On December 15, 2012, Parlour Bells formally celebrates the release of their second EP, Thank God for the Night. The release arrives at the end of what has been a breakout year for the band. One that would see them through the Rock n’ Roll Rumble and one that would give them the honor of helping send off one of our revered terrestrial radio stations at a historic night at the Paradise Rock Club for the We Want the Airwaves: WFNX Tribute event. The radio-inspired anthem “Airwaves,” borne out of the media tumult of the Clear Channel acquisition of 101.7, was even recognized as a serious Song of the Year contender by The Boston Herald, and it leads off the new record. Thank God for the Night includes six new songs, and among them is the steamy “You Don’t Wear That Dress, The Dress Wears You” featuring the great Dana Colley of Morphine on saxophone.
Primarily a digital release, the band felt unlimited by traditional design, and used the opportunity to offer a full multimedia package. In addition to six new tracks, fans downloading the new EP will receive a Thank God for the Night digital storybook featuring over 20 pages of photography by Derek Kouyoumjian and illustrated by Nicole Anguish of Daykamp Creative. Plus, they receive a 45 minute concert film, Parlour Bells, Live at Redstar Union.
And this Sunday, during the kickoff of their promotional push for TGFTN, the band appeared on Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood on 100.7 WZLX to announce that a portion of all sales for the EP through December 15, 2012 would go to the DCF Kids Fund for Anngelle Wood’s Spectacular Gift Drive, a two night event that culminates with Parlour Bells’ big 12/15 show at The Sinclair in Harvard Square with Oldjack, Mellow Bravo and Gentlemen Hall. Tickets for the show are available now through Ticketmaster.
Thank God for the Night has been called “a bedtime story for adults who never go to bed” by Michael Marotta, Music Editor of The Boston Phoenix.
