Rock band O.A.R. are well known for their incredible live performances that have seen them play to sold out audiences in iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks. The band has built their following off of extensive touring as well as a string of hit singles such as, “Love and Memories”, “Shattered”, and now their current single “Peace”. “Peace”, the brand new song from their upcoming album is a first for the band’s new label Vanguard Records.
“Peace” is the kind of anthemic song that has made O.A.R. a successful recording and touring band for well over a decade. “Peace” has garnered immediate major market airplay at radio stations across the country. And beginning today fans can purchase the single on iTunes. You can listen to the song here.
O.A.R. is currently finishing up the new album which was written and recorded in Nashville, Maryland, and New York City. It’s the band’s first studio album for Vanguard and their 8th overall. O.A.R. has also released five live albums, including their acclaimed CD/DVD from Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside of Denver.
Welk Music Group President Kevin Welk stated, “I have been looking to work with O.A.R. for a long time. Everyone at Vanguard is excited to partner with them on one of their best recordings to date.”
To celebrate the new single “Peace” and upcoming album, the band is kicking off “O.A.R.’s Extended Stay” club tour, playing special intimate shows, multiple nights at club size venues in April and May.
“This year we are bringing our Extended Stay tour out west so we can see fans we’ve missed for a long time,” said O.A.R. lead singer Marc Roberge. “We’re going to play some cuts off the new album, but really digging deep into the catalogue to make up for lost time.”
