“Gym Class Heroes will herald The Papercut Chronicles II — due in stores and at all digital retailers on November 15th — with a number of high profile TV appearances. First up, GCH frontman Travie McCoy will team up with Adam Levine and Maroon 5 for a very special performance of “Stereo Hearts” on the Saturday, November 5th installment of NBC’s Saturday Night Live (check local listings). Travie and Gym Class Heroes are then scheduled to perform the chart-topping track on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, slated for Thursday, November 17th. As if all that weren’t enough, GCH will hit NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, December 8th for the debut TV performance of “Ass Back Home (Feat. Neon Hitch),” the upcoming second single from The Papercut Chronicles II. That song will be available tomorrow for sale exclusively tomorrow on iTunes.
Gym Class Heroes — who recently performed “Stereo Hearts” with Levine on NBC’s blockbuster singing competition, The Voice — are currently in the midst of a major North American tour. The dates — which see the band co-headlining alongside The Dirty Heads — continue through mid-November (see itinerary below). GCH will then spend the season celebrating at an array of upcoming holiday radio concerts, including Z100’s annual Jingle Ball extravaganza, slated for Friday, December 9th at New York City’s world-famous Madison Square Garden. For up-to-the-minute information, please visit http://gymclassheroes.com.
The current itinerary follows Gym Class Heroes’ summer stint as one of the top acts headlining Vans Warped Tour ’11, as well as at September’s sold-out FBR15 series of multi-artist concerts at New York City’s Terminal 5. The band was also among the artists who took part in AT&T’s recent “Music For You” concert series. Their live performance from Dallas will be presented to fans starting November 15 through a range of AT&T multimedia platforms, including AT&T U-verse TV On Demand, U-verse Online, and U-verse Mobile App.
The Papercut Chronicles II sees Gym Class Heroes continuing to push the envelope with their trademark fusion of rock, pop, and alternative hip-hop. The exhilarating collection finds the band collaborating with a stellar line-up of studio talents and special guests, including such top stars as Adam Levine, Ryan Tedder, Oh Land, and Neon Hitch. Fans are invited to check out such new tracks as “Martyrial Girl$” and “Life Goes On (Feat. Oh Land)” — which is also on sale now at iTunes — via Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/FueledByRamen). Another track from the album, “The Fighter (feat. Ryan Tedder),” will become available on 11/8 exclusively on iTunes.”
