NASHVILLE, TN (August 6, 2015) – GRAMMY® Award-winning superstar sibling trio – THE BAND PERRY – will release their roaring new anthem “Live Forever” on Friday, August 14. The track, produced by RedOne and Dann Huff, is the first taste of new music from The Band Perry’s forthcoming album due for release later this fall by Big Machine Label Group. “Live Forever” will debut on Country radio nationwide on August 14 and will be available for purchase the same day at all digital retailers.
“’Live Forever’ is the best first look into our new album,” said Kimberly Perry. “It emotionally sums up everything we've been feeling creating this new collection of songs – empowered and electrified.”
“Every time I hear the chorus of ‘Live Forever,’ I can't help but put my hands up in the air,” said Reid Perry. “It's one of those songs that, after listening to it, makes you feel like you can conquer the world.”
“I can’t wait for people to hear and learn the words to ‘Live Forever,’” said Neil Perry. “It's such an anthemic song, and I know it's going to be a huge sing-a-long moment for us with the fans at our shows!”
The Band Perry will perform “Live Forever” for the first time on national television - as well as other fan favorites - on Friday, August 14 when they make their first-ever appearance at Central Park’s famed SummerStage in Rumsey Playfield as part of Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series. Good Morning America is broadcast live on ABC from 7-9AM EST / PST. Check local listings. The concert is free and open to the public. Viewers interested in joining "GMA" in Central Park are encouraged to arrive at Rumsey Playfield via the 72nd street entrance on Fifth Avenue at 6AM EST when the park opens to the public.
“We can’t wait to wake up early with our fans and play our new single live on Good Morning America,” added The Band Perry. “We love to play live, and in true Band Perry fashion, plan to make this equally memorable for everyone in the park AND those watching at home.”
iHeartMedia will host a World Premiere event to introduce "Live Forever" to music fans across the US beginning August 14 on iHeartMedia Country radio stations and on iHeartRadio.com.
The music video for “Live Forever” will make its world broadcast premiere on CMT for 48-hours starting Saturday, August 15 on CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown, CMT Artists App and CMT.com. It will air every hour on the hour on the network and every other hour on CMT Pure Country. The video was directed by Collin Tilley and features both narrative and performance by the all-American band in a new and unique performance space called THE CUBE.
THE CUBE is an immersive, mobile musical performance space with walls made of huge rear-projection screens that bear kinetic visuals. Debuted at The Band Perry’s fan club party at this past June, fans enter into THE CUBE and are placed right inside the music's energy while The Band Perry performs for them on a centralized stage, in face-to-face proximity with the crowd. Everyone inside THE CUBE is completely surrounded by filmed visuals, light, and music.

ABOUT THE BAND PERRY: Grammy® Award-winning sibling trio The Band Perry have proven an unstoppable presence in music, matching their major critical acclaim with massive mainstream success. Within just years of making their platinum-selling self-titled debut, frontwoman Kimberly Perry and her brothers Reid and Neil have already shown the history-defying power of their colossal appeal, playing sold out shows around the world.
Along with introducing the group as a dynamic new force in music, 2010's The Band Perry delivered five hit singles: the sextuple-platinum chart-topper "If I Die Young" (whose video's now Vevo-certified for reaching 100 million plays), the platinum-selling "You Lie" and "All Your Life" (a #1 single), "Hip to My Heart," and the gold-certified "Postcard from Paris." For their gold-certified 2013 follow-up Pioneer, The Band Perry delved deeper into an edgy, rock-and-roll-inspired sound while staying true to their Southern roots, offering up the platinum-selling #1 singles "Better Dig Two" and "DONE." (a first for Reid and Neil as songwriters) as well as smash hits "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" and "Chainsaw." Kicking off the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR in late 2013, the trio quickly established themselves as an incendiary live act and global powerhouse, playing hundreds of venues from Seattle to Sweden.
Throughout 2014, The Band Perry built on that momentum by making appearances on major TV and award shows, became ACM Vocal Group of the Year, picked up a CMT Award for their "DONE." video, and marked their first USO tour stop with a performance for American troops at Royal Air Force Lakenheath in the United Kingdom. Later in the year, The Band Perry released a spirited rendition of country legend Glen Campbell's "Gentle On My Mind" (featured on the soundtrack to the James Keach-directed documentary Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me) and - in February 2015 - won the Grammy® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Having also earned multiple awards from the likes of The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the Academy of Country Music, The Band Perry have received multiple nominations from the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People's Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, and The American Country Countdown Awards as well.
With their recent honors including being named ambassadors for Teen Cancer America (a charity founded by The Who's Roger Daltrey), The Band Perry are currently gearing up for the release of their third studio album. For tour dates and more on TBP, visit www.TheBandPerry.com.
