LOS ANGELES, CA (October 1, 2020) – Rock artist BALD MAN today announced the HELLBILLY HOLLOW-WEEN NORTH AMERICAN TOUR, a COVID-19 safe live concert and movie premiere experience. Featuring hard rock and heavy metal radio personality Eddie Trunk (select show dates), the run will kick off in Frenchtown, NJ on Friday, October 16, and include 16 show dates with more to be announced soon. To help aid in the pediatric treatment and research of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, a significant portion of proceeds from the Hellbilly Hollow-ween North American Tour will be donated by Bald Man’s L Foundation charity to St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
In support of Music for the Rest of Us, Bald Man’s recently released 10-track debut studio album of original material, HELLBILLY HOLLOW-WEEN NORTH AMERICAN TOUR features a premiere screening of Bald Man’s new horror film, Hellbilly Hollow, which features six tracks from Music for the Rest of Us on the film’s soundtrack, and a live concert performance of the entire album. To keep fans safe during the tour, shows will be limited to 25% occupancy, and include temperature checks, face coverings, and hand sanitizer stations for all guests.

“Nothing goes better with Halloween than serving up a new horror film with a side of in-your-face rock ‘n roll,” said Bald Man. “These projects have been years in the making and I can’t wait to hit the road and share Music for the Rest of Us and Hellbilly Hollow with fans across the country. It’s showtime.”
Touring members are bassist Michael Devin (Whitesnake, Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience), guitarist Brent Woods (Vince Neil, Sebastian Bach, John Waite, Kristin Chenoweth), guitarist Nick Maybury (Perry Farrell, Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts) musical director and keyboardist Steve Ferlazzo ( Avril Lavigne, Nuno Bettencourt, R.S.O.), and drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Foreigner, Billy Idol), who is also featured on the album.
“It has been an honor recording with Bald Man. I’ve been having a blast, too, as I really get to stretch my legs as a guitar player,” said Bald Man lead guitarist, Phil X. “It would’ve been awesome to do this tour with all my bros, too, but with Bon Jovi, The Drills and other projects on my plate, it was hard to connect the dots. There is HUGE talent in the current lineup, and this is exactly what people need right now, especially after being stuck at home for the last seven months. In the end, I believe it’s ‘music’ that will bring us all back together and get us through this.”
General public tickets will be available for purchase starting today through participating venue Box Offices and ticketing websites.

Music for the Rest of Us blends genres such as hard rock, southern rock, and country, and features an array of powerful, in-your-face, adrenaline-filled tracks. The album is recorded by engineer Jason Decter (blink-182, Weezer, Panic at the Disco), produced by Bald Man and Decter, mixed by Chris Lord-Alge (Green Day, Muse, Carrie Underwood), and mastered by multi-GRAMMY® award-winning Chief Mastering Engineer Ted Jensen (Eagles, Norah Jones, Billy Joel). Last month, Bald Man released the album’s first single “Fight,” and its accompanying high-production music video set in a future post-apocalyptic world. The music video for “Fight” can be viewed on YouTube and Vevo.
Starring Bald Man, Kevin Wayne, Megan Weaver, and Hallie Shepherd, Hellbilly Hollow follows a team of YouTube paranormal activity seekers who journey to a haunted attraction in the backwoods of Alabama to find more than they bargained for as they follow thrill-seekers on a haunted hayride. There, Bull (Bald Man) protects his not-so-small younger brother, Tickles (Kevin Wayne) from the outside world, but who protects the outside world from the murderous Tickles? Bald Man is featured in films such as Halloween (2018) as Teller, who was killed by Michael Myers, and Trading Paint (2019), where he acted alongside John Travolta and Shania Twain.
