Hawaiian shirts, pineapples, catchy Indie-Rock melodies, a British accent and craigslist - all can be used when describing new Southern California based indie-alternative group Lad’s Holiday. The band formed in late 2015 when founding members Cody Seeger and Liam Wilkes met via the reliable world of Craigslist. The two had joined another band via Craigslist before realizing that project was heading in a different direction musically than desired.
Liam and Cody settled on the band name, Lad’s Holiday, after Liam (a Manchester, England native) had used the phrase when describing what Americans may call a “guys trip” or “dudes weekend”. The name stuck and the theme of the band was born (Hawaiian shirts, pineapples, inflatable zebras, etc… you get the idea).
Lad’s Holiday spent a few months writing and recording their 6-track debut EP tiled “THE EP”. THE EP was released in June of 2016.
So far in 2016 Lad’s Holiday has played at Music Box, SOMA, 710 Beach Club, Sofar Sounds San Diego and is scheduled to play Dec. 12th at Soda Bar and Dec. 30th at Tin Roof San Diego. Look for the Indie rockers to put out their first full-length album in the beginning of 2017
