Morning Parade has released the dates for their 2014 tour around the West Coast. Starting February 8th, the five piece alternative rock band will hit the road, stopping in Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

The band consists of Steve Sparrow on lead vocals, guitar and piano, Andrew Hayes on drums, Phil Titus on bass and backup vocals, Ben Giddings on piano, synths and backup vocals, and Chad Thomas on lead guitar.

The band originated back in 2007 in Harlow, Essex, a few years after they met at Harlow College in 2003.

In 2010, Morning Parade signed to Astralwerks in the US and EMI's Parlophone in the UK, a record label that has produced famous acts including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Coldplay. The debu album gained much success in the United States, for 'Headlights' spent 37 weeks on the US Alternaive Charts, and with television debuts on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

After their debut release, Morning Parade spent some time touring around both the US and Europe, along with performing at festivals around the world.

The band has headlined shows of their own, and supported well-known acts including Friendly Fires, Walk the Moon, Silversun Pickups, 30 Seconds to Mars, Smashing Pumpkins, The Wombats and The Kooks - among many others.

This year, Morning Parade will be performing at a few venues along the West Coast while on their winter tour, and be sure to stay tuned for more news on releases and added performance dates from the band!
