Planet Parade | Music Artists on Indie Accent

Planet Parade

c. 2009 | ORIGIN: MAYNOOTH, IRELAND

Planet Parade have been playing in bands together since childhood. In the last 2 years they swapped instruments and changed their musical approach. The band consists of Michael Hopkins (vocals, guitar), Ronan Kilduff (bass) and Andrew Lloyd (drums). They are an energetic, off-kilter/ melodic/ alternative rock band whose strength lies in their live performances. Planet Parade cut their live teeth at the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival, October 2009 in Dublin to rave reviews. Their debut 4 track E.P Ghosts To People was self-released at the end of 2009 and showcases the band's idiosyncratic sound and wide ranging musicality. Play Fair and Cut the Chord, from the EP, received heavy daytime airplay on Irish national radio and are still playlisted on Dublin's Phantom FM. Since Planet Parade’s first live shows in 2009 they have opened for the likes of Passion Pit, Ellie Goulding, Hockey, Wild Beasts, Surfer Blood, Bell X1 and Delorentos. They also played the Oxegen festival in Co Kildare this year. (Last Fm)
