The Band Perry Announce Release Date of Highly Anticipated New Album! We’ve been waiting on this news for awhile now, and The Band Perry have finally announced a release date for their highly anticipated sophmore album! The new record will drop on April 2nd, and it features the already gold certified (500, 000 + sold) single “Better Dig Two“! The debut single is honestly quite similar in theme to what we’ve heard from the sibling trio on their debut album. However, musically and vocally it is a much stronger effort, and I think bodes very well for what we can expect from the rest of the record!
