With just a few weeks to go before their biggest ever UK headline tour – The Get Happy Tour 2018 – Texas’ very own crown princes of pop punk Bowling For Soup are ramping up the excitement even further with the release of their latest single.
Continuing the positivity of other songs from their most recent album Drunk Dynasty such as their last two singles “Hey Diane” and the life affirming “Don’t Be A Dick”, new single “Catalyst” offers something slightly different to many other Bowling For Soup songs. The song has an arena rock feel but with a pop punk soul, telling the positive story of how one person can help change someone’s life around, even when they are at their lowest.
You can check out the lyric video for Catalyst here:
The release of Catalyst comes as excitement for The Get Happy Tour is growing rapidly among Bowling For Soup fans all over the UK. With Bowling For Soup set to play their breakthrough smash hit album Drunk Enough To Dance in full for the first time plus a selection of their other favourites, “The BFS Army” have been granted their wish for a tour they have been waiting for for many years.
Throw in the comedic stylings of rock’s resident superheroes The Aquabats! and Get Happy Tour alumni Army Of Freshmen who are also going to be celebrating their hit album Under The Radar by playing it in full, and The Get Happy Tour 2018 will be something talked about for many years to come.
The Get Happy Tour 2018 will play nine shows across the UK in February 2018, culminating in two enormous shows at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena and London’s Brixton Academy. The full list of shows can be found below:

Get Happy 2018 is set to be an exciting time for everyone, and possibly the most excited person of all is Bowling For Soup’s own Jaret Reddick! Here are his thoughts on reviving The Get Happy Tour:
“I’m super excited about this tour! GET HAPPY is 11 years old! That’s just crazy! And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than bringing it back, with Army of Freshmen from the original lineup and adding The Aquabats! on to make it even happier! Now I need to get back to relearning all of the Drunk Enough To Dance songs!!!”
