The Band Perry announces tour

Friday, August 5, 2011 – The Band Perry announced The Purveyors of Performance Tour - a trek of approximately 75 dates that will include their own headlining shows, support dates for Keith Urban, Reba and yet-to-be-announced dates with one of country's major touring acts.

The tour starts Aug. 15 in Lewisburg, West Va. and will continue into 2012 with performances at theaters, arenas, amphitheaters and even stadiums.

"It has always been our dream to play country music," the band said in a statement. "We've been on the road as a family band for 13 years and experienced the intimacy of theaters, the energy of county fairs and the joy of connecting with new faces as we support these amazing artists at arenas and amphitheaters. Artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Reba were the ones who originally inspired us to dream they have helped our dreams come true. We couldn't be more grateful to them or excited about the future."

The band is also approaching the end of Tim McGraw's Emotional Traffic tour. The experience has left the sibling trio in awe. "Tim McGraw is a gentleman, a gracious host and the epitome of a mega-star - we have learned so much from him."

This month, TBP will debut a new video, be on the Teen Choice Awards, where they have two nominations (Aug. 7), perform on CMA Music Festival: Country's Night To Rock on ABC (Aug.14) and a Jimmy Kimmel Live! concert (Aug. 17).

The new video for their fourth country single, All Your Life, is planned for a mid-August debut. The cinematic video will feature TBP as a vagabond troupe and inspired the "Purveyors of Performance" theme of the upcoming tour.

The band is also celebrating the extended life of If I Die Young, which has gone from being the number one song in country to the pop charts. The single is at 15 on the Top 40 Chart, 9 on the Hot A/C Chart and 14 on the A/C Chart, according to Billboard.

CD reviews for The Band Perry

CD review - Pioneer Sports fans may be familiar with the term "sophomore slump," where a player has an excellent rookie season, but then struggles mightily in his second. With "Pioneer," The Band Perry demonstrates that the phrase can carry over to the music world as well. Where the group's debut was quirky and showed real potential, their second release takes some artistic steps backwards while developing a more mainstream sound. The lead single and opening track, Better Dig Two, also ...
CD review - The Band Perry (full length CD) Image-wise, the siblings of The Band Perry are aiming squarely at the youth market. Sister and lead singer Kimberly has a Taylor Swift thing going on, with big curly blonde hair, while brothers Neil and Reid could be Jonases as easily as Perrys. Their musical style trends young, as well. There's an element of bluegrass in the music, but it's often more of a grace note on top of the pop-rock guitars and drums that remain the focus of the album. Lyrically, the songs also offer a ...
The Band Perry gets its name from the fact that all three of its members are siblings. There's Kimberly Perry, who sings lead, in addition to playing piano and guitar. Her brother Reid Perry is the bassist, while Neil Perry plays drums, mandolin and accordion. The centerpiece song of this five-track EP is the single If I Die Young, which is made all the more striking by the fact that it's also sung by a young lady. Being young is usually no time to contemplate death - leave that to the old folks. ...
