Since forming in 2009, LA-based indie band Grouplove has quickly become one of music’s most exhilarating young acts. By the time they released their 2011 debut full length, Never Trust A Happy Song (Canvasback Music/Atlantic), Grouplove was already a standout at music festivals around the world, including Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading & Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. Produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin, Never Trust A Happy Song featured their debut single “Colours.” Hailed by SPIN as “one of the most infectious songs you’re bound to hear,” the song climbed to the top 15 at Alternative radio and continues to be a fan favorite. Their follow-up single “Tongue Tied” garnered even greater success, going to #1 and earning platinum certification, with sales exceeding one million. Grouplove’s raucous live show brought surging crowds to their Coachella and Bonnaroo performances and back-to-back sold out headlining tours. By the end of 2012, “Tongue Tied” was Alternative radio’s second most played song (following only Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”). The band has brought their undeniable energy to national television with appearances on shows including “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “Today.”
Grouplove’s second full length album, Spreading Rumours, arrives September 17. The highly anticipated collection’s lead single “Ways To Go” is currently #12 on the Alternative radio charts and climbing. A fall headlining tour will also include a stop at the Austin City Limits music festival.
Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Sean Gadd (bass, vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums).
