MORNING PARADE CONFIRM LIVE DATES AS SPECIAL GUESTS OF WALK THE MOON

TO RELEASE SELF-TITLED DEBUT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM ON JUNE 19TH, 2012 VIA ASTRALWERKS RECORDS


“‘Headlights’ has choruses to spare and will definitely blow your mind” – Q Magazine

“What do you get when you meld together the ebb and flow of 90s dance anthems with the crunch and tingle of indie rock? You get the soaring and catchy sounds of British band Morning Parade” – MTV.com

“We can never have too many thundering beats, booming choruses, and guitar-driven songs in our lives.” –NYLONmag.com

Hailing from Essex, England, Morning Parade is proud to announce the release of their long-anticipated debut full-length on June 19th as well as live tour dates in June as special guests of Ohio natives, Walk The Moon (full listing below).

The band is already causing waves of anticipation with the release of their debut single, “Headlights” which is gaining swift momentum at alternative radio across the U.S.,  in addition to six spectacular shows at SXSW, live dates as special guests of The Kooks in March and recently premiering their video on RollingStone.com.

Heavily tipped at the beginning of 2011, Morning Parade side-stepped the hype-trap which many a new band has fallen into by rushing out a quick debut album and instead took their time to write the album they wanted to make whilst building a solid and loyal fanbase all across Europe.

The result is a breathtaking statement of intent, demonstrating a depth of lyric and songwriting which has become increasingly rare amongst many contemporary artists. It is a purposeful, heartfelt and honest collection of songs.

From the bristling and driving rhythms of “Us and Ourselves” to the feel good anthem “Under the Stars”, the album takes you on an emotional rollercoaster, meandering between different textures and dynamics.  The rousing no-holds barred rock’n’roll of “Blue Winter and “Headlights” pack a considerable punch as album openers while the delicate ode to unrequited love that is “Monday Morning” juxtaposes with the life-affirming show-stopper “Born Alone.

Recorded with acclaimed producer David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), the self-titled debut album will be available physically and digitally across the U.S.

2011 saw the band selling out UK and European headline tours, playing to packed out tents at V Festival, touring with the likes of 30 Seconds to Mars, The Wombats and The Kooks, supporting Biffy Clyro at Ibiza Rocks and sharing a stage with Coldplay at Rock am Ring.
