We Have Heard On High
Earlier this summer, their debut EP – PTX Volume 1 – debuted at #14 on the Billboard Top 200 selling nearly 20,000 copies in its first week and the band quickly set out on its first headline tour, selling out more than two dozen shows. The Philadelphia Inquirer said: No strictly vocal act sounds more ecstatic in triumph than Pentatonix, the Texas-based winners of The Sing-Off's third season that sold out Union Transfer on Monday. Euphoric best describes the joyful, self-described "futuristic a cappella" quintet who played before a wildly enthusiastic Philly audience.
Pentatonix are taking instrument-free music far beyond anyone’s wildest expectations. Named after the world’s most widely recognized five-note musical scale, this vocal quintet has transformed one of pop music’s purest and most soulful expressions into an exciting future, filled with limitless sonic possibility. Pairing their intricate arrangements with cleverly re-imagined pop songs, Pentatonix have quickly cultivated a sound and style that is entirely unique and undeniably infectious. Their youtube channel boasts over 30 million views http://www.youtube.com/ptxofficial buoyed by its roughly 250,000 subscribers and their Facebook numbers currently at 172,000 have tripled since June http://www.facebook.com/Pentatonix.
