We Demand Parachutes exists to transpose experiences via songwriting. New England’s emerging Indie/Rock band was incepted originally as a writing project, with one member deployed overseas with the United States Military, and the other two working in live sound. This entirely self-produced and engineered trio is vying to cement a position on the throne in the indie rock kingdom.
The group blends elements of alternative and “Blink-182” era pop-punk with the emotional and incisive lyrics from front man Kevin McCord. Drummer Ben Shumaker, inspired by the likes of Andrew Isbell of “The Band CAMINO” stays innovative behind the kit, combining electronic and acoustic elements seamlessly. Bassist/programmer Seth Richardson imposes his synth wave roots to provide a solid foundation that is reminiscent of both “The Killers” and “Shallou” and adds complexity to the driving guitar chords.
The band emerged on the scene in mid 2019 with their debut “Cameraman” and have charged through four successful singles to date. Their latest release “Upstate,” foreshadows a 2020 filled with dynamic musical growth, engaging live performances and new tunes. On September 18, We Demand Parachutes will release Ketamine, their fifth single.
