The Band Perry Address Speculations About Their Future
The Band Perry fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief: The sibling trio isn’t going anywhere.
TBP’s pop-heavy single “Live Forever” didn’t fare particularly well at country radio following its August release, and on Thursday evening (Feb. 11), the song was briefly pulled from digital outlets. Coupled with the lack of news about the group’s previously announced new album, Heart + Beat, the disappearance of “Live Forever” had fans fearing the worst. So, in a video posted to Facebook on Friday night (Feb. 12), the Perry siblings set the record straight.
“”Live Forever” was pulled from iTunes, YouTube, Vevo, everything, for about 24 hours,” Kimberly Perry confirms — but it wasn’t necessarily for a scary reason. “Team TBP was doing a little bit of housekeeping and re-organization, but we were just told that it’s back up on iTunes. Team TBP has told us that it will be back up on Vevo and YouTube in the next couple days.”
Then, Kimberly Perry and her brothers, Neil and Reid Perry, addressed the breakup rumors head on: “… The Band Perry is not going anywhere. We are here to stay. Our music is here to stay.
“I need everybody take a deep breath in … take a deep breath out,” Kimberly Perry adds, adding some levity to the situation.
“… We want you guys to just rest easy,” she continues. “If you were all here right now, we would love to cuddle you in our arms because you, our fans, mean the whole world to us.”
TBP also dropped some good news: “great news” is coming soon.
“… We’re very excited, and we can’t wait to talk about it with you,” Kimberly Perry concludes. “Every decision that we make is for you guys. It’s all about getting this music to you as quickly as possible and as excellently as possible.”
