Grouplove Announce Third Album, Big Mess, To Be Released on September 9th by Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records‏

Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording artists Grouplove will release their highly anticipated third studio album, entitled Big Mess, on September 9th. The first single, “Welcome To Your Life,” will be released on July 15th. Watch a trailer for the album, which previews four new songs HERE.

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 anthemic choruses and infectious hooks that first brought the Los Angeles quintet to prominence through hits like “Tongue Tied,” “Colours,” and “Ways To Go.” No stranger to the worldwide festival circuit, Grouplove has made an album that brilliantly showcases their richly narrated songs with elaborate production.

“We made this album at an important crossroads in our lives, and it was a dream come true to be able to work with Phil Ek up in Seattle and with Ryan down in LA. We’re extremely excited for the world to hear it!” offered singer/guitarist Christian Zucconi.

This fall, Grouplove will hit the road for their Big Mess World Tour. 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.
