Los Angeles – September 27, 2022 – Long-time friends and collaborators Jason Richardson and Luke Holland today announced they will debut their newest album release, II, on October 1 at 6 p.m. PDT (9 p.m. EDT) via an international, live streaming performance exclusively on HITKOR. This will be the duo’s first online streaming event that will feature tracks from both their debut and most recent release.
The broadcast will be available to the public in more than 30 countries. Virtual tickets are $17.99, while ALL ACCESS passes that include behind-the-scenes content and interviews are $19.99. Included with every ticket purchase are five free issues of PREMIER Guitar magazine.
“Luke and I are so proud of this new record and we can’t wait to play some of the new stuff for everyone,” says Richardson. “Thanks to HITKOR for making our first-ever global live record release a reality. The production is going to be insane!”
Their recent video single for the track “Sparrow” is a highly stylized piece featuring cellist Tina Guo (https://youtu.be/CBPtMdu39HE).
Richardson and Holland have amassed millions of social media followers and hundreds of millions of video views of their online performances. Richardson, 31, a Virginia native who lives in Los Angeles, is a progressive metal guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and instructor who has also designed signature guitars with Ernie Ball Music Man. Guitar World recently proclaimed him one of the 20 best guitarists on the planet. Holland, 29, hails from Arizona and also lives in Los Angeles. Currently on the road with Falling in Reverse (which earned its third number one on Billboard‘s Hot Hard Rock Songs chart earlier this year), Holland won Modern Drummer Magazine’s 2022 Reader’s Poll for the streaming and social media category, and has played with acts including RÜFÜS DU SOL, Playboi Carti and more.
