Grouplove today shared a music video for “Good Morning”, the latest single off their critically acclaimed third album Big Mess. Entertainment Weeklypremiered the video, praising “the clip is everything fans have come to expect from the indie rock group – bright colors, high energy, a trippy premise, and a whole lot of fun.” The neo-noir drive through Los Angeles’s Chinatown features actress Elle Fanning (Super 8, Maleficent, The Neon Demon) and was directed by Christopher Blauvelt. Watch it HERE. Big Mess is available digitally HERE and physically HERE now via Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records.
This morning, Grouplove also announced an additional US leg of their Big Mess World Tour that kicks off on January 30, 2017 in Knoxville, TN and wraps on April 13, 2017 in Santa Cruz, CA. One dollar for every ticket sold will be donated to the organization charity: water to help fund water projects like drilled wells, spring protections, and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world. More info can be found HERE. A complete list of upcoming tour dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
Earlier this month, Grouplove shared an EP of remixes of the album’s lead single, “Welcome To Your Life”. Featuring contributions from Gigamesh, Taylor Wise, Sweekuh, and Lucas Nord, the EP is available now via the band’s Soundcloud and digital services. “Welcome To Your Life” recently entered the Top 10 of the Modern Rock/Alternative Radio Chart at No. 7. Upon its release this past June, the track was the No. 1 most added song at alternative radio for three consecutive weeks.
Grouplove recently gave fans an immersive live performance of “Welcome To Your Life” filmed with Facebook’s Surround 360 camera technology, which captured a fully spherical, high-resolution view of the moment. The 3D-360 experience brings viewers as close as they can get to a live Grouplove performance without actually having tickets to a front-row seat.The innovative music video, which was premiered on Facebook, can be seen below.
Recorded in Los Angeles and Seattle with producers Captain Cuts (Grouplove’s own Ryan Rabin) and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, The Shins), Big Mess features the signature choruses and infectious hooks that first brought the Los Angeles quintet to prominence. No stranger to the worldwide festival circuit, Grouplove has made an album that showcases their richly narrated songs.
To celebrate the release of Big Mess, Grouplove hosted a fan-generated music video contest through Genero.tv. The band is currently selecting its favorite submission for each track on the album and is rewarding $3,000 to each of the 11 winners. Having already chosen several winners, Grouplove will share the remaining selections biweekly HERE.
