October 11! Record Release Show + New Single!

Tab width

It’s happening! We will be releasing our long-awaited record to YOU on October 11th along w/ an extra special record release show at The Sinclair in Cambridge! This is our first time headlining this amazing room and we are SO excited.

Yes, this album has taken FAR TOO LONG for many, many reasons (where do we begin?), and we thank you for your infinite patience and sticking around. We hope it’s worth it — and we heard from some folks who received the vinyl that it IS indeed worth the wait.

The folks at Vanyaland premiered our new 88-second single, “Headache” this past Friday. It’s a loud and fast one about getting a concussion and heartbreak (e.g., very fun stuff). We’ve included a download here too.

Tickets are now on sale for October 11th at The Sinclair below! This is not one to miss!

Album Art!

Hey everyone! A bunch of you have now received the vinyl in the mail! Still waiting on a few more folks to update their addresses — you know who you are : ) — but here’s the album art by our good friend, Mary Lewey (www.marylewey.com).

This hand-cut collage was created from vintage books and magazines and looks VERY cool on 12×12 vinyl!

Mary: “Collaborating w/ Parks was a natural fit. Our styles are similar: playful, nostalgic, thoughtful. Brian and I have a mutual trust in another’s aesthetic and instinct. For the art, he envisioned a striking foreground against a clean background. I was saving the ‘moody blonde’ mod for something special. This was it! The finished product is a real gem to see and hold, but especially to hear.”

We’re on the hunt for a small label who can help us with important, boring stuff in order to give this baby a REAL release to the world, but I’m shipping the vinyl out on a near-daily basis — they aren’t exactly easy to carry on the train : )

"Fools" Premiere & Vinyl Is Here!

Hello, Pledgers!
It’s been a while! Under the Radar premiered our new song/video, “Fools.”
We hope you enjoy it! It’s posted on our Pledge Music page too w/ a free download. It’s also on Spotify.

The article also sheds a lot of light on what’s been going on with us and the record. The last year has been extremely difficult, so again, thanks for being patient and understanding.

That said, the vinyl is HERE and ready to be shipped to you!

So, look out for an email from us to confirm your shipping details since some of you may have changed addresses.

The record won’t be available to the rest of the world just yet — just our Pledge Music community until we sort out some boring, but exciting behind-the-scenes stuff. But feel free to tell your friends about how much you love it, because you will indeed love it : )

Enjoy “Fools,” and please give it a “Like/Love/Angry Emoji” wherever you follow us.

Vinyl Update + News!

Hi! The vinyl is FINALLY on it’s way to us! We had a few manufacturing delays as we wanted to make sure it sounded incredible — which it now does. As promised, we’ll be shipping to our amazing Pledgers before ANYONE ELSE. You’ll hear it first!

It’s been a crazy ride so far, and we thank you SO much for your patience. We think you’re going to love these 11 songs. And the reasons why it took so long to make ’em will be explained soon enough : )

We’ll be playing at The Sinclair in Boston on Friday, July 7! We’ll have some new merch incl. some classy prints designed by our singer/songwriter, Brian, along w/ some other surprises. Come say hi!

More news:
1. If you’re a gamer, our song “Sweater Weather” was recently featured in the new “Rock Band VR” along w/ some “lesser-known” artists like David Bowie and Nirvana. It’s a big honor as we’re the only indie band that was chosen to be a part of the game!

2. Oh, and here’s the album art. It’s a handmade/hand-cut collage created by the super-talented Mary Lewey (marylewey.squarespace.com/). It looks amazing on big ’ol 12″×12″ vinyl!

3. We recently finished up the video for our next single “Fools,” by our pal Avi (www.avipaulweinstein.com), so look out for that.
Again, you’ll hear it first!

XO
