Maryland-based rock/jam band O.A.R. celebrated its 20th anniversary recently, and the long-running and perennially busy touring act has no plans to slow down anytime soon.
On Monday, the band premiered a new single, “Just Like Paradise,” and announced a summer tour with support from Matt Nathanson.
Listen to the song below:
Said O.A.R. vocalist/songwriter Marc Roberge of the upbeat, relaxing vibes of the new song:
“It feels like everyone could use a little extra summer fun this year. The song and tour really catch that feeling. We’re looking forward to getting out there, playing what people want to hear, and having as much fun as possible along the way.”
