L.A.-based rock band Carney set out on tour this summer in support of their eagerly awaited debut album Mr. Green Vol. 1 out May 11th on DAS Label/Interscope. Carney also headlined a special album release show on May 15th at LA's El Rey Theatre before embarking on a cross-country tour supporting UK songsmiths, Athlete, kicking off May 31st at Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ.
Carney are known for their incendiary live show with regular sold out LA residencies at the El Rey Theatre and The Troubadour. Named one of the hottest bands at Lollapalooza by Spin, the band has also won over crowds at Bonnaroo, San Diego Street Scene and Outside Lands Festival, with Entertainment Weekly naming Reeve Carney (lead vocals/guitar) "one of the 10 Rising Stars to watch in 2010."
In addition to band frontman duties, Reeve's extracurricular activities include playing the role of Peter Parker/Spiderman in the upcoming Julie Taymor-directed Broadway production of "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark", featuring music written by Bono and The Edge. "An amazing voice and a truly charismatic presence", raves Bono of Reeve. Reeve Carney has also been cast in the film adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest alongside Helen Mirren, Alan Cumming and Russell Brand.
A limited run of 1,000 autographed collector's edition CDs with signed poster are available for pre-order now: http://store.interscope.com/carney/ Carney's first single, "Love Me Chase Me" is available on iTunes "It's cinematic, it jumps around to different places, and in the span of five minutes, it sort of sums up what we're capable of as a band," says guitarist Zane Carney. "I like having a cinematic approach to music," adds lead singer, Reeve Carney.
The music video for the single co-stars Evan Rachel Wood and was shot on the set of the hit HBO series Carnivale. Check it out here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/carney/love-me-chase me/USUV70903483.
