Derry, Northern Ireland melodic punk trio Parker have announced their return with their new single, Generic Indie Bands. The band have also just announced a run of Irish & UK headline tour dates in support of the single, with tickets on sale now. The single is the first taste of new material since the release of their well-received 2023 debut album, Never Let This Go. Name checking the likes of Beastie Boys, Billy Corgan and Rivers Cuomo as influences whilst pouring faux-scorn on “big-fringe tight-jeans disco music” and calling out The Courteeners and Oasis, Generic Indie Bands showcases Parker‘s perfect ear for melody and razor-sharp Irish wit perfectly. Produced by Caolán Austin and engineered by Rocky O’Reilly, the single was recorded at Start Together Studios, mixed by Caolan Austin, and mastered by Matt Colton, with additional synth, programming, piano, vocals and organ by Caolán Austin.

“‘Generic Indie Bands’ is a tongue in cheek diss track about a bunch of bands I have a love/hate relationship with…as well as the industry as a whole that I have a love/hate relationship with! It doesn’t take itself too seriously, yet it’s purely from the heart. It’s the first song in what I consider the future of Parker to be.” (singer & guitarist Dylan Bradley)
