with special guests A Great Big World & Andy Grammer
99.5 The River's "Fall Night In" Concert
To celebrate the release of their fourth album Helios (out now on Epic Records), THE FRAY is embarking on a nationwide tour including a special stop in Albany on September 9 as part of 99.5 The River's "Fall Night In" concert featuring special guests A GREAT BIG WORLD & ANDY GRAMMER.
The latest track off the new record "Break Your Plans" is streaming now at VEVO: http://bit.ly/1pGh8F1. Of the track, Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) notes, "We wanted to capture the moment right before a couple parts ways, where everything is pointing to the split, and one of them suddenly gets this fire—almost out of nowhere. Maybe it's the feeling of the other just starting to leave, maybe it's a moment-in-time but suddenly there's fight left, and they go for it."
The Fray is Slade, Joe King (guitar, vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar), and Ben Wysocki (drums). The Denver-based group formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. The Fray achieved national success with their 2005 debut featuring the hit singles "Over My Head (Cable Car)" and "How to Save a Life," which went double-platinum. The band also earned a 2010 Grammy nomination for their self-titled release.
A Great Big World is the musical duo of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino. Best known for their hit singles "This is the New Year" which found mainstream success thanks to the tv show Glee and "Say Something" which featured Christina Aguilera. They are currently on tour in support of their album "Is There Anybody Out There?"
Andy Grammer's single "Keep Your head Up" was a huge hit and recently released the new single "Back Home" off his forthcoming album.
