Purple Heart Parade are set to release their second EP ‘Lonestar’ on September 7th through Club AC30. Today we premiere the video for the haunting reverb drenched majesty of lead track ‘Mission Hills’, watch it below.
The song is about ‘emotional distance in a relationship but also the loss of a close friend, a victim of the tragic Manchester Arena attack. The band don’t just capture the sound of their hometown but also carry a part of it with them in a very personal way’
The release follows on from a number of supports and festival appearances for the Manchester band alongside Temples, Toy, Swervedriver, The Telescopes, The Vacant Lots, as well as securing slots at Liverpool Psych Fest, The Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling and Portugal’s Reverence Festival.
‘Lonestar EP’ was recorded at Perry Vale Studios by Pat Collier (The Jesus and Mary Chain, X-Ray Spex) and conveys a number of personal themes from depression and grief to domestic violence. The band tells us; “We wear our hearts on our sleeve and pour that into our music. Everything is down to real experiences, real music about real life”.
