The band will release their long-awaited new album in October of this year, with preparations of a world tour including Europe, Australia and the USA.
Late last year, Los Angeles-based world music/rock band Twenty7 was named one of the top unsigned bands by respected trade publication MUSIC CONNECTION, and early this year, the band's "No Chemical Love" from their Papatya EP was nominated for Best Indie Rock Song at the Artists in Music Awards. At one of America’s largest music and art festivals, Twenty7 won the 2012 Burning Man Award out of 348 awards given out to artists and musicians for excellence, inspiration, and beauty. Now, Twenty7 is breaking into the movies as their single "Second Mind" is featuring in the recently-debuted film ABOUT CHERRY, starring James Franco and Heather Graham.
