Particle Transforms This Spring!
Shout Factory DVD & Appearances At SXSW & Joshua Tree Music Festival Confirmed
Particle is poised to return to the stage this spring with a fresh lineup, new material, a tour, and a DVD. The bands first live performance of the New Year will be on Friday February 24 at the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood. Billed as "Particle: Transformations," the show will be filmed for a DVD to be released this summer and will feature an array of special guests. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday January 14 at 10 a.m., and are available online at www.goldenvoice.com. Additional information about the evening's festivities and guests will follow over the next few weeks.
Particle is excited to announce it's signing with Shout! Factory, who will release the Particle: Transformations DVD nationwide. Produced by Captured Live Productions, it will be the bands debut DVD, and a follow-up to 2004's Launchpad released by Or Music.
The band enjoyed a stellar year in 2005 both home and abroad, balancing performances at Bonnaroo, Summerfest, New Orleans Jazzfest, and Wakarusa with return trips to England and the Netherlands. Last year also saw Particle teaming up with The Grateful Dead's Mickey Hart to form Hydra for a national tour. After parting ways with guitar player Charlie Hitchcock, the band has been focusing on writing new material, auditioning guitar players, and preparing for the next phase in their evolution.
They will mount their spring tour and return to road warrior status with an appearance at South by Southwest before traversing the country for the better part of April. Particle has also confirmed that they will headline the Joshua Tree Music Festival this May in Southern California.
Stay tuned for more tour updates in the coming weeks.
