New Hollow

New Hollow is an American rock band from New Albany, Ohio. The band is composed of Michael "Mookie" Clouse, Evan West & Chad Blashford.

New Hollow was founded by three students at New Albany High School (Ohio), who initially began playing together while still elementary school students under the name Monkee Hollow. The single, entitled "SiCK", was released November 1, 2010, and reached the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 86. The single sold over 28,000 physical copies in its first week, en route to selling 140,000 units by early 2011. The group signed an agreement with Justice, a girls' clothing store, to market their debut single, with that deal ending in April 2013.

In November 2010, the band also performed The Star-Spangled Banner at the nationally televised Thanksgiving Day football game between the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys on Fox TV. In January 2011, the band played at events for then-governor-elect of Ohio, John Kasich to become the first rock band in history to perform inside the Ohio Statehouse.

In December 2010. New Hollow's single "SiCK" beat out Katy Perry's "California Gurls" as the top single of 2010 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart.

Their first three singles all climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart. The first time ever for an unsigned band with no radio play.

In December 2011. New Hollow's single "Boyfriend" topped Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" as the No. 1 single of 2011 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart.
