The Fans Perry might get a pretty good idea of what the next Band Perry sound will be by the time the group arrives at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Through a series of social media posts, the sibling trio dubbed Monday (Aug. 1) its official comeback day and a big announcement from Nashville is expected that evening.
The curious thing is that all Twitter and Instagram activity @thebandperry before Tuesday (July 26) has been completely deleted. On Facebook, the band’s current genre status says, “Country” and followers can stalk all they want for posts well preceding March, 2016.
After parting from its original label home, Big Machine’s Republic Nashville, it was announced in May that the band entered into a new record deal with Universal Music Group in partnership with Interscope Records – home to several music superstars including Madonna, U2, Dr. Dre and American Idol’s Lauren Alaina.
According to Billboard, the band has been in the studio working on a third full length album, which will include material the group had under its deal with Republic Nashville. Last fall, the band revealed they had worked with dance-pop producers Diplo and RedOne for the new project.
Whatever the big announcement is, the Fans Perry seem ready for what the Band Perry has in store. The group’s fan club party at the 2016 CMA Music Festival sold out in 60 seconds. Their summer tour continues Saturday (July 30) in Cold Spring, Minnesota. Then it’s back to Nashville for Monday’s (Aug. 1) announcement and off to Rio where “Live Forever” is the official song of Team U.S.A.
The 2016 Olympiad will be the Band Perry’s first visit to the Olympic games.
