Jukebox The Ghost Go Half Crazy For Rock Band and Tour

Last week was a busy one for Jukebox the Ghost; not only did the trio release the video for their new single “Summer Sun” but they also debuted their track “Half Crazy” on the Rock Band Network. Fans can challenge themselves and play along with JTG keyboardist Ben Thornewill on the first Rock Band song to earn the “Devil Head” difficulty rating for the keyboard controller, the most difficult rating in the game.

After a stop in Oswego, New York last Friday, Jukebox the Ghost and Wakey!Wakey! will continue their co-headlining tour in Virginia this week. A full list of dates, and the band’s new video, can be found below.

Wakey!Wakey! Announce Tour With Jenny Owen Youngs
