“I don’t think we’ve ever been as proud of any album we’ve made as we are of this one.  These are easily the most personal, vulnerable songs I’ve written, and the hardest we’ve ever worked as a band in the studio. But getting to do an album with Jacquire was a dream come true, and we feel like we’ve finally hit our stride with the songs and the sounds. This truly is the album we’ve always wanted to make, and we’re beyond excited for people to hear it.” 
— Will Anderson 
Charlottesville-bred and platinum-selling band PARACHUTE is set to release their new self-titled album on May 10 via Thirty Tigers.  Their fifth studio album, produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, James Bay), features ten all-new tracks. The first two singles from the new album are already making an impact with the song “Had It All” garnering over 2 million streams on Spotify and 749k views on youtube and “Young” with over 1.5 million streams and 411k views in less than a month. To celebrate the new album the band is set to embark on a 40-plus city tour kicking off on April 25. Tickets available at

Forming when they were still in high school, Parachute’s Will Anderson (vocals, guitar), Johnny Stubblefield (drums), and Christopher “Kit” French (saxophone, keyboards) have proven to have a deep affinity for classic pop, heartfelt rock, and tuneful soul.  With their open-hearted songwriting and indelible melodies, the trio reveals a rare ability to pack deep layers of feeling inside the most immediately catchy pop track. And on their new self-titled full-length they bring a more artfully minimalist sound than they’ve ever embraced before with a dynamic batch of songs exploring everything from love and loss to anxiety and regret, handling each with extraordinary attention to life’s most nuanced moments and intricate details.
The band’s inaugural release in 2009 debuted at #2 on the Billboard Digital Albums chart and climbed to #40 on the Billboard 200. Over the next few years, along with releasing The Way It Was and Overnight (which shot to the #3 spot on iTunes). Now, after a decade of touring internationally and turning out songs like “She Is Love” (#1 at iTunes), the gold-certified “Kiss Me Slowly,” “Forever and Always,” and the infectious smash single “Without You” (from 2016’s Wide Awake.) The men of Parachute have racked up a considerable amount of roadwork and honed their combustible musical chemistry and just like the songs on the albums they bring their passion to every live set.
