On tour, Pepper Rabbit will continue to showcase stand out tracks from Beauregard, like “Older Brother”, as well as tracks from their new sophomore album.
Red Velvet Snow Ball is to be released on August 9th, 2011 on Kanine Records. The Los Angeles duo continues to be inspired by the band’s birthplace, New Orleans.
