Through a bulletin posted on the band’s myspace page ( they announced they would be “invading New York” in order to “take part” in the CMJ music Marathon.

Halo’s buzz is louder than ever not only because of their upcoming showcase for CMJ, but also because of their new distribution deal with Yuzu Music.

Fans cannot get enough of the Hum meets Minus the Bears energetic 4-piece. The band even created a second myspace page ( just so hungry fans could listen to their practices and demos and get a sense of the band’s new material.
