A highlight from the trio’s headline shows at Ultra Miami and Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas this year, ‘Tightrope’ looks like a return to the heartfelt songwriting that has won Jono, Tony and Paavo (Above & Beyond) many fans around the world. 2017 has already been a good year for the band, with the release of ‘Alright Now’ (alongside longtime collaborator Justine Suissa), ‘1001’, the brooding ‘Balearic Balls’ and piano-led ambient moment ‘Surge’, lifted from the ‘Inspired By The Ghost In The Shell’ soundtrack.
With heartfelt lyrics penned by Tony McGuinness and plaintive vocalist Marty Longstaff (singer-songwriter from UK band ’The Lake Poets’), 'Tightrope’ is a soaring yet bitter entreaty for hope and direction in trying times. Debuted during a recent tour of India, the track proved to be popular with fans.
Above & Beyond will soon host the 250th episode of their radio show Group Therapy live from The Gorge Amphitheatre, Washington State. The two day event should see 25,000 fans descend on The Gorge for a showcase of the band’s Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep imprints, broadcasting live worldwide online and over FM radio.
Just days before fans from over 40 countries around the world converge on Seattle for ABGT250, Above & Beyond play a sold-out Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, adding another world famous venue to the band’s headline slots which already include The Hollywood Bowl, Madison Square Garden, Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall, Alexandra Palace, London and Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome.
