RapScallions will release their debut self-titled EP on October 11, 2011. The record release party, also on Oct. 11, will be held at Hollywood’s On the Rox. For such a young band, RapScallions has already enjoyed plenty of success. “We were very lucky to have an all-star team working on our EP. We recorded it at Interscope studios in Santa Monica with producer Wendy Starland, who is credited with discovering and developing Lady Gaga.   She’s such a great producer to work with, because she gets the best performances out of us and really knows how to capture our sound. Chris Cheney from Interscope engineered. We had Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Shania Twain) mix our single ‘California Brain’ and Paul Lapinski (Ludacris, Alicia Keys) mixed the rest of the EP.”

The accompanying video for “California Brain,” directed and edited by Matt Silver and produced by RapScallions bassist Chris Clemence, is hilarious and is sure to be a viral favorite. “The video pokes fun at ‘American Idol’ and is about the ‘California Dream’ of people coming to Hollywood to make it big,” Clemence explains. “RapScallions play all the roles in the video, and director Matt Silver and RapScallions’ album producer Wendy Starland make guest appearances.”
