If you’re a diehard American Idol fan, you’ll no doubt remember the red-haired and spunky Season 8 contestant, Allison Iraheta. While her major label debut (Just Like You in 2009) failed to make a big splash, she recently formed a new band called Halo Circus. Recently, the new rock-infused group, which includes long-time guitarist David Immerman and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Hager, stopped by Yahoo! Music to debut some new songs!
Hager has an impressive resume, boasting projects with the Backstreet Boys and Duran Duran and Scott Weiland. In fact, the group’s “Something Special” was even co-penned by Duran Duran’s John Taylor! Awesome!
Plus, in the interview (posted below), Allison talks about how the band came about and much more!
Check out their groovy performances after the JUMP.
“Guns in Our Hands”
