Parachute news

Wide Awake, the forthcoming album from Parachute, arrives March 11.

The lineup currently consists of Will Anderson (lead vocals, songwriter, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher "Kit" French (saxophone, keyboards) 

"We felt like we had no limitations to chase this sound that the three of us have wanted to build for so long," says Anderson. "It was as if we were woken up from some sort of slumber, revitalized and rejuvenated with this new awareness of who we are as a band.
Reuniting with producer John Fields (who was at the helm with their 2009 and 2011 efforts), there are 12 tracks on Wide Awake including "Without You." 
To celebrate the release, the band will embark on a national headline tour in March with a hometown show at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville, VA. Tickets go on sale Jan. 15.  Each ticket purchased comes with a digital download of the new album upon release. Full list of tour dates below.

In addition, Wide Awake will be available for pre-order on Jan. 15 via iTunes, Amazon and additional outlets. With each pre-order, fans will receive an instant download of the two songs "Crave" and the new single "Without You".
Forming in Charlottesville, VA , Parachute emerged on the national music scene in 2009 with their inaugural release Losing Sleep, marking their major label bow featuring the single "She is Love" debuting at #1 on iTunes.
Over the next few years, they released The Way It Was in 2011 and 2013's Overnight which debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200.  Parachute has toured with such artists as Kelly Clarkson and Gavin DeGraw, in addition to three sold out headlining tours.
