We've been lucky enough to do a few live television appearances over the years. It's always harrowing--a whole lot of early load-ins (here's to you WREG in Memphis), soundstage shenanigans, and a lot of "hurry up and wait" before you get 2-3 minutes to strut your stuff. Once the red lights flash on the cameras, however, adrenaline takes over and the performance always flies by. 

The kind folks at ABC in Chicago asked us to be on their midday program Windy City Live and we were happy to oblige. This was a stacked show: Peter Sagal of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me and Charlie Day of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia and Horrible Bosses were we ran into our first manager, Jill Katona.

Stef and Jilly Katona!

It's always sunny between Stef and Charlie.

It was a blast. We performed the first track from Starlight, "Love You Better." Click here to view the video! Thanks again to all the folks at WLS for having us on!

"Too Late" single debuts!

Amid the champagne and streamers at TRN headquarters, we're proud to announce the debut of our new single "Too Late"  -- our first new release since 2012! We're grateful to Live For Live Music's blog for debuting our song to the world. Listen here: 

The Starlight album, out February 24th, represents a big move forward for The Right Now in terms of concept and sound -- although "Too Late" may be the track most fitting of the band's past work. There's enough old-school soul to keep their fans happy, but hold on to your hat when the rest of the album kicks in later this month! For those interested, here are the lyrics to "Too Late."

We're very excited to share this music with you, and thanks for getting our music out there. Enjoy!

Pre-order Starlight!

We're proud to announce that our new album, Starlight, is available for pre-order on Cd and Vinyl. Click here to order your copy and make sure it's in your hands by the release date, February 24th.

The vinyl is going to be something special: 150g, translucent blue vinyl, and a special lyric insert. We had it mastered differently for vinyl by Grammy winning engineer Rich Breen (the physical particulars of the vinyl format mean that you can't just plop any old audio on an LP and expect it to sound good). The Starlight LP is an 8 song version of the album, but it comes with a digital download that gets you all 10 tunes. 

Anyhow, this is all very exciting. Here's a brief video we made with a sneak peek of one of the tunes!




So this is the new site, born on Jan 1, 2017. Look around, enjoy, listen to some tunes, and say hi to us. This year is going to be a fun one for The Right Now - releasing and touring in support of Starlight is going to be a blast; we're really proud of the record. 

Check back here at the News page for tour announcements, giveaways, album-related news, and other fun stuff. Be good to each other this year, and we'll see you on the road!
