TESS PARKS – ” And Those Who Were Seen Dancing “

Posted: March 4, 2022 in MUSIC

Following years of international touring and a lengthy list of critically-acclaimed collaborations with Brian Jonestown Massacre’s Anton Newcombe in recent years (most recently the duo’s self-titled 2018 LP), the new album will be Parks’ first full-length solo offering since her much-loved debut album, ‘Blood Hot’, was released back in 2013 on Alan McGee’s 359 Music label.

I am very excited to announce that my new album ‘And Those Who Were Seen Dancing’ will be released May 20th 2022 on Fuzz Club and Hand Drawn Dracula!. This album was pieced together over time in London, Toronto and Los Angeles with friends and family between August 2019 and March 2021 but some of these songs date back over a decade in some form or another. I can’t wait to finally share them with you.

As well as black and coloured vinyl, CD and cassette, there is a beautiful Dinked Edition available to pre-order from select UK indie stores that comes on clear vinyl with red, blue and yellow splatter in a hand-numbered gatefold sleeve with a bonus track flexi-disc and 60 x 60cm poster. Levitation also have an exclusive US edition on transparent red vinyl with blue and yellow splatter.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to my family; to the band: Rian O’Grady, Ruari Meehan, Francesco Perini, Michael Sutton; to Andrew McGill, Josh Korody, Luz Gallardo, Raissa Pardini, Manny Nieto and Pete Maher; to Casper and Jack at Fuzz Club and James at Hand Drawn Dracula for making this project possible, and all of the friends and family who provided emotional strength and support along the way – you know who you are and I would be nothing and nowhere without you.
