Parachute For Gordo Sign To Rose Coloured Records

17th January 2017

Aldershot-based experimental trio Parachute for Gordo are extremely pleased to announce that they will release their 3rd album Possibility of Not on Rose Coloured Records on 13th March 2017.

Possibility of Not also sees the group expand into visuals for the first time, with a suite of music videos to accompany every song on the record that also combine to create a feature-length short film.

As a fitting launch for the record the band will be playing a triumphant release party on Saturday 18th March at The West End Centre in Aldershot – an ambitious show which will include a full art exhibition and a performance of film in full with the band playing the score live.

The collection of videos that accompany the record were also produced entirely by the band over the course of a year, culminating in a visual album that reflects and builds on the themes of their instrumental music to make something beautiful, irreverent and joyously experimental. The entire visual project was created in their local area, with local venues and people, and made with a bank-busting budget of exactly £0.

Bassist John Harvey says of the project; This was the hardest we’ve ever worked on an album. Each film was a unique idea that needed to work by itself and also as part of this ‘visual album’. It’s not a linear story at all, but there are thematic, geographic and visual cues that tie the films together.  The dynamics and pacing of both the album and the collection of films were very important to us.”

An independent rock band from the thriving cultural capital of Hampshire, Parachute For Gordo make post-rock with a great big ecstatic grin on its stupid, sweaty face. They have so far played shows with the likes of The 1975, The Physics House Band, Fight Like Apes, The Xcerts, Jamie Lenman and Hannah Clark.

2016 saw the band on tour around the UK, a BBC Introducing live session, an appearance at Always the Sun Festival and high praise from underground music tastemakers like Echoes and Dust and 7bitarcade.
