Announcement, publicity, and release

The album was first mentioned in an interview with Scott Leonard during the band's 2010 holiday tour, where he revealed it would include both "new and newly arranged Christmas songs." No other official news about the album was released until October 2, 2011, when Rockapella appeared on the Japanese internet show WorldNet.tv during their Japanese tour and disclosed the name of the album to be A Rockapella Holiday and that it would be released in November 2011. On November 16, 2011, Rockapella posted a picture on their official Facebook account announcing the cover art and track list for the album and that it would be available on iTunes the next day, with physical copies available by the end of the month.
