Grouplove Announce Slate of National Television Appearances

LA-Based Quintet Set to Perform Hit Single "Tongue Tied" on NBC's Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Today; Band Hits Bonnaroo This Weekend Followed by Sold Out Headlining Shows in Philly, DC, and NYC

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Canvasback Music/Atlantic recording artists Grouplove have unveiled a slate of high profile national television appearances. The Los Angeles based band will be performing their hit single "Tongue Tied" on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on June 19th and Today on July 9th.

Featured on the band's critically acclaimed debut album "NEVER TRUST A HAPPY SONG," "Tongue Tied" is currently #3 at Alternative Radio and beginning its ascent up the CHR/Top 40 and Billboard Hot 100 charts. "Tongue Tied" was an early favorite of NPR's All Songs Considered and is heralded as one of the "Greatest Songs of Summer" in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly. Last month, the cast of FOX's "Glee" performed a memorable cover of "Tongue Tied" during the hit series' May 15th episode. Earlier this year, Grouplove delivered a raucous performance of the song on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, following previous late night television appearances on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, NBC's Last Call with Carson Daly, and TBS' CONAN. "Tongue Tied" appeared in a wildly popular Apple iPod Touch commercial late last year to kick off the song's campaign.

Grouplove is currently in the midst of a sold-out North American headlining tour that has also featured stops at some of the year's biggest music gatherings, including the Coachella Music and Arts Festival and Sasquatch Music Festival. The band performs at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on June 10th, followed by their remaining headline shows at Philadelphia's Theater of Living Arts on June 11th, New York City's Webster Hall on June 12th, and Washington DC's 930 Club on June 13th. The band will continue to perform at various music festivals and radio shows throughout summer, before joining Mumford & Sons for their "Gentlemen of the Road" Stopover in Monterey, CA, on August 25 (see itinerary below).

Grouplove is: Christian Zucconi (vocals, guitar), Hannah Hooper (vocals, keys), Sean Gadd (bass, vocals), Andrew Wessen (guitar, vocals), Ryan Rabin (drums)
