It’s a big week for The Band Perry. Their sophomore album, Pioneer, hit stores Tuesday and they will be in Las Vegas to perform as part of the ACM Party for a Cause Festival to benefit Outnumber Hunger on Friday night. They’ll attend the ACM Awards on Sunday, where they are nominated for Vocal Group of the Year. But they’re most excited about their new album.
“I think I just really want the fans to know that Pioneer has been the soundtrack of the last two years of our lives,” Kimberly Perry said. “It’s truly the things that we’ve been thinking about and living out in real time.”
The album also shows off a more aggressive side of the band. “One thing that specifically we wanted on this new album were more energetic drum beats, more aggressive beats, breaks, stops,” Neil Perry said. “So that’s one thing we focused on.”
As for their trip to Vegas, Neil Perry isn’t just excited about the ACM Awards. He’s finally 21 and can participate in everything Vegas has to offer. “I have many rolls of pennies that I will be taking with me for the penny slots,” he said. “I’m going to start out kind of small and then I’ll go up to maybe the quarter slots.”
