“Pentatonix does it again with PTX Volume 2,” says Madison Gate Records executive Shelly Bunge. “With a collection of covers and original songs, the album showcases exactly why Pentatonix is the number one a cappella recording artist in the country. We couldn’t be happier to be part of this project.”

The group also has more than 490,000 Facebook fans and nearly 135,000 Twitter followers. The band’s latest video release, a cover of Lorde’s #1 hit “Royals,” has garnered more than 8 million views in its first 2 weeks and is the most-viewed YouTube cover of the New Zealand star’s highly-duplicated indie anthem.
