February 2019 Newsletter
Hello everybody! Hope it’s going well with all of you.
We’ve had a fairly busy beginning to the year, with shows at Kirstenbosch, Underberg and the Randpark Golf Club.
If you saw us at Underberg you might have noticed Glen was not on stage. He had already made plans to go the UK with his fiance to watch The 1975, Frank Turner and Jimmy Eat World but we still had to the play the show. So we brought in our friend Trevor Rebello to help out on bass and backing vocals. Despite only having two weeks to prepare and one practice before the show, he did very well.
However Glen is now back and the band is hard at work in the practice room. We are learning a few more songs off our latest album, China, to start performing at shows this year.
Speaking of the new album, we are finally bringing China to the rest of the world. At the moment, the single “Can You Feel It?” is available on all streaming platforms in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, France and the Netherlands. And soon it should be available in the US and the rest of the world. Click the link below to have a listen.
(We also got a sneak peek of our physical CD which will be available in the UK and Europe soon, but more details on that later.)
We’ve got some exciting plans for the year, but for now keep your eye on our website and our Facebook events page for details of upcoming shows.
Also, if you’re interested in listening to podcasts, check out the new Parlotones podcast Paul is doing. There’s a couple of episodes up already.
And lastly, go have a look at our YouTube channel. We’re filming short 1 minute documentaries on each song off the new album, plus there’s music videos for 3 of the new songs. (And of course lots of older content, you’ll defintely find something to amuse you.)
And that’s all for now, thanks to all our new subscribers, it’s good to have you on board! Hopefully we’ll see you all soon, wherever you are in the world.
Glen, Kahn, Neil, Paul aka The Parlotones
