Los Angeles, CA, May 22, 2015 – Los Angeles piano-driven rock band The Crash Kings debut their new single, “You Keep Me Runnin’,” with Diffuser.fm. Listen and share the new track here: www.http://diffuser.fm/the-crash-kings-you-keep-me-runnin-song-premiere/
“I wrote ‘You Keep Me Runnin” about a guy I knew who was constantly chasing the next best thing,” says The Crash Kings frontman Tony Beliveau. “When I took a step back I realized how insane it all was. Whether it was the next girl, or the next high, it was just never enough for him. It was hard to tell if he was just unhappy or if it was the chase itself he was in love with. Either way, it kept him running.”
The Crash Kings — founding members and brothers Antonio Beliveau (piano, vocals) and Michael Beliveau (bass) and Tommy Rose (drums) — continue to innovate at every turn. Famous for analog keyboard and Clavinet/whammy-bar wizardry, the group has performed everywhere from Jimmy Kimmel Live! to George Lopez Tonight, as well as touring with Stone Temple Pilots, Chris Cornell, Anberlin, Jet, David Cook, and more. After being discovered and signed to Motown Records by Linda Perry in 2010, their debut single, “Mountain Man,” shot to the top of the Billboard charts, where it held the Number 1 position for three consecutive weeks. The music video has almost 1.5 million views. The band got lost within the label system when trying to release their second album during the EMI and Universal merger. After trying to salvage what the band already set up, letting their deal take its course, the momentum was lost. The band prioritized and three years later are back and ready to release new music with their new drummer.
The Crash Kings will take over The Satellite in June for a month-long residency. Setting up shop at the iconic Silverlake venue, the trio will perform five free headlining shows on June 1, June 8, June 15, June 22, and June 29. Doors open at 8 p.m., while the band hits the stage at 11 p.m.
In addition to giving audiences an unforgettable evening, the gigs will comprise their forthcoming Live at The Satellite compilation. Engaging their audience further, fans are encouraged to sign up at the merch table in order to receive two free live downloads every week. At the residency’s conclusion, the group plans to compile the ten tracks into a live package along with their five-song Live Nudes EP, which they recently released through a PledgeMusic campaign.
The residency also gives fans the opportunity to hear some of The Crash Kings’ new material from their third full-length album, which is due later this year.
