New Music Tuesday: Darling Parade

New Music Tuesday: Darling Parade

Another week, another new band! And I’m happy to say that I’ve found yet another great band with a female vocalist and I’m ridiculously excited about this.

Darling Parade was one of several bands who followed me on social media. I eventually made a list of all the artists and bands who followed me on Twitter or Instagram, and today I started working through said list.

So who are they? Darling Parade is an alt-rock band from Nashville, formed in 2007. The band is currently signed with Page 2 Music. Darling Parade’s music has been heard on TV shows such as ABC Family’s (now Freeform) The Lying Game and Showtime’s Shameless. They’ve toured in the past with Cassadee Pope (Hey Monday) and have also appeared with bands such as Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Ataris. Members include Kristin Kearns (vocals, rhythm guitar), Nate McCoy (lead guitar, backing vocals), Dustin McCoy (bass), and Casey Conrad (drums).

I listened to their music first and learned about their hometown after, which made it interesting to me that a band created this alternative, 2000s punk-ish music while centered out a huge center for country music. My personal favorite by Darling Parade is “Perfectly Worthless” (2009).

Darling Parade last released an album in 2013, titled Battle Scars and Broken Hearts. A deluxe version of the album was released the same year, featuring several remixes and acoustic renditions. Since then, the band has released a music video for their song “Ghost” off Battle Scars and Broken Hearts.

They’ve been relatively quiet lately on social media, with no hints as to what they’re currently doing. It’s possible that they’re working on their next album and so chose to take a social media break (it’s happened before–hi Ed Sheeran), but you never know!
