Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording artists Grouplove have unveiled a slate of high profile national television appearances. The Los Angeles based band will be performing their hit single â€œTongue Tiedâ€ on NBCâ€™s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on June 19th and Today on July 9th.
Featured on the bandâ€™s critically acclaimed debut album â€œNEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG,â€ â€œTongue Tiedâ€ is currently #3 at Alternative Radio and beginning its ascent up the CHR/Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 charts. â€œTongue Tiedâ€ was an early favorite of NPRâ€™s All Songs Considered and is heralded as one of the â€œGreatest Songs of Summerâ€ in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. Last month, the cast of FOXâ€™s â€œGleeâ€ performed a memorable cover of â€œTongue Tiedâ€ during the hit seriesâ€™ May 15th episode. Earlier this year, Grouplove delivered a raucous performance of the song on ABCâ€™s Jimmy Kimmel Live, following previous late night television appearances on CBSâ€™ Late Show with David Letterman, NBCâ€™s Last Call with Carson Daly, and TBSâ€™ CONAN. â€œTongue Tiedâ€ appeared in a wildly popular Apple iPod Touch commercial late last year to kick off the songâ€™s campaign.
Grouplove is currently in the midst of a sold-out North American headlining tour that has also featured stops at some of the yearâ€™s biggest music gatherings, including the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and Sasquatch Music Festival. The band performs at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on June 10th, followed by their remaining headline shows at Philadelphiaâ€™s Theater of Living Arts on June 11th, New York Cityâ€™s Webster Hall on June 12th, and Washington DCâ€™s 930 Club on June 13th. The band will continue to perform at various music festivals and radio shows throughout summer, before joining Mumford & Sons for their â€œGentlemen of the Roadâ€ Stopover in Monterey, CA, on August 25 (see attached itinerary).
Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Sean Gadd (bass, vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums)
