The companion music video for “Ways To Go” premiered on the band’s official YouTube channel and can be viewed at http://youtu.be/VGvHnDeS12o. Grouplove will perform “Ways To Go” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on June 18th. Complete track listing for “SPREADING RUMOURS” attached below.
Grouplove came together in 2009 and soon were hailed as a great live act, both as headliners and at such international festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG” arrived in 2011, making a stellar chart debut among the top 5 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers” album chart for new and developing acts. Produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin, the acclaimed album was highlighted by the debut single, “Colours” which received critical acclaim and climbed to the top reaches at Alternative radio outlets nationwide.
“Tongue Tied,” the second single from “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG,” proved an even greater success, earning RIAA platinum certification for sales in excess of 1 million while spending 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Alternative airplay chart. By year’s end, the track had made history as Alternative radio’s second most-played song of 2012, following only Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” The third single, “Itchin’ On A Photograph” also reached the Top 10 at Alternative radio.
Grouplove’s dynamic live sets continued to win over fans on a pair of headline tours, both of which saw sold out crowds at every stop, including a hometown finale at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. That same undeniable energy was seen in an array of high profile television appearances, including CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, NBC’s TODAY and Tonight Show with Jay Leno, TBS’ Conan, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Sean Gadd (bass, vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums).
