Derry, Northern Ireland melodic punk newcomers PARKER have revealed their latest single ‘Superhero’ which is set for release on 5th December 2022.
Produced by Cahir O’Doherty (New Pagans, Fighting With Wire, Jetplane Landing) the new track is a classic old-school pop-punk breakup song in a Drive-Thru Records tradition that’s already becoming a firm live favourite with fans.
Commenting on the song, singer and guitarist Dylan Bradley says: “I wrote this song as the second of two songs detailing a fictional breakup from two different perspectives. The first song didn’t make the final cut but Superhero certainly did, and I’m very glad of that as it’s one of my personal favourite tracks of ours.”
PARKER were 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, Bradley 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 and the UK, supporting the likes of New Pagans, WONK UNIT, Cherym, The Last Mile, and Fighting With Wire.
