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

The band was founded in Los Angeles, California in 1981 that quickly gained notoriety as a leading member of LA’s fabled Paisley Underground music scene. Their 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 recognised 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.
