Austin, Texas indie-rock/garage-punk outfit Parker Woodland have officially announced the release of their debut EP, The World's On Fire (and We Still Fall in Love), out everywhere on February 5th.
Parker Woodland is a band born both by chance and by calling. What began with neighbors jamming in a small church soon evolved into a powerful, sweat-soaked live experience in packed rock clubs. At the center of it all is songwriter/vocalist/bassist Erin Walter, a Unitarian Universalist minister and activist in the Girls Rock Camp scene, unabashedly expressive frontwoman for whom Parker Woodland represents the realization of a lifelong dream.
“A big part of Parker Woodland is about creating community, everybody jumping up on stage together, grinning, flailing,” says Walter. “Having a crew to make music and art with is life-giving. I’ve always dreamed of songwriting, and something about playing with these friends, at this time, finally brought it out of me, fiercely.”
To record their debut EP, the trio teamed up with renowned producer/engineer Jonas Wilson at his studio The Pink Room and cut the whole record in a single day in August 2019. “This EP is a ‘seize the moment’ record,” says Walter. “We recorded it about a week before we played our first show, so it really captures the moment that Parker Woodland was born.”
