The Band Perry



As far back as last fall, it was clear the Band Perry was cooking up something different for their third studio album, Heart + Beat.

For starters, there was anthemic lead single Live Forever, which the band pushed toward pop radio. There were rumors the band was working with Diplo and Pharrell Williams. And then there were the band's new, wildly colorful promotional photos, which featured them looking sleek and stylish in bold blue and yellow patterns.

"When we sit down to write songs, everything's connected for us, from the visuals to the sounds to even what we say from the stage," bassist Reid Perry said in a phone interview. "The visual side of it just represents a little bit of happiness and joy that the Band Perry's feeling. We're not fighting anyone, we're not really the underdogs anymore. We're just actually enjoying who we are."

On Sunday, the Band Perry will give fans a taste of theri new identity as they close out the Florida Strawberry Festival, performing for the third time in Plant City. Click here for details on the show.
