Hollerado at Bowery Ballroom, June 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)

Ottowa's good time party rockers Hollerado will be bringing their confetti cannons into America (or perhaps buying them while here), opening a few shows for Passion Pit in the South and Midwest. Before they had back across the border, though, they'll stop in NYC for a late show at Mercury Lounge on November 7 with Royal Bangs. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/12) at noon. After that, Hollerado will play a few shows in Canada with their old tour pals Tokyo Police Club. All dates are listed below.

Hollerado's 2010 debut album, Record in a Bag, reamins a fun listen, full of sing-a-long anthems the kind of which used to be heard on alt-rock radio in the mid-'90s and they are a ton of fun live. You can stream it at Spotify. The band are finishing up their second album which should be out early next year and there is video of them in the studio below.

Meanwhile, Passion Pit play SNL this week (10/13) with Christina Applegate hosting.
