with Shakey Feelin' Particle has announced that they will be touring extensively from coast to coast in 2014 for the first time in nearly six years. The band will be hitting the East Coast and Southeast on the first leg of their tour, and they'll be making a stop at the Aura Music Festival in Live Oak, FL along the way. Then they head out to the West Coast and Midwest later this Spring, before ending their tour with a Jazz Fest late night at the legendary Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans, LA. In addition to a heavy touring schedule, the band will be releasing its first full-length studio album since Launchpad (2004). After forming in 2000, Particle quickly became one of the pioneers of the emerging livetronica scene, and they went on to perform over a thousand concerts in eight different countries. They soon became known for staging epic marathon sets at national festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. For their upcoming tours, the band will continue its tradition of combining a full light show and multimedia production with their signature mix of high-energy dance music, rock and funk. This is a time of revival for Particle, and it is also a time of change. Particle's original rhythm section recently announced their departure from the band, sharing their desires to spend more time at home with their families, and less time on the road touring. They gave fellow founding member and keyboardist Steve Molitz their full support to carry the Particle torch along with longtime guitarist Ben Combe and an exciting new rhythm section consisting of bassist Clay Parnell (Brothers Past), and drummer Brandon Draper (Quixotic). This newly revitalized lineup wrote and recorded over a dozen new songs together in late 2013, and they plan to debut many of the new songs on their upcoming Winter and Spring tours.
