Self-Titled Debut Album Is Out Now on Astralwerks

“‘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




Essex, UK rockers, Morning Parade, will return to the U.S. in September as special guests of The Wombats for an extensive tour.  Additionally, on August 20th, the band will make their network TV debut on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

Just last month, the band released their long-anticipated self-titled debut album which was quickly chosen as the iTunes Editor’s Choice and “Headlights,” the first single, is steadily climbing the Alternative radio chart and in rotation at mtvU and Palladia. The band will join Civil Twilight in August for a west coast tour.

Morning Parade has been consistently blowing away audiences this year with their spectacular live shows including dates as special guests of The Kooks in March, a six performance run at SXSW, and a tour with Walk the Moon this past June.  The band also recently premiered 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 song writing 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 LashesEverything Everything), the self-titled debut album is available now 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 MarsThe Wombats andThe Kooks, supporting Biffy Clyro at Ibiza Rocks and sharing a stage with Coldplay at Rock am Ring.
