Morning Parade will release of their long-anticipated self-titled debut album on June 19 on Astralwerks Records.
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 US.
