Are you getting excited for Fireball? We sure are! It’s going to be the biggest party of summer. To get the embers glowing, we talked with Jeff Roalson of The Olympics about what’s to come!

How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard you before?
Upbeat indie rock.

What are you most looking forward to at Fireball?
Really hard to pick one aspect: We love playing with The Envy Corps, and Simon Estes is a great outdoor venue in a great city. Throw Pyrotechniq in the mix and I think this will likely be the most exciting and unique show of this tour!

What are your upcoming tour or album plans?
This particular show will be the third to last show of our August tour which includes nine dates around the midwest. This fall we will continue to work on new material that will be on our next album as well as several shows scattered around Iowa and the surrounding states.

Are you going to do anything special/unique as a band for this particular performance?
I know we’re bringing a few props/decorations with us on tour so I’m sure we’ll either be clothed in and/or surrounded by something a little special!
