SIDEWALK PROPHETS RELEASE NEW ALBUM, THE THINGS THAT GOT US HERE, TODAY, JULY 3, 2020
Performance From the Historic Ryman Auditorium Scheduled To Livestream on July 9, 2020
Nashville, Tenn. (July 3, 2020) – Curb | Word Entertainment’s Sidewalk Prophets release their highly-anticipated album, The Things That Got Us Here, today. Also in support of The Things That Got Us Here, the band is set to host a livestream performance event from the historic Ryman Auditorium on July 9, 2020. Joining the release of tracks “Smile,” “The Comment Section,” “Chosen,” “Real To Me,” and “Don’t Sweat It,” fans can find the entire The Things That Got Us Here album on all DSPs today. Listen to the album HERE.
“The Things That Got Us Here has taken on new meaning in our lives since the beginning of the year,” shares front man Dave Frey. “The world is faced with so many uncertainties and hardships, and so are each of our hearts. There are so many ‘things’ that have brought us all to this moment of our lives. We hope this album will be used to provide some joy and lasting hope for anyone that listens.”
The band will also turn their awaited historic sold-out Ryman Auditorium concert into a livestream-only event. Originally, Sidewalk Prophets invited their “Great Big Family” to experience the gift of an exclusive free album preview and live performance at one of Nashville’s most revered venues, but have made the event livestream-only due to social distancing rules and COVID-19 concerns. Though the plans for a live show have changed, the group is excited to have the opportunity to share this night with even more fans, as the livestream will allow those from all over the world to join in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. The show will stream via Facebook Live on July 9, 2020 at 7 PM CST.
In support of the release of The Things That Got Us Here, the band is in the middle of a “virtual tour.” Pioneering what a virtual livestream event looks like, the show includes 3D elements in which viewers wear 3D glasses, while still enjoying the show without them, and a complete high definition multimedia experience, setting new expectations for live show creativity. Every show is live, giving the same unique show-to-show experience as a live tour would.
