The band is comprised of Brooklynite duo Christian Zucconi (vocals/guitar) and Hannah Hooper (keyboards/vocals), who met the three other members of the band (Sean Gadd- bass/vocals, Andrew Wessen – guitar/vocals and Ryan Rabin – drums) at an art residency in Crete one fateful summer and haven’t looked back since.

Grouplove’s summer schedule is already packed with high profile appearances all over the world, beginning at Glastonbury Festival this weekend along with T In the Park, Oxegen, Latitude and Reading and Leeds. They’ll also be playing two consecutive nights at London’s Barfly on June 28th and 29th. Other summer festival appearances include stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Outside Lands in San Francisco.

Grouplove closed last year touring the U.S. with The Joy Formidable and being handpicked to open a number of West Coast dates for Florence + The Machine. Since then, the band has been on the road nearly non-stop in support of their self-titled debut EP, released in January via Canvasback Music. Following an extensive tour through Europe and a slate of standout performances at this year’s SXSW, Grouplove co-headlined a sold-out cross country U.S. tour with Foster The People.

Grouplove’s upcoming UK appearances:

Glastonbury Park Stage – 24th June

London’s Barfly – 28 & 29th June

T In The Park – 9th July

Oxygen – 10th July

Latitude – 15th July

Reading & Leeds – 26-28th August
