BAND BIO

Happy Abandon is an orchestral indie rock band based in Chapel Hill consisting of Peter Vance, Jake Waits, Alex Thompson, and Justin Ellis. Although the four members met as students at UNC in 2010, Happy Abandon didn’t form until early 2015. After significant legwork on the road and at home throughout 2016, the band is currently planning tours all over the US in April, June, and September, and will release their first Album in August 2017 on Schoolkids Records.
