Grouplove gave fans an immersive live performance of “Welcome To Your Life” using groundbreaking 3D-360 technology which allows fans to move through the room and watch the band’s performance from the angle of their choosing. The video was filmed with Facebook’s Surround 360 camera technology, which captured a fully spherical, high-resolution view of the moment. The 3D-360 experience brings viewers as close as they can get to a live Grouplove performance without actually having tickets to a front-row seat. The innovative music video, which was premiered on Facebook on Friday, can be seen HERE.
Grouplove released their critically acclaimed third album Big Mess last month via Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records. The album is available digitally and physically now. The album’s lead single “Welcome To Your Life” just entered the Top 10 of the Modern Rock/Alternative Radio Chart at No. 9. Upon its release this past June, the track was the No. 1 most added song at alternative radio for three consecutive weeks. Recorded in Los Angeles and Seattle with producers Captain Cuts (Grouplove’s own Ryan Rabin) and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, The Shins), Big Mess features the signature choruses and infectious hooks that first brought the Los Angeles quintet to prominence. No stranger to the worldwide festival circuit, Grouplove has made an album that showcases their richly narrated songs.
To celebrate the release of Big Mess, Grouplove hosted a fan-generated music video contest through Genero.tv. The band is currently selecting its favorite submission for each track on the album and is rewarding $3,000 to each of the 11 winners. Having already chosen three winners, Grouplove will share the remaining eight selections once every two weeks starting today. Stay tuned for a new winner later today.
Grouplove was honored by the Recording Industry Association of America earlier this year when tracks “Colours” and “Ways To Go” were both certified as Gold Digital Singles for exceeding 500,000 units sold. Grouplove was previously honored by the RIAA when their breakout single “Tongue Tied” was certified platinum for exceeding 1,000,000 units sold. Grouplove is currently on the road for their Big Mess World Tour with support from Muna and Dilly Dally. One dollar for every ticket sold will be donated to the organization charity: water to help fund water projects like drilled wells, spring protections, and BioSand filters that help provide clean water to communities around the world.
