Atlanta, Georgia: Home to CNN, Coca-Cola, and the world’s worst
airport experience; a city burned in effigy during the Civil War, and
again each Summer since – once home to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., Hank Aaron, and the impossibly annoying Ryan Seacrest.
Atlanta, standing uniquely liberal in the proper “red south,” has
always had a nasty habit of breeding turbulent music and art,
therefore it seems only proper that a band like Nerd Parade make its
Nerd Parade’s dense history is likely to invoke the spirit of
Fleetwood Mac or King Crimson, as they are a tumultuous organization
that has never rested on laurels, never gotten comfortable, never been
the same band twice. From the low-fidelity electronic pop of their
debut, A Delicate bashing, through the expansive southern progressive
experimentalism of The Span of A Life, Nerd Parade has always toyed
with the possibility of being the first band on earth that was
completely unhindered by genre, unapologetic in their decision making,
and most importantly, unfaltering in devotion to their craft.
Nerd Parade, newly re-formed and re-tooled, stands at the precipice of
yet another stunning transformation. A new album, Daylight Saving Time
has pushed the band further into uncharted space. Drawing heavily on
their own vicious cycle of deconstruction and assembly, the band has
managed to make a tremendously poignant, embattled, yet uplifting
narrative that spans epochs in rock homage. Completely self-recorded
and produced, as all Nerd Parade albums are, Daylight Saving Time
Burns bright and echoes in the infinite unlike any other effort by the
band. Muscular, mature, faithful – it stands as guardian over the
collective output of this eclectic group of musicians.
The band is currently writing new music, and plans are in the works
for a 2011 Tour
