“We live to play.   In our minds everything we do – writing, recording, interviews, appearances – is the means to the live end. To fully and totally understand our band, you have to see us live.  It’s the three of us in our element, our living room, our therapy session, our recess. We can’t wait to bring WE ARE PIONEERS to the world, ” says Kimberly Perry.
Throughout the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR, The Band Perry will debut an entirely new show, including a new set, sound, lights and even a few new tricks.  On the run of European dates, various local acts will be in the support slot on the tour, and starting on January 9th Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will join The Band Perry on the North American dates for what is sure to be one of the most sought after tickets of the touring season. At the end of a Band Perry show, audiences walk out with smiles on their faces, knowing that the band left nothing to the imagination – the family trio pour every bit of themselves into their shows.   See a list of dates below, with more to be added in the coming weeks.
No strangers to life on the road, The Band Perry have been on tour approximately 850 of the last 915 days, captivating audiences not only in the United States, but also in Australia, Canada and Europe.  This summer alone, The Band Perry shattered attendance records at multiple arenas across North America and have played to over half a million people, no simple feat for a band on just its second album.
“Marching forward and making noise together. That’s what a Band Perry show is all about. There are these moments that we’ve built into the show when the three of us and our band are like an army or a marching band.  Us, our band, and the crowd – it’s like we’re a team, and we’re all in it together.  We are very fortunate that we get to walk on stage and do what we love to do – and it’s our fans that have given us that opportunity.  We sincerely appreciate each and every one of them, and we are looking forward to meeting new people across the world and making The Fans Perry a global community,” says Reid Perry.
“We believe pioneers are everywhere. Big and small, young and old, on North-American shores and abroad – we are coming to find you!” says Neil Perry.

ABOUT THE BAND PERRY:  Since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights. Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Reid and Neil, the band has notched a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum “If I Die Young” (which climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Country and AC charts), the platinum “You Lie,” and the gold-certified Country #1 “All Your Life” as well as the consecutive #1 hits, “Better Dig Two” and “DONE.” (co-written by Reid and Neil) from their sophomore release PIONEER, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. Produced by Dann Huff, PIONEER sold nearly 130,000 copies in the first week and has received acclaim from top critics across the country. They’ve also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and a showering of honors, including multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music awards, as well as Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, Billboard Music Award and Grammy award nominations — all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history. They have taken over the American television airwaves with unforgettable performances on the ACM Awards, The Billboard Music Awards, American Idol, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Ellen, The Talk, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Late Show with David Letterman.



Mercury Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin is lauded for his traditional country sound, authentic lyrics and mastery of understatement. His self-titled debut album released in 2010 and spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It;” making him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1. That same year the Gilchrist County Florida native won all of the Breakthrough Artist awards at the American Country Awards – Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist, Single of the Year: Breakthrough Artist and Music Video: Breakthrough Artist for “A Little More Country Than That.”  Billboard named Corbin as the Top New Country Artist of 2010.  Easton’s current single, “All Over The Road,”  is in the Top 10 on the country airplay charts and is from his current album by the same name.

Originally from Calgary, Alberta, Lindsay Ell started playing piano at 6, guitar at 8 and singing in her church youth group at 10 (“the most forgiving audience ever”).  She was discovered at 13 by fellow Canadian Randy Bachman of BTO and The Guess Who (“American Woman,” “Takin’ Care Of Business”). “Randy learned guitar from master jazz guitarist Lenny Breau, so I dove head-first into this world of blues, jazz and rock guitar – learning all these different solos, switching radio stations and trying to get an idea of where all those techniques come from. I was listening to Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clapton, Derek Trucks and all those incredible guitar players.”  Lindsay’s passion and study served her well,leading to several unique opportunities including an opening slot with blues icon Buddy Guy.  Her first songwriting trip to Nashville was the catalyst that brought her early affinity for country full-circle.  Because it is rare, she knows her six-string prowess could be overshadowing. “There aren’t a lot of girls who play electric lead guitar, and it can be a defining thing,” she says. “Any day I don’t play guitar is not a good day, but it isn’t the only thing. And it’s certainly not shtick. First and foremost, I want people to hear me and understand my voice as a country music recording artist. When they come see me, I’d love it if they’re impressed at my guitar and piano playing. But by that point, hopefully they understand the artist behind it all has a lot of different sides to her music.”  Lindsay’s debut single from Stoney Creek Records is due this fall.
