ATHENS, GA - The South is our home. It's where we got our start in Savannah, and where we live today in Athens. Our bond with our Southeastern fanbase is something very special. Having watched our beloved Georgia Theatre burn down not too long ago, we are no strangers to those facing difficult circumstances. The recent outbreak of devastating EF-4 tornadoes has really touched home for us and our families.

In an effort to do whatever they can to help, Perpetual Groove (Athens, GA) has chosen to reduce the ticket price for their upcoming 3 day music and arts festival, Amberland. The event will be held in La Fayette, GA, May 27-30. Both areas to the north and south of the site were hit with severe weather that caused damage to homes and businesses. Seeing this destruction with their own eyes and hearing how their fans have been affected by the storms has been such a moving moment for the band.

All Pre-sale tickets will be $75 and $95 at the gate. Those who purchased a ticket at the higher price will be given a choice to either receive the difference at the gate or donate the difference to an organization of the bands choosing (Tuscaloosa Red Cross or other local disaster relief organizations), in an effort to supply those in need in the quickest way possible.

More information on how you can help the areas hit can be found at www.alredcross.org. This Red Cross Site will give you different options for volunteering and donations.

We are currently reaching out to different local disaster relief organizations and will have more information available at this year's Amberland. For more information on the festival, go to www.pgroove.com.

It's the very least we can do to help bring some cheer to those who are experiencing some very tough times. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered.

Here is a video put together by the band to help explain their thoughts on the situation.
