Fifteen years into its career, livetronica pioneers Particle started in L.A. but have played coast-to-coast tours and shows in eight countries. Changing family and work situations among the band’s members (led by keyboardist/songwriter Steve Molitz) led to a semi-hiatus from 2006-2014. But last year “Molitz felt the overwhelming desire to relaunch Particle as a full-time band,” says the group’s bio. “So along with guitarist Ben Combe [and] bassist Clay Parnell … Molitz has officially returned to touring full-time with Particle, and to continuing the band’s ever-evolving journey.”
For the spring tour, Particle is joined by Allen Aucoin (Disco Biscuits) on drums. The band has also released two new studio tracks, “Die Rote Kapelle (The Red Orchestra)” and “I’m Awake.” Both tracks are available for free download.
