Multi-platinum selling artists from Johannesburg, South Africa headlining North America for the first time.

From their origins in Johannesburg, South Africa, the rock 4-piece have achieved multiplatinum-selling status in their home country, selling more records than Coldplay, The Killers and Oasis together. They are now set to conquer these shores with their darkly romantic lyrics, atmospheric pop structures and ambitious live show which have been earning a rave response from fans and critics alike. Their recent secret warm-up show in Kentish Town, London attracted nearly double the capacity of the venue, forcing the band to access the stage by climbing over the bar.

In their home country, the band’s profile is such that they were chosen to play the 2009 Presidential Inauguration, Africa Day and at Live Earth. Their innovative, big-production music videos have been nominated for MTV awards and The Parlotones won two awards at the prestigious ISC (International Song Contest), in the US, judged by the likes of Robert Smith, Tom Waits and Rob Thomas.
