NYC/Boston-based foursome HOORAY FOR EARTH just got a lot busier. Before their highly-anticipated US tour with Surfer Blood and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart this summer, the band will give a special stripped-down KEXP "Cutting Room" performance of songs from their warm synth-filled MOMO EP (Dovecote, June 1). The session will air on Monday, May 10 at 8am PST on 90.3 FM KEXP in Seattle, 11am EST on 91.5 FM Radio New York, and online at KEXP.org. Hooray For Earth will also celebrate the EP's release with an unmissable record release show with label mates The Futureheads on June 1st at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY. And visit Philadelphia's WXPN Online where they chose "Surrounded By Your Friends" as a My Morning Download.
