About Holiday Friends
Greetings from Astoria, Oregon!
The core members of what is now Holiday Friends met while attending college at the University of Idaho in 2008. Originally forming as a surf-rock band (Shitty Pete and the Fux) they wisely decided on a name change once it was time to get a bit more serious and begin writing original material. Brothers Scott and Jon Fagerland along with Zack O'Connor slowly relocated to Astoria while Jesse Wityczak stayed behind to finish grad school, all the while remaining a vital "satellite" member. The lineup was solidified when drummer Brian Bovenizer joined in 2011.
Last year the band self-released their (nearly-out-of-print) debut "Chicks" and hit the road supporting Blind Pilot for dates on the West Coast. A sophomore effort (recorded at Portland's Type Foundry Studio) is being completed and readied for a late summer/early fall release.Map & Directions
