GROUPLOVE RELEASE “GOOD MORNING”
MUSIC VIDEO FEATURING ELLE FANNING
BAND ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL US DATES
ON BIG MESS WORLD TOUR
November 15, 2016 – (Los Angeles, CA) – Grouplove today shared a music video for “Good Morning”, the latest single off their critically acclaimed third album Big Mess. Entertainment Weekly premiered the video, praising “the clip is everything fans have come to expect from the indie rock group – bright colors, high energy, a trippy premise, and a whole lot of fun.” The neo-noir drive through Los Angeles’s Chinatown features actress Elle Fanning (Super 8, Maleficent, The Neon Demon) and was directed by Christopher Blauvelt. Watch it HERE. Big Mess is available digitally HERE and physically HERE now via Canvasback Music/Atlantic Records.
This morning, Grouplove also announced an additional US leg of their Big Mess World Tour that kicks off on January 30, 2017 in Knoxville, TN and wraps on April 13, 2017 in Santa Cruz, CA. A complete list of upcoming tour dates and ticket information can be found HERE.
Earlier this month, Grouplove shared an EP of remixes of the album’s lead single, “Welcome To Your Life”. Featuring contributions from Gigamesh, Taylor Wise, Sweekuh, and Lucas Nord, the EP is available now via the band’s Soundcloud and digital services. “Welcome To Your Life” recently entered the Top 10 of the Modern Rock/Alternative Radio Chart at No. 7. Upon its release this past June, the track was the No. 1 most added song at alternative radio for three consecutive weeks.
Grouplove recently gave fans an immersive live performance of “Welcome To Your Life” filmed with Facebook’s Surround 360 camera technology, which captured a fully spherical, high-resolution view of the moment. The 3D-360 experience brings viewers as close as they can get to a live Grouplove performance without actually having tickets to a front-row seat. The innovative music video, which was premiered on Facebook, can be seen 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 choruses and infectious hooks that first brought the Los Angeles quintet to prominence. No stranger to the worldwide festival circuit, Grouplove has made an album that showcases their richly narrated songs.
To celebrate the release of Big Mess, Grouplove hosted a fan-generated music video contest through Genero.tv. The band is currently selecting its favorite submission for each track on the album and is rewarding $3,000 to each of the 11 winners. Having already chosen several winners, Grouplove will share the remaining selections biweekly HERE.

Grouplove first came together in 2009 and were quickly hailed for their standout live performances, both as headliners and at such international festivals as Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Reading + Leeds Festivals, and Glastonbury. A year after releasing a self-titled EP in 2010, the band returned with their debut full length “NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG” featuring a trio of breakout singles – “Colours,” “Itchin’ On A Photograph,” and the RIAA-certified platinum hit “Tongue Tied” which spent 3 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Alternative radio chart. The quintet’s second full length album – 2013’s “SPREADING RUMOURS” – was met with a raft of acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NYLON, and National Public Radio who called it “ludicrously easy to love.” As with all of Grouplove’s recorded material, the collection was produced by the band’s own Ryan Rabin, and was highlighted by singles “Ways To Go” and “Shark Attack.” In 2014, Grouplove contributed the original song “Let Me In” to “The Fault in Our Stars – Music From the Motion Picture,” the musical companion to the blockbuster film based on The New York Times bestseller. That same year, the band was tapped to create the theme song to the Netflix Original Series “BoJack Horseman.” Last year, vocalist/keyboardist Hannah Hooper collaborated with Volcom for a Lady Grouplove capsule collection of clothing inspired by her personal style and artwork.
Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums), and Daniel Gleason (bass).
