Yes, That’s Whiskey Shivers in the New ‘Pitch Perfect 3′ Trailer [WATCH]
Country music fans might see a familiar face or two in the newest trailer for Pitch Perfect 3: Bluegrass-punk group Whiskey Shivers make an appearance.
Readers can press play above to watch the newest Pitch Perfect 3 trailer, which gives fans their first look at Whiskey Shivers' role in the feature film. They're playing one of the bands selected to perform on an overseas USO Tour; on the trek, their group is performing alongside Anna Kendrick's Becca and her a cappella group the Barden Bellas, as well as with Australian actress / model / DJ Ruby Rose, whose character Calamity fronts an all-girl group.
Both Calamity and her band and Whiskey Shivers' characters are new introductions to the Pitch Perfect universe. Readers catch the Texas band at 1:13 in the trailer above, playing a mashup of Avicci's "Wake Me Up" and the Cranberries' "Zombie" with Rose and her crew.
Whiskey Shivers have made a name for themselves thanks to their own mashup of bluegrass and punk styles, not to mention their comedic live shows. The band has vaguely hinted at their role in the Pitch Perfect 3 film on social media.
"So, some weird stuff happened this winter, and we got a call to be part of the cast of the upcoming film Pitch Perfect 3," the band posted on Facebook in June, calling it "[e]asily one of the best experience[s] we've had personally and as a band."
Made up of frontman Bobby Fitzgerald, Andrew VanVoorhees, Joe Deuce, Jeff Hortillosa and James Bookert, the Austin-based Whiskey Shivers released a new album, Some Part of Something, in July. They are currently on tour; more information about the trek and the band itself can be found on their website.
