//PURPLE HEART PARADE
Manchester’s burgeoning post-industrial bubble was the starry embryonic sac for PURPLE HEART PARADE to spawn their shoegaze fantasies, with Louder Than War dubbing them “a band destined for the stars” and The NME professing admiration for their “squalid feedback”, whilst publications such as “Metro” and broadcasters like the BBC have all been purring at the Mancunian cosmic waves.
Following support slots and festival appearances alongside Temples,Toy, Sean Lennon, Luna, Swervedriver, Night Beats, The Telescopes, ,Pink Mountaintops, The Vacant Lots, as well as securing slots at Liverpool Psych Fest in 2014 & 2017, The Secret Garden Party, Kendal Calling & Reverence ( Portugal ) Festivals.
The band’s meteoric rise is also gaining interest from highly esteemed peers, with noted admirers of the band including the likes of Nick McCabe, Mark Gardener, Simone Butler (Primal Scream) and Sean Lennon to name but a few.
