IT BEGINS! The first ever full length album from Parlour Bells, Waylaid in the Melée is imminent. The work began in 2014 and faced some challenges along the way, but the wait has paid off. Our PledgeMusic campaign has been wildly successful and is the reason we were able to vault this record over the finish line (and the campaign is still on for a few more days!) THANK YOU PLEDGERS! The hard copies are here and they look and sound amazing! Parlour Bells is having a busy week as we march toward the release celebration on 11/18/17 at Lizard Lounge in Cambridge, MA. Our leadoff single Red, White and Bruised received a wonderful review from Michael Marotta at Vanyaland. We recently made a visit to Boston Emissions with Anngelle Wood (you can vote for us in the local song poll this week!) at 100.7FM WZLX and premiered the album in its entirety. Do617 featured a 5 questions with Parlour Bells and offered a ticket / CD giveaway (they asked some GREAT questions), and we just dropped by 91.5FM WMFO.
Advanced tickets for the 11/18/17 release show at Lizard Lounge are HIGHLY recommended! 8:30PM Doors. 9:15PM Gene Dante and the Future Starlets / 10:15PM Parlour Bells / 11:15PM Set Fire
Summer has found us at last and we are ready to celebrate with you! THIS Friday night 6/27 at TT the Bear’s Place in Cambridge we have assembled an absolute monster of a lineup. Parlour Bells is teaming up with Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, Muy Cansado and Future Carnivores to bring you THE SUMMER OF LOVE show. If you are unfamiliar with any of these acts, do yourself a favor and check them out because they put on some of the BEST live shows in Boston and beyond.
And after that, Parlour Bells head to Q Division to begin work on our third release, songs from which you will likely hear for the first time on Friday night. Titles from the first session of recordings include “Celebrities On Ice” and “We Keep Coming Back.” The early reception from those who have caught the new material in recent shows has been wildly enthusiastic and we cannot wait to set it to record.
No shows booked for the rest of the season, so 6/27 at TTs could be our ONLY appearance until Fall!
