Particle at OP Rockwell
Seminal livetronica band, Particle, kicks off a major tour in support of their ﬁrst new studio album in 14 years. The long-awaited album, Accelerator, hits outlets September 2018 and features nine new original tracks packed with powerhouse performances and adventurous songwriting that is sure to excite both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
Over the past several years Particle has scaled their touring schedule down as founding member Steve Molitz provided multi-year stints as the keyboardist for bands such as Phil Lesh & Friends, Robby Krieger, Eric Burdon, Rich Robinson, and Playing For Change. In addition, Molitz has been busy in recent years as the lead composer for a number of video games including NBA Playgrounds 1 & 2, Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, Barack Fu: The Adventures of Dirty Barry, The Secret Life of Pets: Unleashed, Spintires: MudRunner, and the upcoming adaptation of the Paramount Pictures ﬁlm, World War Z. Molitz collaborated musically with his Particle bandmates Kito Bovenschulte, Michael Daum and Clay Parnell on nearly all of the above soundtracks, so the band's studio chops were primed and ready to roll when it came time to record Accelerator.
Their show will feature all the songs from the new album as well Particle classics, delivered by a supercharged band ready to hit the road with a renewed energy and passion to share their sonic explorations with all the Particle People coast-to-coast.
