Nashville, Tenn. (January 30, 2013) – Nashville-based alternative buzz band Darling Parade has released “Ghost,” the first single from their upcoming full-length album Battle Scars & Broken Hearts. Darling Parade was featured on Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart, MTVu, VH1 and their music has been showcased on ABC Family’s “The Lying Game,” the CW’s “Flygirls,” Syfy’s “Stargate Universe” and Showtime’s “Shameless,” just to name a few.  Battle Scars & Broken Hearts is the band’s first full-length album, following a campaign to raise money for the project on the popular funding platform Kickstarter. “Ghost” can be purchased on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ghost-single/id592314650?ls=1

Formed in early 2007 against the humble backdrop of fields and farmhouses, Darling Parade came to fruition after lead vocalist Kristin Kearns asked Nate McCoy
and his previous group to play a local show in southern Illinois.  She
was only 15 at the time, but even then, had a way of captivating an
audience.  After adding drummer Casey Conrad via Craigslist and bassist Dustin McCoy, the group was complete.

After a self-titled EP, and 2010’s What You Want, 2011 brought the release of the band’s 3rd EP, Until We Say It’s Over, and landed the band the #8 spot on Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart.  The first single “Never Wrong” received airplay on both MTVu and VH1.  It also included, “Remember,” featuring guest vocals by Anberlin frontman, Stephen Christian.

Riding on the success of Until We Say It’s Over in the spring of 2012, Darling Parade landed their first national tour with NBC’s “The Voice” winner Cassadee Pope
(Hey Monday) and set out to make their mark across the country.  The
band quickly followed up with a national headlining tour, and then
headed home to regroup.

Shortly after returning home, they knew it was time to do something
they had not yet attempted—record a full-length album. Lacking the funds
to embark on such an endeavor, the fans stepped up in a huge way, fully
backing a Kickstarter effort to raise $16,000 to fund the recording of the new album.

Darling Parade went through several life-changing situations
throughout the course of a few years, as bands do from time to time. The
group, along with their long-time producer and friend, Jon King (Augustana, Throwing Gravity, 3 Pill Morning), retreated to a remote cabin in Western Ky., to clear their minds and make sense of the chaos.  Out of that adversity, Battle Scars & Broken Hearts was
born.  Written entirely over a period of only a few weeks, it
represents a snapshot in time of the band coming to terms with some of
their weakest moments and finding the will to rise above them.

“The whole album has a common theme of overcoming struggle,” says Kearns.

“It’s really about realizing that no one has control over your life but you, and moving past negativity.”

The next four months were spent working day in and day out in the
studio.  “We really took a different approach with this album, we took
the time to explore every tone, and took a lot of chances” says McCoy.

The band made huge strides forward musically as well, melding all of
their influences to create a sound that’s infectious, refreshing and
all their own.   In-your-face guitars and relentless drumming dominate
the album, while Kristin’s thunder in a bottle voice can only be
described as a beautifully controlled chaos.

Partnering with King’s Nashville based label, Page 2 Music, Battle Scars & Broken Hearts will be released world-wide April 2, 2013.
