Sydney Northern Beaches band Stone Parade return with a new single ‘Be Someone’ officially released on iTunes TODAY! After a two year hiatus, the band are excited to be back doing what they do best, writing songs that contain driving melodies and emotionally honest lyrics.
“Since the day it was written, our new single ‘Be Someone’ has been somewhat of a personal anthem for each of us in Stone Parade. It has helped us navigate through some of the toughest times and darkest moments we’ve been through individually and collectively. To be honest in many ways I feel in debt to the song itself. It’s a song that is constantly surprising with little moments of sheer thrill mixed with moments where I find myself realizing this is without doubt the most powerful song we’ve written.” Mark Fouche
‘Be Someone’ which hit radio nationally from 21st September was written and produced by Stone Parade and mixed by Will Brierre (American Authors/Train/Birds of Tokyo) at Ballroom Studios in Los Angeles.
Stone Parade, best known for their debut hit single ‘My Generation’ which reached #17 on the ARIA charts and #1 on the AIR charts as well as their international award winning single ‘Somebody Will Miss You’ (International Songwriting Competition 2008) from their breakthrough release ’Chase the Setting Sun’ in 2008 are excited about the future and their new material. The single will be the first released off the band’s forthcoming EP, due for release early 2016.
To coincide with the release of ‘Be Someone’ the band have a great show lined up on October 8 at Mona Vale Hotel in Sydney with Aussie Rockers Thirsty Merc. This show will also be a sneak peak into their big single launch on December 2 at Rock Lily.
Lead singer, Greg Byrne sums it up best. “We want our fans to get emotions and sentiments out of our songs, not just fleeting moments of enjoyment. The moment you stop caring, it all falls apart; deteriorates but if these tunes become soundtrack songs for people, encapsulating moments of their lives, they’ll exist forever.”
‘Be Someone’ is available NOW on iTunes
The visually captivating video for the single was directed by band members Kevin and Mark Fouche and debuted this morning via Australia’s premier music site Tone Deaf.
