On Thursday, August 29 at 1pm PST/4pm ET, Los Angeles-based indie rock band Grouplove will return to the Red Bull Sound Space at KROQ to put on a dynamic live set for 150 lucky fans.
Since its launch in October 2011, the Red Bull Sound Space is KROQ’s own personal venue, which has hosted bands such as Coldplay, The Black Keys , Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, and dozens more.
The band will be playing some of their smash hits like “Tongue Tied”, as well as previewing new tracks off their forthcoming sophomore album, Spreading Rumors, set for a September 17 release date. If you aren’t one of the 150 lucky fans given the opportunity to see the electrifying performance up close, you can tune-in to the live stream of the show here.
Comprised of Ryan Rabin (drummer), Sean Gadd (bass/vocals), Hannah Hooper (keyboards/vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar/vocals), and Christian Zucconi (vocals/guitar), all of whom met and bonded on the island of Crete in Greece, Grouplove’s music can be heard everywhere from Apple commercials to international festivals such as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury.
Back in 2011, the Canvasback Music/Atlantic quintet released a self-titled six-song EP, which was followed by their full-length debut album, Never Trust A Happy Song, later that year. The album peaked at No. 3 on Billboard‘s Top Heatseekers chart and they have been playing back-to-back sold out headlining tours for surging crowds ever since.
Grouplove will launch a US tour in support of Spreading Rumours on September 9 in Seattle, Washington, with dates scheduled through October. They will begin an Australian tour in January 2014.
Performances will take place in intimate settings with stripped-down shows across the country, including legendary clubs, historic sites, and obscure or rarely used venues.
This isn’t the first time the band has performed at the Red Bull Sound Space, last summer they showed up to play their hits like “Itchin’ On A Photograph” and “Colours” after some Q&A with KROQ’s Kat Corbett
