co-founded by former American Idol star Iraheta and multi-platinum
producer, producer and bassist Matthew Hager (Duran Duran, Scott Weiland), joined on guitar by Brian Stead. Refreshing, arresting and completely original, Allison Iraheta + Halo Circus have developed a reputation for their impressive live performances. The band released their highly anticipated debut full-length album, Bunny, on June 24, 2016 and embarked their first tour. The album received a great deal of critical acclaim, including one LA Music Critic award for Best Pop Female Artist (Allison Iraheta) and four nominations: Best Rock Band; Best Pop Female; Best Single (Desire); and Best Video (Desire).
The band recently released their new EP “The East Lansing Sessions,” recorded during their stop in East Lansing, MI. The 5-track EP features stripped-down, raw acoustic versions of singles from Bunny with “Nothing At All,” “All I Have,” and “Band-Aid;” along with additional tracks “Stand Up” and “The Needle and the Damage Done.” The EP premiered on Yahoo Music and is already receiving rave reviews from Popdust and Celebmix.
