The Band Perry to kick off North American tour in Penticton

According to The Band Perry's website they will be coming to Penticton on Jan. 9 to perform at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

Sibling trio The Band Perry are kicking off the North American portion of their worldwide tour in Penticton this January.

According to the band’s website they will be coming to Penticton on Jan. 9 to perform at the South Okanagan Events Centre. The website also states information on ticket sales will be coming soon.

Since releasing their self-titled debut album in 2010, The Band Perry have ascended to dizzying heights. Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has notched a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum If I Die Young (which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country and AC charts), the platinum You Lie, and the Country No. 1 All Your Life. They’ve also enjoyed sold-out tours and a showering of honours, including multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music awards, as well as Grammy, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, and Billboard Music award nominations.

With all the success, the trio felt as if they were walking into the unknown when it came time to write and record their second album, which they’ve called Pioneer.

“It reflects the idea of putting one foot in front of the other when you’re unsure how to get where you’re going. It’s about marching forward and making noise,” said Reid in a press release.

It’s the first recording the trio feels truly captures the full-throttle intensity of The Band Perry’s live show.

“Our first album was an honest representation of where we were at the time,” Kimberly said. “When we sat down to write songs, we had pictures in our head, and back then it was very romantic imagery, like ferris wheels at the county fair. This time our inspirational images were of armies and marching bands moving forward. It was very militaristic, and I think you can hear that in the melodies and the lyrics.”

Taken as a whole, Pioneer enables The Band Perry to accomplish one of its primary goals: to bring the romantic mystique of bands back to music — something they’ve dreamed of doing ever since forming the group in Mobile, Alabama, where the Perry kids moved with their parents after a childhood spent in Jackson, Mississippi.

Kimberly started her first band at age 15, with 10-year-old Reid and eight-year-old Neil observing every rehearsal from the sidelines.

The songs on Pioneer are tailor-made for arena shows.

Kimberly said to fully and totally understand the band, you have to see them live and they have set out to do just that having been on tour approximately 850 of the last 915 days shattering attendance records this summer at multiple arenas across North America.

Now they are taking their new album around the globe with the We Are Pioneers World Tour which will kick off in Sweden in November, crisscross Europe and jump back across the Atlantic to North America.

“We needed songs that could fill large spaces,” Kimberly said. “Our show is very aggressive; there are a lot of electric guitars and hard-hitting drums, and the music on Pioneer captures that.”

Her brother Neil agrees.

“Playing the new songs has given our live show a new burst of energy and the crowd feels it, too. They’re as excited to have new music as we are.”

Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will join The Band Perry on the North American leg of the tour. Corbin is lauded for his traditional country sound and authentic lyrics. Ell is from Calgary and was discovered by Randy Bachman of BTO and The Guess Who. Her debut single is due out this fall.
