GIVERS Debut Album In Lights Out Today

GIVERS’ debut album – In Light – is out today on Glassnote Entertainment Group. The Lafayette, Louisiana-based five-piece are nothing short of ebullient, tying together ecstatic ribbons of melodies into songs that leave you no choice but to smile upon hearing them. In listening to In Light, it’s easy to hear what propelled the band so quickly. The album is adventurous- a blend of sultry Afro-pop, heavy percussion, spangling guitars and downright danceability. This debut is the most rewarding and joyous album you’ll hear all year. Live, GIVERS are all energy and spark – having opened for the likes of The Dirty Projectors and Ra Ra Riot, their live set is a perfectly honed showing of dizzying energy and jubilant melodies. The band has been named the ‘Best of What’s Next’ by PASTE Magazine and a ‘Band to Watch’ by Stereogum, They performed at this year’s SXSW, Sasquatch and will even be taking on the Bonnaroo Music Festival. The band is also currently touring from coast to coast. Tour dates are posted below.

Praise for GIVERS:
“Givers’ five members, three of whom sing and two of whom wield percussion at any given moment, are known for swapping roles with ease. Due out June 7, In Light reflects that knockabout, anything-goes vibe, just in time for the season that suits it best.” – NPR.org

“[GIVERS] use a myriad of instruments to create lush, magical Afro-pop gems soaked in irrepressible joy.” – Nylon

“Just try not to smile or dance (or both) when GIVERS sing…I bet you can’t. These five young musicians from Lafayette, LA, are, as their name says, givers. And what they give is bubbly, fun and energetic while showing some serious musical chops.” – Time.com “Ten Bands that Rocked SXSW 2011”
