The Constellations Embark On U.S. Tour In Support Of Matisyahu ALL NEW ALBUM "DO IT FOR FREE" AVAILABLE ON 429 RECORDS

Band Performed on Entire Warped Tour This Summer

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Constellations, astute purveyors of Atlanta's rock/soul underbelly, will embark on a national tour with Matisyahu beginning in October (see dates below).  Newly signed with 429 Records, the band is promoting "DO IT FOR FREE"—their debut album for 429 and the follow up to their acclaimed debut "Southern Gothic" (Virgin).  Led by Elijah Jones, and featuring Wes Hoffman (bass), Travis Phillips (guitar), James Gordon (keyboards) and Shane Hoffman (drums)—the band reinforces their reputation for hard swinging alt beats but have honed their musical outlook concentrating on muscular grooves and  a more soulful melodicism.  Produced by Andy Rose, the swirling funk anchored by the B3 and Fender Rhodes Organ provides the perfect backdrop for the band's trademark gritty songwriting.  Known for their live show, the band is fresh from performing on the entire Warped Tour this summer. "DO IT FOR FREE" was released on 429 Records on June 12, 2012.

Perfectly suited for the Warped Tour, the Constellations are constantly touring—taking every opportunity to hit the road. Much of the inspiration for DO IT FOR FREE came to light after months on the road.  Elijah also connects his active involvement with the Occupy Movement with some of the inspiration for DO IT FOR FREE—the title a reference to the 99 Percenters as well as the band's dedication and love for playing live no matter what the costs or profit.

Says Elijah Jones:  "We've been on the road for what seems like forever and a lot has changed musically since our first release.  We're changing what The Constellations' sound can and will be defined as. While there was no overall concept going into the writing and recording of Do It For Free, we knew we wanted to make something that sounded a little more soulful, with more melodic songwriting and less rapping. We wanted it to be defined under one musical umbrella instead of doing all the stylistic jumps."
