Since returning to the stage after a two-year hiatus, Athens, GA-based rockers Perpetual Groove have been on a tear. In their time back, the group has proved time and again why they are considered one of the elite jam bands in the scene. It’s hard to believe that the band hasn’t released a proper studio album in seven years. However, the time has finally come, and Perpetual Groove has just announced a Kickstarter campaign to get their new album in motion. As told by the Kickstarter campaign, P-Groove plans on releasing the new album on vinyl—a first for the group. In addition to receiving digital and vinyl copies of the latest album from the band, backers of the Kickstarter campaign are also eligible to snag album artwork posters, t-shirts, hoodies, hats, tickets to shows, VIP Experiences, a Golden Ticket to all shows on the tour, and more.
Paired with the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, Perpetual Groove released a full statement, about their upcoming recording endeavor as well as a new video titled “The Joy of Recording with Brock Ross.” You can read the statement and watch the video below. Plus, don’t miss Perpetual Groove live and in action when the band returns to New York City on the heels of their sold-out Phish late-night show at B.B. King’s back in July. P. Groove will hit the Brooklyn Bowl this weekend on Friday, September 8th, and Saturday, September 9th, for a two-night run also featuring Tropidelic and Broccoli Samurai (9/8) and Trae Pierce & the T-Stones and Broccoli Samurai (9/9), with tickets available via Brooklyn Bowl website.
Be a part of Perpetual Groove history!
It’s been seven years since Perpetual Groove released a full-length album. We’ve never been able to release an album on vinyl. Now is the time to remedy both of these issues and we want YOU to join us in the process of doing it! Perpetual Groove has always been for the people BY the people. You have supported us from day one and now we have an entire stack of never-before heard tunes and some road tested gems that must make their way to the studio!
With the support from all of you and this Kickstarter campaign, we’ll be able to release an album in a way we have never done before. We’ll be making videos of the process to share with you along the way, and will finally be able to release a vinyl recording for the first time ever!
We’ve got tons of great rewards for all of our backers…and if you aren’t able to pledge right now simply sharing this post with your friends would still be a huge help. Plus it’ll let more people experience “the Joy of Recording with Brock Ross.”
Sincerely, Adam, Albert, Brock, and Matt – Perpetual Groove
