The Happy Fits Announce Additional Shows and Venue Upgrades

Due to popular demand, The Happy Fits have expanded their What Could Be Better 2021 headlining tour with a string of new dates this fall in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Columbus along with upgrading 5 shows to larger venues.

Originally set to begin in early November, the tour will now kick off on October 24 in Baltimore and see the band hitting major cities across the country with sold out nights in New York, Columbus, Chicago, and Los Angeles before closing out the run December 15 in Washington, DC. Tickets for the What Could Be Better tour are on sale now on The Happy Fits' website. Full routing below.

Alongside the announcement of expanded dates, the orchestral tinged indie-pop trio have released an action-packed, pickleball themed music video for "Get a Job" - PRESS HERE to watch. Facing the repetitiveness of their drab 9 to 5 existence, the band - Calvin Langman, Ross Monteith, and Luke Davis - decide to enter Langman in an area pickleball tournament. Competing against a cast of quirky pickleball contestants, our hero goes full Rocky Balboa on his foes to achieve the "eye of the tiger" win.

Built on the desire to connect with a world that's sometimes distant, What Could Be Better is a mission statement that's meant to be shared, channeling youthful malaise into songs like "Get A Job" as well as "The Garden," "Sailing," "Two of Many," and "Hold Me Down" that demand to be sung as a celebration of our collective ability to overcoming the obstacles, barriers and hurdles we all maneuver in our effort to level up morally and emotionally.

Alternative Press, DuJour, PopMatters, Atwood Magazine and others have all signed on to champion the band's unique, guitar-and-cello rock, with NPR pondering "What Could Be Better? I honestly don't know." Their vividly-written songs emphasize growing pains and life-changing realizations, which has helped The Happy Fits cultivate an eager and engaged fanbase who have propelled consumption rates through the roof.

Building on the momentum of their breakthrough hit "While You Fade Away" from their debut EP Awfully Apeelin', which logged the #5 spot on Spotify's Top 50 Viral USA Charts and #17 on the Spotify's Top 50 Viral Global Charts, the band recently achieved their first Billboard charting with "Hold Me Down," landing at #36 on the Alternative Airwaves chart. Meanwhile, the band's streaming numbers continue their rapid growth, with monthly listeners jumping from 560,000 to over 760,000 on Spotify in the last 60 days as they approach 50 million global streams. "Hold Me Down" continues to resonate with listeners, where it reached #5 on the SiriusXM Alt 18 Countdown and #32 on the Alternative Radio Chart.

In addition to their music, the band regularly connect with their fans through their Twitch channel or YouTube Gaming channel, where they explore the worlds of Minecraft, Among Us, Stardew Valley and Call of Duty (which they recently played with Ryan Key of Yellowcard).
