Army of Freshmen is a rock band based out of Ventura, California established in 1997. They have performed over 1,500 shows in 13 countries and 43 US states. The band have released three albums and four singles since their first release in 2001. They have also signed with multiple record companies including Blue Hand Records, 33rd Street Records
During time on tour, the band was introduced to another rock band, Bowling For Soup. Later, both bands became the co co-creators of the Get Happy Tour, that launched in 2006.
As a result of the Global Financial Crisis, the band suffered with finding a record label that would sign them. However they took matters into their own hands with seeking additional crowd funded projects including acoustic EPs, writing and film production.
