Ron Gallo will release the vinyl edition of his ‘Really Nice Guys EP on Record Store Day, April 21st, 2018. Released in January on compact disc and digitally, the 8-song set was produced by Joe Bisirri and Gallo and is a concept EP which pokes fun at himself and the year he spent supporting his New West Records debut, ‘Heavy Meta.

Write what you know, Ron Gallo!” he says. “Turning a person into a brand, turning a real life human moment into a song, into content, into an asset to be monetized, talking to people about myself and stuff I wrote 3 years ago, watching it all unfold in the public eye…” He continues, “It wasn’t what I thought it would be and it was beautiful and I am grateful, but mostly this whole world or pursuing music and the music business is hilarious. So how do you deal with that? Have fun by entertaining yourself with an EP of you laughing at yourself about all of it and call it Really Nice Guys, which is probably all I’ve been for most of this.”

Gallo has also announced his initial 2018 tour dates which include appearances during both weekends at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, Levitation Festival, Hangout Music Festival, Firefly Music Festival and more. Gallo will also be appearing multiple times at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX this week.
