Win Particle’s new 'Transformations Live' CD/DVD!
On July 18th, Shout! Factory will release two new live titles from Los Angeles based band Particle. The DVD, Transformations Live, was recorded on February 24th, 2006 at the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood before a capacity crowd. Transformations Live: For The People will be released as a companion two-CD set that includes recordings from the Henry Fonda show as well as songs from the February 28th, 2006 performance at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco.
The live DVD and CD set, which are available for purchase separately, capture a fresh line up that now includes two guitar players and the addition of vocals into the group. Both releases feature very special guests including Joe Satriani, Robby Krieger, Blackalicious, and DJ Logic.
Particle, a band known for its heavy tour schedule, took a break from the road after 700 shows in eight countries over five years to begin searching for a guitar player. Now a five-piece band, Particle added two guitar players and vocalists -- Ben Combe and Scott Metzger -- to its core lineup consisting of original members Eric Gould (bass, vocals), Darren Pujalet (drums, vocals) and Steve Molitz (keyboards, vocals). Combe and Metzger each made unique and powerful impressions beyond expectations with complimentary guitar styles and vocal ability, so in the end both were asked to join. The Transformations releases document this turning point in Particle’s career.
Shortly after the Henry Fonda event, Particle headed to The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco where they recorded songs to include on the audio release. The Fat Tuesday party was complete with a feathered burlesque dance troupe and a second-line horn section. Transformations Live: For The People contains a handful of songs that are unique to the CD set including “Triple Threat,” “Ghetto Queen,” “Fiyo On The Bayou”, “Ed & Molly” and “Losing It”-- all recorded during the Mardi Gras extravaganza. All of the special guests on the DVD are included on the CD as well.
So, if you would like to win either one of these new CDs or DVDs (our choice), just answer this easy question: On the DVD, the 'Collaborations' featurette features “Simulator” with which worldly-known guitarist?!
