Rock band O.A.R. is having quite a month. June isn’t even half over and O.A.R has already been the house band for the entire hour on the “Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda” on June 3rd including a performance of their single “Peace” accompanied by the Mt. Carmel-Holy Rosary Schoolof East Harlem. Later that week, the band visited with thefamed Staten Island elementary school chorus at PS 22 in a rendition of “Peace.” The single is a bonafide hit at HAC and Triple A radio charts and they have a massive national concert tour kicking off this Thursday, June 12th with Phillip Phillips. To cap off an incredible month, the band’s new album, The Rockville LP, which is being heralded as O.A.R.’s best work in years, is available today.

Inspired by their hometown of Rockville, Maryland, The Rockville LP showcases a much more introspective and personal side to the band. Respected music critic Tom Lanham, with the SF Examiner said “Their jubilant new effort…is frothing with celebratory new anthems like ‘Peace,’ ‘Two Hands up,’ and ‘We’ll Pick Up Where We Left Off’ – tracks every bit as addictive as the No. 1 breakthrough single ‘Shattered (Turn the Car Around).'”

After a special in store performance for fans tonight at Vintage Vinyl in St. Louis, the band will go straight into final rehearsals for an epic, 26-date concert tour with Phillip Phillips, which kicks off Thursday in St. Louis and runs through the end of July, culminating with a date in Atlanta’s Chastain Park Amphitheatre. The band announced earlier this week that they have partnered with Habitat for Humanity with $1.00 from every ticket sold O.A.R. and Phillip Phillips will donate to Habitat.
