After months of suspense and excitement from the illustrious trance trio Above & Beyond, the 100th episode of their acclaimed radio show Above & Beyond Group Therapy finds a home in New York City’s finest, Madison Square Garden. Trance heads around the globe are coming together for a monumental show from Above & Beyond. ABGT100 will be an extremely special event due to the show’s achieved milestone, the assorted line up, and not to mention their recent album announcement of We Are All We Need. Snapchat will be featuring an exclusive #ABGT100 geofilter for the event. ABGT100 will also include a special announcement from the trance triad. Yesterday, A&B posted via Facebook that during the show both Los Angeles and London can expect a special announcement.
A&B plans to kick off the ABGT100 celebration with an unexpected and rare deep set for the first hour. Followed by Anjunabeat sensations Ilan Bluestone and Andrew Bayer, the roster also includes diverse producer Mat Zo. The evening is set to close off with a special two-hour set from the trance icons.

Above & Beyond also released the latest single from their forthcoming album, which is also the track that created the name of the album, “We're All We Need.” The official music video was appropriately premiered at Times Square in NYC yesterday. “We're All We Need” features melodic vocals from Zoë Johnson and follows the story of defiant friendship. Andrew Bayer reportedly helped produced much of the album We Are All We Need, as he also aided in the production of the 2011 album Group Therapy. The upcoming album encompasses a theme of human relationships and focus’ on how our experiences and emotions shape who we are.
A&B stated that this track embodies the central theme of the album: “As the writing process unfolded we kept noticing a recurring theme. Zoe hit it on the head with the beautiful song “We’re All We Need” and, after a minute’s thought, we had our album title. It’s very Above & Beyond and feels to us like a development of Group Therapy: you are most certainly included in our ‘We’!”
