Callahan is streaming its new EP Summer Sampler on the front page of Purevolume www.purevolume.com/callahan today. The band will also be performing an acoustic set and doing an online chat with fans on www.Stickam.com tonight at 9pm eastern. Hailing from Springfield, Ohio, Callahan is an energetic band who strives to separate itself from the standard formula of pop-punk and has quickly caught the attention of the music industry. The band's last release, Face the Day, was produced by Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Attack Attack!, Let Get It) received critical praise from such places such as The Daily Chorus, Absolute Punk, Purevolume, Alternative Press Magazine, Substream Magazine, and Fearless Radio. In addition, the band managed on several occasions to be the #1 unsigned band in the country according to the Purevolume charts. The album is still a top seller at Smartpunk.com and the band has managed to get their CD and merchandise into Hot Topic stores. Founded by childhood friends, drummer Wes Comer, guitarist Brad Comer, and bassist Jake Sims, the addition of vocalist Ryan Clay proved a perfect match as the band immediately meshed together a unique blend of genres. Callahan's highly anticipated follow up to Face The Day was released today through all digital retailers, (iTunes, Amazon, etc) today. Summer Sampler showcases the band's growth as musicians, yet still keeps that vibrant the sound that their fans have come to know and love intact.
