“Based in Northampton MA since 2011, The Sun Parade has been steadily creating a buzz in New England and a grassroots following of fans across the country. In 2012 The Sun Parade released a full length LP “Yossis” and the single “Need You By My Side”, a regional hit voted the #1 song by WRSI 93.9 The River. In 2014, they released the joyful pop EP “Heart’s Out” and toured the road, including a host of shows with their pals Lake Street Dive.” Click the album art purchase “Heart’s Out” from The Sun Parade’s Bandcamp page or buy through the Greylock Glass’s affiliate link with Amazon.com.
