Eli Young Band will “Turn It On” with their new single impacting radio on March 9 and Turn it Up EP (Republic Nashville) slated for March 10. The infectious “Turn It On,” has an up-tempo, monster hook that instantly grabs you and sinks into your head after just one listen. The talented foursome is giving fans a preview of the track across their social media platforms. Listen here.

With a trio of platinum and multi-platinum #1 hits like “Drunk Last Night,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” and “Crazy Girl” under their belts, EYB went into the studio to record four songs, co-written by members of the band, with producers Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover. Thrilled with the evolution of the band’s sound, their label Republic Nashville is releasing the complete collection immediately, fast tracking the single and EP.

“We live in a time when fans are consuming music at a voracious pace as well as having a strong penchant for instant gratification,” said Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President/Big Machine Label Group EVP. He continued, “when we heard the fantastic cutting edge new music from EYB our only instinct was to get it out there to the fans as soon as possible.”

Turn it Up EP is the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed album 10,000 TOWNS. The album made its debut at #1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and earned EYB multiple Grammy, CMA, ACM, CMT, ACA and Billboard award nominations.

With Turn it Up EP, EYB continues to evolve in a fresh and exciting ways. The new music highlights clever lyrics and beat-laden grooves from the band of brothers.

Eli Young Band to perform “Wing-A-Palooza” concert for US Military Troops Stationed Japan

Eli Young Band

Military, Music and Wings – it’s a triple threat combination! As part of its “Battle of the Bases” contest, Pizza Hut and the Army Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) partnered with Eli Young Band to reward Camp Schwab Military Base and neighboring Okinawa bases with a complimentary “Wing-A-Palooza” concert on November 1, 2014 for eating the most Pizza Hut wings among 30 installations worldwide.

Consuming more wings than their fellow service men and women, Camp Schwab in Okinawa, Japan won the contest and along with neighboring Okinawa military bases will enjoy a real treat on Halloween weekend filled with good music, food and the company of EYB lead singer Mike Eli, guitarist James Young, drummer Chris Thompson and bassist Jay Jones. AAFES, more commonly referred to as The Exchange, operates the 30 participating Pizza Hut locations on the military bases and does not make a profit. Rather all monies made by The Exchange are reinvested to make lives better on the US Military bases. The Exchange and Pizza Hut worked together to host the competition and concert.

“Working with AAFES on the inaugural ‘Battle of the Bases’ program has been a tremendous experience and opportunity for Pizza Hut to serve up some of our award-winning WingStreet wings to our military and their families,” said Molly Light, Director, Pizza Hut Express. “We chose Eli Young Band not only because of their local roots, but because of their tremendous passion for the armed services and personal affiliations with family and friends currently serving.”

 

“We all have family in the armed forces, so we jumped at the opportunity to fly to Japan and perform for these men and women that sacrifice so much,” said Eli Young Band. “We’re excited to team up with a company from our own backyard. We’ll always be honored to perform for our military and truth be told we’ve also never said no to pizza either.”

Pizza Hut first introduced its WingStreet concept 10 years ago and officially rolled it out nationally in March, making it present in more than 5,500 restaurants across America. The award-winning WingStreet wings are “kitchen-fried” and tossed with a choice of one of eight sauces to give customers a wing-joint-quality experience from America’s largest pizza company.
