The trio will take to the road this summer, playing a hometown throwdown in Portland, followed by a string of Arizona shows as part of the Red Bull Sound Select Comes to Arizona tour, alongside Classixx, Superhumanoids & The Flavr Blue!
Hustle and Drone was established in February 2012, when keyboardist Ryan Neighborsleft Portugal. the Man to pursue his own songwriting. He teamed up with longtime friend Kirk Ohnstad, and the two immediately began recording & writing. Hustle and Drone released its debut, self-titled EP in July of that year. The band decided to record with producer Sonny DiPerri, which marked the beginning of HOLYLAND- spending time at beach houses & their basement in Portland in order to perfectly craft the record. In the summer of 2013, Kirk made his departure from the group- bringing in bassist Andy Black& Ryan Moore.
