As predicted, 2018 turned out to be another stellar year for multi-Platinum California pop-rockers Smash Mouth. Literally spanning the globe, Smash Mouth was active all 12 months of last year (and crushing it wherever they went). With 151 Million Streams on Spotify, 28 million fans and 7 million hours of streaming in 65 countries, Smash Mouth remains as hot as ever. They carry this energetic momentum into 2019, because for Smash Mouth 2019 will be different and special. 2019 will be a year-long celebration of the 20-year anniversary of Smash Mouth’s quadruple platinum album “ASTROLOUNGE”.
Formed in late 1994, the band immediately began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood. In June of 1997, Smash Mouth signed with Interscope Records after L.A. radio stations began playing their smash hit song “Walking On The Sun”.
Smash Mouth’s 1997 major-label debut “FUSH YU MANG” goes more than double platinum and sets the table for the band’s 1999 quadruple platinum masterpiece “ASTROLOUNGE” which included the bands iconic hit single “ALL-STAR”.
Smash Mouth’s eponymous third Interscope release featured the buoyant first single “PACIFIC COAST PARTY” and the smash hit “I’M A BELIEVER”. Around this time, the band crossed over into the film world, providing the heart of the “SHREK” soundtrack and even making a cameo appearance in the 2001 comedy “RAT RACE”.
Smash Mouth bounds into 2019 with it’s classic lineup of Steve Harwell, Paul DeLisle, Greg Camp, Mike “Hippy” Klooster, and Randy Cooke, solidly intact and ready to pay homage to their masterpiece sophomore album (as well as other hits from the SM galaxy). As part of the 20th Anniversary of “ASTROLOUNGE”, the band will be releasing a special remix of “ALL-STAR” and a new album for 2019. See ya all in the ‘19 baby!
