FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DAUGHTRY ACHIEVES GLOBAL SUCCESS,
EXPANDS DEBUT WITH BONUS MUSIC AND VIDEOS
GRAMMY-NOMINATED ARTISTS SUPPORT A NUMBER OF
CHARITIES WITH NEW VIDEO FOR “WHAT ABOUT NOW”
BAND PROMOTES ONE ORGANIZATION AT BOTH POLITICAL CONVENTIONS
(New York, NY) To celebrate the global success of the record-breaking debut from 19/RCA recording artist DAUGHTRY, the Grammy-nominated group announces it will release a deluxe version of the band’s debut September 9. A hit on more than four continents, the self-titled album has already earned platinum status in the U.S.(4x) and Canada (2x) plus gold certification in Singapore, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, to name a few.
Powered by a trio of #1 songs, “It’s Not Over,” “Home,” and “Feels Like Tonight.” DAUGHTRY has become the biggest selling artist release of the past two years and the fastest selling rock debut in Soundscan history. The expanded CD/DVD version of the group’s self-titled debut features the album’s original 12 songs along with four bonus tracks on CD—including acoustic performances of “Home,” recorded in the studio, and “What About Now,” recorded earlier this year on Idol Gives Back. Making its debut on this collection is DAUGHTRY’s cover of the Foreigner classic, “Feels Like The First Time.”
The bonus DVD contains videos for all five of the singles from DAUGHTRY, live performances and exclusive interviews with the band as they tell stories about the DAUGHTRY’S meteoric rise. Just like the album, the accompanying booklet has been expanded as well with photos from the road.
The album’s runaway success has propelled DAUGHTRY into rarified company as one of the few bands to score a trio of #1 songs from its debut. DAUGHTRY is also the first group to land 4 Top 5 Hits (from a debut effort) on the Adult Top 40 radio chart since the format was created in 1996.
While DAUGHTRY gives back to its fans with the deluxe version of its debut, the band gives back to charity with a new video for its latest single “What About Now.” An active supporter of charity organizations from the start, the band will donate proceeds from the video to the following groups: Action Sports Environmental Coalition; Amnesty International; Charity: Water; Doctors Without Borders; Homeboy Industries; Insight Prison Project; Keep a Child Alive; Love, Light and Melody; Room to Read; Seacology; Surfaid International; and Urban Compass.
DAUGHTRY will join both national political conventions this year to promote the ONE Campaign (ONE.org). ONE is a nonpartisan group dedicated to raising awareness about the issues of global poverty, hunger and disease while supporting efforts to fight such problems in the world’s poorest countries. An active supporter of ONE, DAUGHTRY will take part in a full schedule of activities during the Democratic (Denver, August 25-28) and Republican (Minneapolis, September 1-4) conventions. The band’s participation will spotlight One and its mission while focusing attention on the opportunities the next president and Congress will have to make a major difference in the fight against global poverty, hunger and disease.
