BAND SET TO ENTER THE STUDIO NEXT WEEK TO COMPLETE NEW ALBUM
Los Angeles, CA - May 7, 2013 - South African rockers, The Parlotones are closing out their spring "Shake It Up" Tour with a free stream of their Los Angeles show at the world famous Roxy tonight at 10PM PST. The concert will stream on Evnt Live (https://www.evntlive.com/#/event/1000057), a brand new cutting edge digital concert venue that allows you to stream live and on-demand concerts. The Roxy show rounds out The Parlotones first tour of the US since relocating to Los Angeles in February. They will be entering the studio in their new city next week to complete recording their upcoming studio album, Stand Like Giants, scheduled for release this Fall.
The US tour was in support of their most recent release, an EP entitled, Shake It Up. The current single, of the same name has already begun to receive support at radio and the accompanying video premiered recently on MTV. The clip is a unique and exciting departure from the group's usual theatrical music videos as it was filmed during a farewell parade through the streets of Johannesburg the night prior to their departure from South Africa to the US.

|THE PARLOTONES - SHAKE IT UP|
The Parlotones have truly given up all of the comforts of home and their incredible accomplishments and successes to immerse themselves in the US music scene. Going from selling out 20,000 person arenas to playing clubs, has given the band a chance to get back to their early roots and work from the ground up. Already conquering multiple international markets, the band has quickly become recognizable throughout the world but really began to make their mark in the US upon touring here over the last two years. The response and support they received from those visits were the catalyst for the big move and they've already been welcomed with open arms.
About The Parlotones: In their native South Africa, there truly is no rock band bigger than The Parlotones. On top of the headlining Coca Cola Dome show, the Johannesburg-bred quartet have performed at the World Cup Kickoff Concert to an audience of one billion spectators in 2010, and were handpicked by Coldplay to open the British band's stadium shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town in 2011. Also last year, The Parlotones staged an original rock theater production, Dragonflies and Astronauts, which was broadcast live around the world in 3D via DIRECTV and in 2D on Facebook. (The 3D broadcast was so well received Stateside that the satellite provider scheduled 100 re-airings, while more than half of the worldwide viewership on Facebook hailed from the U.S.) Dragonflies and Astronauts wove a narrative through the band's catalog, including 16 songs that were Top 40 hits in South Africa.
