Now, after selling two and a half million albums, ten million singles, and racking up over a billion spins on Pandora and over 600 million song streams on Spotify, the story of the sibling trio is evolving.

Since releasing their groundbreaking crossover #1 single “If I Die Young” in 2010 (with its current sextuple-platinum status and VEVO certification for 100 million video views), The Band Perry, have forged a unique, genre bending identity and built an international fan base leading to: sold-out world tours, five No. 1 Singles on the Billboard Country Chart, a No. 1 single on the Hot AC charts, six songs reaching gold or platinum status, and in 2015, brought home their first Grammy® Award. They’ve performed on TV’s biggest stages, from late-night’s most influential (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with Letterman) to daytime’s most popular (Ellen, Good Morning America, Today, The Talk), and their track “Live Forever” was the theme song for Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.

Recently partnering with Interscope Records, The Band Perry have announced the release of their highly-anticipated upcoming third album. It will be the trio’s first pop album, titled My Bad Imagination due out in Summer 2017. In February 2017 The Band Perry are introducing this newest musical era with their single “Stay In The Dark”.

Known for their boundary-pushing live performances, the band’s combination of music, fashion, and visual art has become a hallmark of their dialogue with their fans and with the industry. Their third effort boasts collaborations with creators such as Steven Klein, Nicola Formichetti, Jeff Bhasker, Jon Bellion, Benny Cassette, and Julia Michaels.  Even with the extraordinary musical and visual concepts they’ve introduced in their career thus far, this next era promises to see the band expanding their boundaries in these realms even further.
