To kick off the album's release, the band are launching a Pledge Music (http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/live) campaign today (8-28-14) with a portion of the proceeds going to Musicians On Call. PledgeMusic is the world's leading online, direct-to-fan music community, offering artists a unique way to engage their fans in the music making experience whilst interacting with PledgeMusic's global community of music fans. Details of the album's first single and video, along with U.S. and international tour dates will be released thru Pledge and +LIVE's+ social media platforms over the next few weeks.
In describing the simple process of Shinn joining the group, Chad Taylor said we knew we needed, "a veteran artist that brought a new dimension of musical skill and credibility to the table. The only name suggested by all three of us was Chris Shinn. There was no audition process. We simply called our friend and asked if he wanted to make +LIVE+ music."
The release of the album will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the group's eight-million selling Throwing Copper. That album produced the band's biggest single, "Lightning Crashes," which was #1 at Modern Rock radio for 10 consecutive weeks. With two #1 albums already under their belt and more than 20 million albums sold worldwide, +LIVE+ are ready to enter the next chapter of their career.
Additional details re the band's upcoming world tour will be revealed in the coming weeks.
