The band’s debut album, “Fashionably Late,” will release on September 15 and its first single, “Over You,” is now rolling out on radio stations nationwide.
Delivering an R&B/pop/rock sound, skilled musicianship, energetic live shows and a sense of style, Honor Society was named a breakout band to watch by Rolling Stone, identified as Buzzworthy Artists by MTV and opened for one of the most popular tour this year, Jonas Brother World Tour 2009 with Jordin Sparks.
Honor Society built its substantial and loyal fan base by utilizing social networks including Twitter, You Tube and over 3.5 million music plays on MySpace.
Their hit single, “Where Are You Now?,” is #16 on the Radio Disney Top 30 and appears on the soundtrack to “Bandslam.” The band is currently headlining a club tour, The Full Moon Crazy Tour, and recently sold out New York’s famed Fillmore Theater at Irving Plaza and L.A.’s House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard.
