Parachutes Third Album, Overnight set for August 13th Release On Mercury Records!

Charlottesville, Virginia, five-piece band Parachute have completed their long-awaited third album, OVERNIGHT, scheduled to arrive August 13th on Mercury Records.   The lead single in advance of the album, “Can’t Help,” co-written by Ryan Tedder  (One Republic), was released last week & shot straight to the Top 30 on the iTunes Pop chart and hit #1 on the popular chart of Twitter Music!

OVERNIGHT’s release caps a two year span since The Way It Was, Parachute’s previous album of  May 2011, which rose to the #1 Rock Album and #2 Overall Album spots at iTunes.  The album’s success was buoyed by the iTunes #1 Rock Song “Kiss Me Slowly” (co-written with Grammy® winners Lady Antebellum) and the Top 15 AC hit “Something To Believe In” – which was played during the 2011 Rose Bowl football classic, went on to become an ESPN staple, and was performed by Parachute on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

In support of The Way It Was in 2011, Parachute – magnetic frontman Will Anderson (guitars, piano, lead vocals), Kit French (saxophone, key­boards, vocals), Alex Hargrave (bass), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Nate McFarland (lead guitar, vocals) – traveled non-stop across North America.  Over the past couple years, Parachute has played over 250 shows and have toured all around the country with bands ranging from NeedtoBreathe to Andy Grammer.  They will be heading back out on the road headlining clubs in support of OVERNIGHT this Summer (see full itinerary below).

Parachute’s debut album, Losing Sleep shot to #1 on the iTunes and Amazon digital albums charts and spawned the Top 15 Hot AC hit single “She Is Love” (whose video boasts over 6.4 million views).  A slow-burning acoustic performance of the song at the New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square kicked off a breakout year for Parachute, who appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and CBS’s The Early ShowLosing Sleep was subsequently reissued on iTunes in a deluxe version adding the “She Is Love” video, rare B-sides, acoustic versions, and live tracks.

The video for “She Is Love” spent three months on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown.  The second single, “Under Control” became one of the most popular iTunes Single Of The Week features to emerge from a #1 iTunes album.  Parachute’s songs have been featured on MTV’s The City and the CW’s One Tree Hill, Vampire Diaries and 90210
