PURPLE HEART PARADE

Returning to Psych Fest following a highly-praised showing in 2014, Mancunian space rock quintet PPURPLE HEART PARADE make the short journey down the M62. Fronted by charismatic lead singer Peter Cowap, Purple Heart Parade have become one of the North West’s most fêted psych collectives, courtesy of a series of standout support slots (The Warlocks, Swervedriver, Nightbeats) and scores of festival bookings (Kendal Calling, Reverence Festival Cosmosis).
Bringing together beautifully uncoiling Verve-esque guitar motifs with shoegazing textures and stargazing vocals, the band’s excellent debut single ‘Painting Pictures/Starfucker Blues’ found its way into Anton Newcombe’s record collection, with the legendary likes of Nick McCabe (Verve) and Mark Gardener (Ride) also singing the band’s praises.
