Hailing from Essex, England, Morning Parade are proud to announce the release of their debut single on March 13 via Astralwerks as well as live tour dates in March as special guests of The Kooks and SxSW live dates. This release will be preceded by a competition in partnership with cutting-edge global social contest platform, Talenthouse, to create a brand new music video for the band's upcoming single "Headlights."
This single will be released digitally on March 13 but will also appear on their brand new, limited edition, numbered EP, The Hated & The Loved, to be made exclusively available via www.MorningParade.com and at the band's live shows. Check out the brand new video for "Us & Ourselves" from the EP, which is here. Their full-length album will be released this summer.
The band is inviting filmmakers to create their own music videos for "Headlights." The winning submission, chosen by the band using Facebook and Twitter public votes as a guide will be announced on April 2 and will become the official music video for the upcoming single.
A "People's Choice" winner will also be selected via a public vote and will win a Canon Digital Camera and an EMI merchandise bag.
Talenthouse, the cutting edge social contest platform, identifies and compensates artists through life-changing creative contests. In just two years, Talenthouse has developed more than 200 creative invites enabling submitting artists and hosts to virally grow their audiences and generate reach in Facebook and Twitter.
"We love all the ideas and campaigns we have seen on Talenthouse and are excited to partner in this promotion to uncover an amazing video for our song," said lead singer Steve Sparrow.
