Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, whom Ellen DeGeneres called one of her favorite rock bands, performed their latest single “Never Go Back” for today’s Ellen audience.
Ellen: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals The Lion The Beast The Beat Album
The band’s fourth studio album, The Lion The Beast The Beat, is expected to be released June 12 2012. The band has been working on a follow up to their breakthrough self-titled 2010 album. You probably remember their chart topping hit “Paris (Ooh La La)” from that recording.
Whatever they do next, the band seems to have won Ellen’s favor. Though they are riding a wave of recent success, they did not hit it big overnight.
Ellen: About Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
As with most talented musicians, their accolades and achievements came after about a decade of hard work. They definitely put in the work to develop their sound and style over the years before getting attention in the mid-2000s, when their songs were featured on TV series such as One Tree Hill and Grey’s Anatomy, among others.
This led to a stint opening for The Black Crowes in the summer of 2008, and the breakthrough eponymous album began to take shape over the next year. It achieved great success among iTunes listeners in the United States and around the world, and helped catapult the band to a higher profile, which has led to their continued and ongoing success in the American music scene.
