Have You Heard? Blank Parody
Meet Blank Parody; a four piece alternative rock band hailing from Staffordshire and the West Midlands who have been writing and performing together since 2014, although their first year as a band was silent, with all the hard work happening behind the scenes.
After releasing their first track in 2016, with producer Jim Pinder (Fightstar, WSS), ‘Dark Pretenders’, the band gained attention from BBC Introducing WM, Made In Birmingham and NME. Following this their second and third singles ‘Locket Picture‘ and ‘Marching Through The Smoke‘ gained numerous views and streams and went on to be featured on and reviewed in Kerrang!, Scuzz, Amazing Radio, New Music Magazine and Punktastic. The band have also supported the likes of Electric Six!, Vukovi, Freeze The Atlantic and TheCityIsOurs.
After keeping it under wraps for a while, the rock quartet are releasing their debut EP ‘A Tension’ on the 18th August 2017. To celebrate the release, Blank Parody will be performing at the Asylum 2 in Birmingham on the 18th August 2017 and Proud Camden on the 19th August 2017 to support the release.
The EP, produced by Jim Pinder (Fightstar/Bullet For My Valentine) and mastered by Geoff Pesche (Pulp) at Abbey Road, is an exhilarating exhibition of the band’s ability to combine fuzzy guitars, coarse vocals, frantic drums and cutting lyricism. Taking insanely catchy, Britpop inspired melodies and fusing them with a soundscape of slick riffs and bombastic rhythms, Blank Parody are primed and ready to break down the doors of the UK rock scene this year. Following shows at Camden Rocks Festival and Sheffield’s Tramlines the quartet are set to play this year’s in Liverpool on the 5th August, as well as several Birmingham and London dates to support their debut.
