Northern Irish Newcomers Tease Debut Album Coming 2023.
Derry-based Northern Irish punk newcomers PARKER are pleased to reveal their debut single Never Miss .
The band will be touring throughout the summer in support of the single, including appearances at Wonk Fest in London, Stendhal Festival in Ireland, and a series of headline shows across Ireland.
Commenting on the track, front man Dylan Bradley says: “Never Miss is the first song I wrote for this band, it’s the first song we learned together, it’s the song that we’ve opened every show we’ve played so far with, and it’s the first song I think of when I think of PARKER. I feel like it makes perfect sense that this is the first thing we release into the world.”
PARKER was born out of the frustrations of the pandemic in 2020. After returning from a tour cut short due to COVID, singer and guitarist Dylan Bradley began writing and recording material in his bedroom with the aim of starting a new band.
Once the songs started to come together Dylan began working on them with drummer Michael Brown, the two of whom had been playing in punk bands together since 2012. Not long after, former tour buddy and long-time friend Eoghan Donegan signed up on bass, and the band spent the early part of 2021 rehearsing their songs in preparation for their debut live outing that September.
Since then, displaying a trojan work ethic in the time-honoured tradition of ‘proper rock bands’, the band have played relentlessly across Ireland, supporting the likes of New Pagans, WONK UNIT and Cherym, and completed their first UK tour in December of 2021.
In January 2022 PARKER entered the studio to begin recording their debut album with producer Cahir O’Doherty (New Pagans, Fighting With Wire, Jetplane Landing) and engineer Allan McGreevy (New Pagans, The Rupture Dogs), with further details of the album and new music announced later this year.
