By Michael Shinafelt

Hey Pentatonix fans, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....Yep Halloween is over and Christmas is coming.

PTX is releasing an album for the season, and as I am sure you PTX groupies out there know, everything they do either enhances the original song they cover, or makes it better, so have a PTXmas, I know I will...!


LOS ANGELES, CA - On November 13, vocal sensations and winners of season 3 of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” Pentatonix, will release their first-ever Christmas EP – PTXmas – via Madison Gate Records (the album is available for pre-order now on the iTunes store -https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ptxmas/id572957637).

This news coincides with the band’s announcement of a second North American tour, kicking off January 24 at Los Angeles’ Henry Fonda Music Box and continuing through March, 2013.
