Known for their blend of roots, rock, and bluegrass, the indie-folk rockers, The 502s, are set to spark positive vibes at their upcoming GREAT AMERICAN ROAD TRIP TOUR, hitting 26 cities in the U.S. As the "happiest band on Earth", they're set to release new tracks that'll get you pumped up to live a fulfilling life; their new self-titled album comes out on April 12th. Following its grand release, they're kicking off the ultimate road trip, calling all of their fans to join and sing their hearts out on the road.

From writing songs with a $100 banjo and a borrowed guitar in college, Ed Isola began a legacy that soon became one of the nation's most beloved indie bands in the folk scene. Known as a "folk orchestra" band for their captivating blend of rock, bluegrass, and other genres that exude positive vibes, their live shows have been praised for its "rambunctious energy, stomping sounds... and charismatic personalities," Cowboys & Indians noted in a review.

In just three years, they went from local bars to sold-out tours across the U.S. and across Europe, fueled by their breakout hit "Just A Little While". Though for its loyal and tight-knit fanbase, the band's success isn't defined by their viral hit, it's the positivity and joy that they share in every song released and performance delivered. Led by Ed Isola, the happy-go-lucky musicians have sparked a legacy of life-affirming shows, creating music that heals.

Their TikTok-viral hits "Magdalene" and "Just A Little While" propelled the band towards global success, massively increasing their following and fanbase. In a conversation with VARSITY UK, Isola shared that "continued authenticity" is the main reason behind their success. "All the videos that have gone viral for us are things that we’ve obsessed over making," sharing that virality isn't planned, it naturally comes to those who keep doing what they love.

Known for their feel-good music that shaped a community of life-affirming believers of The 502s music, they hope to continue sharing love and happiness to the best that they can. "We just want to give all that love back and make everyone feel as good as we possibly can," Tonner shared.

As The 502s kick off the "Great American Road Trip Tour", heading to Irving Plaza on April 23rd, better call your friends for a poppin' time of great music live on stage. Don't miss out on the party by booking your tickets now!
