PGROOVE: LIVELOVEDIE

Perpetual Groove Releases LIVELOVEDIE, Their Latest Studio Effort Produced With Renewable Energy Making It The First Album To Be Produced Having Zero Negative Impact On Our Environment


Perpetual Groove
Perpetual Groove (PG) is taking a ground breaking, passionate approach to making music while leaving a positive impact on the environment, and setting an example for not just their fans, but the entertainment industry as a whole. PG is the first band to take extreme steps in making their products and business as environmentally friendly as possible. With LIVELOVEDIE (out March 6), their latest studio effort co-produced by Perpetual Groove and Grammy winner Robert Hannon (Outkast - Speakerboxxx/The Love Below), they have gone where no major labels hat yet. The album is the first to be produced using renewable energies from the recording all the way down to the manufacturing having zero negative impact on our environment. The packaging of the album is 100% made from recyclable materials – 50% post consumer waste and 50% postindustrial/manufacturing waste to using soy inks exclusively in the packaging. This all done through Perpetual Groove's partnership with Tree Sound Studios, Sustainable Waves, and Green Mountain Energy Company and is being released by the environmentally friendly label, Tree Leaf Music.

A celebrated, international touring act for over four years with an enormous on-line community message board of over 2,300 active members, Perpetual Groove has built a reputation on intense, emotional music that fans call "trance arena rock," and won over legions of fans with their experimentations in live 5.1 concert surround sound, an intense retina blinding light show, and a willingness to keep the connection strong between band and fans. The Athens, GA-based band's riveting live performances have catapulted them into the "must-see" category of live rock bands. With a funky blend of jazz-rock, neo-psychedelia, R&B, trance electronica, progressive rock and anthemic arena rock, the Bonnaroo veterans have conquered the festival circuit and continue to tour relentlessly.

"We are really excited to bring these new songs to our fans. We're the same band you have come to know and love, but like any good artist, we change. Where we are in our lives changes, so what we write about changes. Our songwriting has improved leaps and bounds since the last record," says Brock Butler, singer and guitar player for the band.

LIVELOVEDIE is a departure for the quartet. With a stronger focus on lyrics and song structure and a much heavier overall sound, the album is sure to surprise even the most die-hard of "PGroove" listeners. Perpetual Groove has shown a flair for creating genre-spanning music, yet keeps their catalog fresh and unique by constantly changing the material in the live setting.

The band will be touring internationally through 2007 to promote the release of LIVELOVEDIE. The tour kicks off with an appearance at The Langerado Music Festival in South Florida in early March 2007.

still think it was pretty WEAK to cancel their West Coast run for "media obligations" regarding the new album... Weak sauce, man....

Wouldn't it be more environmentally sound to just download it?

phishnerd, you make a great point. But for now the production of physical cd's will not stop so at least they're making an effort and proving it can be done in a conscious way. Can't wait to hear the disc, everything I've heard from these guys has been outstanding.

BORING to Trans for me!

PS if you are going to write a story about a new live album a few song titles might help.

I wish you left coast losers who keep crying about rescheduled dates would get some actual obligations and just fuck off. There coming back and those of you who are so patient will definitely get rewarded with solo sets, bustouts, and other things bands give payback with (although that's just my guess not a guarantee). There are bands who come down south not too often and I can't always go. However, I can accept that without bringing it up every article they have on here.

P Groove is crazy cool, they did like a 10 minute "Get down tonight" disco jam cover in Detroit earlier this year. It was great. Can't wait for the new album.

Anyone on the west coast, or the south should never complain about not getting enough dates from bands. Try living in northwest Ohio (the Toledo area). Very rarely do any really good acts come through my area, because they are always out west or down in the south. Be thankful, there are others who live where the music scene isn't quite as fortunate. And as for PGroove, they definitely took some major strides with the production of their latest CD; I commend them for that. I will pick it up, and will harm the environment in the process haha.

These guys can hang with the Biscuits musically(although no one can jam with Bisco IMO), and are way better at writing lyrics.
