Raleigh, N.C. (March 22, 2018) – Band Together NC, a Triangle-based organization that uses live music as a platform for social change, has announced the lineup for this year’s Main Event concert on June 1 at Red Hat Amphitheater.  The eight-piece soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones will headline the show, with two opening artists to be announced soon. The event will benefit and celebrate the 2019 Band Together/Inter-Faith Food Shuttle partnership. The opening artist is Toots & The Maytals.
 
Tickets will go on sale Friday, February 8th through E-tix.

The Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band- St. Paul & The Broken Bones formed in 2012, releasing their debut album Half the City in 2014 and its follow up, 2016’s Sea of Noise, to much acclaim. Those strong efforts helped place them on the national scene, and the band worked hard to prove they were no mere retro-soul band—from touring the world relentlessly, and including being selected to open for The Rolling Stones and headlining two nights at the Ryman Auditorium, to TV appearances including The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Austin City Limits & two appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Paul Janeway’s fearless showmanship, thoughtful lyrics, and dedication to his performance soon became the band’s calling card, and paired with the inventive and skillful direction of co-band leader Jesse Phillips as well as a full eight-man roster comprised of some of the best young instrumentalists in the South, they soon became a must-see event. St. Paul & The Borken Bones are; Janeway (lead vocals),  and Phillips (bass and guitar),  Browan Lollar (guitars), Andrew Lee (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone) and Amari Ansari (saxophone).
 
Join Band Together and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in raising over $1 Million to fight child hunger in the Triangle. Ticket sales, individual donations and corporate sponsorships to our 2019 Main Event concert will directly support the Food Shuttle’s new Child Food Hub, a dedicated 7,000 sq. ft.facility in Durham, to increase the impact of these Child Hunger Programs. In the next five years, this space will grow BackPack Buddies by more than 50% and increase School Pantries by 44%.

Los Angeles, GRAMMY-winning artist Anderson .Paak has announced a new LP, ‘Ventura ‘to be released April 12th via Aftermath Entertainment, exclusively distributed by 12 Tone Music, LLC. Executive produced by Dr. Dre the album was recorded at the same time as his most recent album Oxnard

 

“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to ‘Ventura’”  –Anderson .Paak

 

The album is his fourth as the acclaimed artist continues to work his way up the coast. With the announce of the new album also comes news of his biggest tour yet, produced by Live Nation with dates that include Madison Square Garden, Red Rocks and support from Thundercat on the entire tour and Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco and Jessie Reyez on select dates.

 

Anderson .Paak with special guests Noname and Thundercat will play Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh on June 6.

The Oxnard album marked a career high for him debuting as the #1 Independent album in the country according to Billboard as well as debuting at #5 on the Rap chart, #6 on the Hip Hop/R&B chart and #11 on the Top 200. The phenomenal album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and features the likes of hip-hop legends Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Q-Tip, and Pusha T. Following the album’s release, .Paak has been on a sold-out tour in both the US and Europe, with fans anxious to see his energetic and captivating live performances.

Jon Bellion will launch an extensive 35-city North American amphitheater tour this summer titled The Glory Sound Prep Tour, kicking off June 12 at The Met in Philadelphia. The headline run, produced by Live Nation, will include a July 12 concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and an August 10 hometown show at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Long Island. The tour will make additional stops in Atlanta, Miami, Nashville, San Francisco and more, before wrapping August 11 at MECU Pavilion in Baltimore.  

Bellion will be touring in support of his new album, Glory Sound Prep, which includes the singles “Conversations with my Wife,” “JT” and “Stupid Deep.” Released last week by Capitol Records/Visionary Music Group, the album is available HERE. It includes collaborations with GRAMMY®-winning producer Quincy Jones, Roc Marciano, RZA, B. Keyz and Travis Mendes. Billboard said, “Throughout the 10-track album, Bellion seamlessly intertwines sounds of pop, R&B, hip-hop and rock through his electrifying songs.”

Glory Sound Prep is the follow-up to the New York-based artist’s RIAA Gold-certified 2016 debut album, The Human Condition, which has sold more than 1.5 million adjusted albums and amassed upwards of 1.7 billion cumulative streams. “All Time Low,” the lead single, was a Top 10 hit at Top 40 radio and is now certified 3x Platinum. All three legs of The Human Condition Tour sold out.

Bellion got his start with a series of mixtapes featuring his original songs – all recorded in his parents’ basement. He built a remarkable following by sharing his music directly with listeners, giving away more than 200,000 free downloads of 2014’s The Definition and playing live for fans on two sold-out national tours. Also a sought-after collaborator, Bellion co-wrote and produced “Trumpets” for Jason Derulo and co-wrote the GRAMMY Award winning, 10x-Platinum hit “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna. He co-wrote and co-produced Christina Aguilera’s recent single, “Fall in Line” featuring Demi Lovato.

Last week Vampire Weekend released the songs “Harmony Hall” and “2021" from their upcoming fourth album, Father of the Bride, to an ecstatic critical reaction including:

“Sprawls out with lush symphonies, communal vibes aplenty”—Billboard 

“Wraps misgivings in three-chord elation”—The New York Times (Playlist lead)

“Buoyant, filled with the kind of sunlit energy created when throwing open the shutters.” —Pitchfork

“A swooning tune packed with kind vibes” —Rolling Stone

“A vibrant romp that seamlessly blends folksy fingerstyle guitar, ’90s rave music, a gospel choir, baroque piano, and the Grateful Dead… it’s absolutely delightful”—Stereogum 

 Father of the Bride will be released spring 2019 on Columbia Records. 


In other news, congratulations are due to Vampire Weekend and XL Recordings on the band's eponymous debut album being certified Platinum by the RIAA for U.S. sales in excess of 1,000,000.

The first band to grace the cover of SPIN magazine before an album was even released, Koenig, Baio, Tomson and former member Rostam Batmanglij met in 2005 at Columbia University in New York City.  “Even without an album, Vampire Weekend has made one of the year’s most impressive debuts,” said The New York Times of the band’s earliest recordings.

The accolades continued through the album's release, as Vampire Weekend appeared on 2008 Top 10 lists of Time, NPR, Rolling Stone, New York Magazine, Pitchfork and countless others, as well as winning the NME award for “Best New American Indie/Alternative Band." The band also made its first of three appearances on Saturday Night Live, as well as debut performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. 

Since their debut, Vampire Weekend have released two additional albums, both of which debuted at #1 and have been certified Gold in the U.S.: 2010’s GRAMMY-nominated Contra, and 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City, which won that year's GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album.

Amidst the tour, Shinedown will kick off a more intimate, limited run of shows in May entitled ‘An Evening With Shinedown,’ offering fans an exclusive, up-close-and-personal live experience.

PRESS HERE to watch Shinedown’s new video for their anthemic single “GET UP,” a collection of behind-the-scenes moments on tour and live footage from the road that gives an inside look into the powerful moments that “GET UP” is fostering between Shinedown and their fans. The uplifting #1 Active Rock and Top 25 Alternative hit has amassed more than 27 million total streams, galvanizing listeners around the globe with its offer of hope, empathy and encouragement in the face of personal struggles, whatever they may be. PRESS HERE to watch Shinedown’s recent performance of “GET UP” on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Garnering praise from the likes of Huffington Post, Salon, Rolling Stone, Consequence of Sound, Buzzfeed, Parade, Grammy.com, No Depression and more with key playlisting on Spotify and Apple Music, the powerful song speaks to the human spirit in a time of need, something that front man Brent Smith is deeply connected to after battling his own personal demons. “GET UP” became a light in the darkness, born out of Brent watching his friend, Shinedown bassist Eric Bass, deal with clinical depression.

Shinedown’s chart-topping album ATTENTION ATTENTION (PRESS HERE to listen), out now via Atlantic Records, simultaneously hit #1 on Billboard’s Alternative, Top Rock and Hard Rock Albums Charts and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard 200. The story that unfolds as the album progresses is a poignant and enduring statement about humanity, touching on topics such as overcoming struggles, mental health, not being afraid to fail and the resolve of the human spirit as seen on tracks like "DEVIL," and the anthemic "THE HUMAN RADIO". Given the deeply personal nature of the record, Shinedown went in-house for production for the first time ever, enlisting bassist Eric Bass to produce and mix the album in its entirety. 

 

Shinedown - Brent Smith [vocals], Zach Myers [guitar], Eric Bass [bass, production], and Barry Kerch [drums] – has sold more than 10 million albums and 10 million singles worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums, and 14 #1 active rock hits, and more than 1.5 billion total overall streams to date. Each of Shinedown's 24 charting singles on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs Chart has reached the top five – an unparalleled feat.
