Rain Parade announces reunion tour

First Europe/England band dates since 1985

Featuring Matt Piucci, Steven Roback and John Thoman with their new LP: Last Rays Of A Dying Sun

Rain Parade, a key LA Paisley Underground band, are set to return with tour dates across Europe and England.

Rain Parade is a band founded in Los Angeles, California in 1981 that quickly gained notoriety as a leading member of LA’s fabled Paisley Underground music scene. The band’s signature sound combines hypnotic, melodic songwriting and 60s psychedelia-inspired instrumentation — chiming guitars, eastern-inflected motifs, multi-part vocal harmonies — with 70s punk influences and a darker lyrical approach fully informed by late 20th and early 21st century themes.

The Rain Parade’s debut album, Emergency Third Rail Power Trip, (Enigma Records US/Demon Records UK), featuring the songwriting, vocal, and instrumental talents of founding members Matt Piucci, Steven Roback, and David Roback in equal measure, was released in 1983 and is internationally recognized as a masterpiece. Rain Parade’s second album, Explosions In The Glass Palace (Enigma Records/US, Demon Records/UK), recorded after David Roback’s departure, received the same high praise as their debut, with the band’s reputation growing ever since.

Sid Griffin, leader of The Long Ryders has said: “We were in the Paisley Underground with Rain Parade back in the 1980s… Explosions In The Glass Palace is and will forever be the BEST recording from a Paisley Underground band, be it us, The Dream Syndicate, The Bangles, The Three O’Clock or whomever.”

Guitarist John Thoman joined Piucci and Roback in 1984 and went on to record on the band’s third and fourth LPs, Crashing Dream and Beyond The Sunset - Live in Japan (Island Records 1985/86) before the band broke up the following year.

Since then, the band’s reputation and diehard following has only grown, which led them to reuniting in the US for several well-received one-off shows in California, Atlanta, and Austin, and eventually recording 3 songs for the 3x4 album (Yep Roc 2018) with their friends The Bangles, The Dream Syndicate and The Three O’Clock. And most recently recording this year’s new album, Last Rays Of A Dying Sun, which manages to sound both like a lost classic and the groundbreaking work of unknown new artist, emerging from their secret lair with a record ready to change the world. As MOJO puts it, “there’s little rain on their new parade.”

Last Rays Of A Dying Sun features the original 80s members Piucci, Roback and Thoman alongside guitarist Derek See (the Gentle Cycle / Dean & Britta (Galaxy 500) / Chocolate Watchband), drummer Stephan Junca (The Hellenes, Billy Talbot, Boatclub), with vocalists Debbi and Vicki Peterson (The Bangles). Last Rays Of A Dying Sun is out on Flatiron Recordings, on their imprint Label 51. Flatiron Recordings.

Support: First Boy On the Moon. Indierock/Powerpop-band från Malmö frontat av amerikanen David Pedroza som växte upp mitt i Paisley Underground-vågen. Bandet är aktuella med sin nya LP " Cyber Girl".
