BOOK OF LOVE, with all four original members, will perform a special concert to coincide with the release of their new album MMXVI – Book of Love – The 30th Anniversary Collection available on Sire/Rhino Records beginning July 1. This performance is being retooled and expanded for this special occasion and will be the first time that that the full band has performed together in many years.
One of the premiere first wave electronic groups, Book of Love emerged out of the New York City scene in the mid-’80s and was signed by the legendary Seymour Stein to Sire Records. On April 1, 1986, art-students-turned musicians Susan Ottaviano (Lead Vocals), Ted Ottaviano (Songwriter/Keyboards/Vocals), Lauren Roselli (Keyboards/Vocals) and Jade Lee (Keyboards/Vocals) released the band’s debut album. Between 1986 and 1993, the band released four albums BOOK OF LOVE, LULLABY, CANDY CAROL and LOVEBUBBLE and had a steady string of influential club hits, including the classics “Boy” and “I Touch Roses”, the ebullient “You Make Me Feel So Good”, and “Pretty Boys & Pretty Girls/Tubular Bells” which crossed over on the Billboard Hot 100. The band’s music was featured in the classic films Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Silence of the Lambs, and American Psycho.
