Death Cab for Cutie is an American alternative rock band formed in Bellingham, Washington in 1997. The band is composed of Ben Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr, Dave Depper, and Zac Rae. Death Cab for Cutie rose from being a side project to becoming one of the most exciting groups emerge from the indie rock scene of the ’00s. They have been nominated for eight Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Album for their 2015 release, Kintsugi. Their ninth studio album Thank You for Today was released on August 17, 2018.

“For a band in its third decade… Death Cab hasn't lost its gift for pairing Gibbard's soft ruminations with propulsive arrangements that know just when to sparkle and sway. But even more importantly, Gibbard himself still sings with a sense of purpose, keenly articulating a distinct swirl of nostalgia, loss and hope for new beginnings.” — NPR Music

GRiZ US Ride Waves Tour: Season One

GRiZ will play Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh on Saturday, May 4. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday January 25 and will be available via livenation.com, the Duke Energy Center Box Office, Ticketmaster, and by phone at 800-745-3000.

Every time GRiZ puts his mind to something, it’s a moment. It’s a fleshed out idea, a fruit of commitment and passion, not an idea thrown at a wall and moved on from. Today, multi-instrumentalist, artist, producer, philanthropist and LGBTQ advocate, GRiZ, announces his sixth studio album, Ride Waves, along with a US headline tour, and releases a new single, “I’m Good.

Ride Waves is the culmination of the last two years for GRiZ––a period pillared by his own creative exile, high impact socio-cultural issues, and a slew of communities and relationships in which he has embedded himself. 

The 14-track LP sees Grant being immersed into the environments that have inspired his carefully curated sound. He tapped hip-hop favorites like Wiz Khalifa on “Find My Own Way,” and DRAM for “It Gets Better.” His sonic journey touched down in New York’s urban core to record with the Harlem Gospel Choir, stepped into Chicago’s South Side to collaborate with Chicago Children’s Choir, and spanned across many sessions in New Orleans. Snoop Dogg even sent in a verse from his studio in Long Beach. 

There’s truly something for everybody in the record. Each song tips a hat to Grant’s personality, and many parts of this represent moments of reflection. GRiZ and Matisyahu were in the studio just days after February’s Parkland shooting, and a song about gun violence, “A New Day,” became of it. The album parallels Grant’s core as a human; it’s about love and a need for peace. It’s just another piece to the puzzle that represents GRiZ becoming the positive force that mainstream electronic and popular culture need.

Ride Waves will be paired with a US album tour titled Ride Waves Tour: Season One, which kicks off in March and will be touching down in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, St. Augustine, Minneapolis, and more. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, January 25th at 10am local time at mynameisgriz.com. He will also be performing at a number of festivals this year including New Orleans Buku Music & Arts Project, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and more.

A typical response for many listeners first hearing the hard-charging and harder-hitting rock of Greta Van Fleet may be to wonder what decade, exactly, produced these sounds. After all, songs like "Highway Tune" and "When the Curtain Falls" are so steeped in the stadium-ready sounds of the Who and Led Zeppelin at their mightiest and most muscular, it's hard to believe that they're actually the handiwork of three brothers from Frankenmuth, Michigan, whose birth dates coincide with the heyday of NSYNC and Britney Spears.

The second response, however, is not to care about any minor details of how, when, and why. What matters is the stunning ability of Greta Van Fleet to not only channel the majesty of rock gods of yesteryear but demonstrate that music's potency in the present. It's no wonder they've made a huge fan of Robert Plant — "They are ‘Led Zeppelin I,'" the singer said about these newcomers. Another admirer, Elton John, asked them to play his Academy Awards party in 2018. "They have an amazing future ahead of them," he told the assembled celebrities.

That seems like an understatement given the excitement already generated by Greta Van Fleet's uncommonly powerful live shows and a set of original songs that demonstrate the potential of the three Kiszka brothers — singer Josh, his twin brother Jake on guitar, and youngest brother Sam on bass and keyboards — and drummer Danny Wagner. "Highway Tune" and "Safari Song" both topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock singles charts in 2017, fueling further interest in the band's first two EPs, ‘Black Smoke Rising' and ‘From the Fires.' Yet for all their love of classic rock, their covers of songs by Sam Cooke and Fairport Convention prove their tastes extend beyond the confines of the genre.

Released in October 2018, Greta Van Fleet's debut full-length album ‘Anthem of the Peaceful Army' is further evidence that the Kiszkas are no retro simulation of a bygone rock golden age but a kick-ass band that's very much for the here and now.

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%.

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.
