Two of my favorites are joining forces: Pitch Perfect and Pentatonix. It was revealed to EW that vocal group, Pentatonix would be joining the cast of the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2 movie. Rejoice, aca-nerds! The group is set to play a rival group to the Barden Bellas and have already filmed their part. This sequel is going to be aca-awesome. Too bad we will all have to wait until 2015 to see it.
Pentatonix released the video for their original song, “Love Again” and it is trippy! For a moment I thought it was a KoRn video. haha. The group is always willing to try new things and this music video is definitely different with the sci-fi theme. The track is a classic infectious pop tune, so if you are a PTX fan, you will for sure be getting down to this track. Have a look and listen to the video above!
Exciting news for the amazing vocal group, Pentatonix! The quintet just got signed to RCA Records. The group have released three albums, sold out their North American tour and are currently on a sold out European tour. RCA Records released the following statement:
“We are thrilled to have Pentatonix join RCA,” says RCA President & COO Tom Corson. “Their musicality and special vocal abilities have enabled them to create innovative original songs as well as re-create some of today’s biggest hits. Pentatonix is unique to our business and we look forward to working with them as we take their talents to new and exciting heights everywhere in the world.”
The uber amazing vocal group, Pentatonix is starting the new year right! They sold out their 30-date North American Tour and are now teaming up with Lucky Charms for the cereal brand’s 50th Anniversary.
PTX arranged and recorded a new version of the Lucky Charms song and each member will be shown in animated form in the commercial. How awesome is that?!? The ad will premiere during the 56th Annual Grammy Awards telecast this Sunday, January 26th on CBS. But why wait, when you can watch it above? 🙂
Pentatonix are heading out on a sold out European tour (crazy!), and they show no signs of slowing down. The group just announced dates for an upcoming North American headline tour that will begin February 4, 2014 and go through April. All tickets and limited VIP Packages (that include meet & greets, access to soundcheck, exclusive merchandise and even a private performance) are available here.
A cappella group, Pentatonix will be releasing their second album, PTX Volume 2 on November 5th exclusively through iTunes. It will include their cover of the Swedish House Mafia songs, “Save The World” and “Don’t Worry Child” as an album-only bonus track.

Pentatonix (PTX) have released a new video of their cover of “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The track will be on their next release PTX Vol 2 which is expected to be released in October. In November, the group will be off to Europe for a fall tour. Tickets are on sale now.
The video is pretty awesome and I’m not just saying that because it was filmed at my alma mater, Mount St. Mary’s College – Chalon Campus. The shots look amazing, but that’s pretty typical for every PTX video. The group managed to turn another cover into a spectacular a capella arrangement that is all their own. I also like how each scene features a different group member in the front and everyone is wearing the style of that person. Subtle, but clever! I can say I always look forward to their next video, but for now check this one out above!
Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling on a cover of “Radioactive” from Imagine Dragons has to be one of the coolest collabs in the young music scene yet. Both acts have been causing a stir in their respective areas of music and putting them together was a genius move. Lindsey is an incredibly talented violinist and Pentatonix has brought a capella groups into the limelight.
“Radioactive” is my current favorite song from Imagine Dragons (that entire album has been on repeat for me) and these guys put a cool new twist on it. It’s also nice to see Kevin go at it on the cello again (check out those YouTube videos!). The music video has a cool feel to it and seeing what each act has done on their own, this was a nice venture for them to try out.
The a cappella group Pentatonix kicked off their 2013 nationwide tour with success at Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Theater last week.

For those hoping for some new tracks, Pentatonix is looking at a spring release date for PTX Volume 2.
