With new single “Better Dig Two” rising quickly up the charts, country trio The Band Perry announced Thursday (Jan. 10) they’ll release their as-yet-untitled sophomore album on April 2.
“Better Dig Two” is the band’s fastest-rising single to date and in ten weeks is already No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart. The group will perform more new songs and unveil a new concert production at a trio of Midwestern shows beginning tonight in Green Bay, WI.
The act’s self-titled first album debuted in 2010 and peaked at No. 2 on the Country Albums chart and has moved 1.44 million in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
It was an incredible start for the Republic Nashville artists, which is made up of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry.
The group has notched five top 10 singles on the Hot Country Songs chart, including the No. 1s “All Your Life” and the crossover smash “If I Die Young.” The latter reached No. 14 on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 chart and has sold 4.4 million downloads – the third-biggest selling country digital song ever.
