“In the most uncertain year of our lives, making OK ORCHESTRA was the one certain thing we had to hold on to,” said AJR. “We ended up with the most sonically experimental and emotionally raw album we’ve ever made.”
AJR’s “BANG!” has cracked the Top 10 at three radio formats with the song currently sitting at No. 6 on Pop radio, No. 5 on the Adult Pop radio chart and it reached No. 2 at Alternative radio earlier this year. The song has generated more than 280 million streams worldwide and is AJR’s sixth platinum single to date. It reached No. 1 on the iTunes All Genres and USA Top 100 Shazam charts, has been featured on the Billboard Hot 100 for 24 consecutive weeks and is currently No. 8 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart. AJR has performed “BANG!” on TODAY, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and most recently the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. It’s also currently featured in a new Apple ‘Gifts’ commercial.
Their last full-length album Neotheater debuted at the top of the Billboardcharts in 2019 (No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Alternative and Rock Albums charts) and featured their platinum certified single “100 Bad Days.” In their decade music roundups, Spotify named AJR’s smash “Sober Up” one of the Best Rock Songs of the 2010s and Apple Music named AJR’s hit “Weak” one of the Best Alt Songs of the 2010s.
Fans will have the chance to see the group perform during AJR’s One Spectacular Night, an immersive concert live stream on December 26. The event will redefine the scope, size and spirit of the modern at-home concert experience with cutting-edge laser, LED and wire-automation technology that will blur the lines between a movie, Broadway show and concert. The new, never-before-seen show will be broadcasted by Kiswe, the company behind the record-setting BTS live stream. Tickets start at $25 and are available at www.AJRbrothers.com.
AJR will wrap the year up with a special performance of “BANG!” on “NBC’s New Year’s Eve 2021” broadcast.
