(July 20, 2009 – New York, NY) Mercury Records group Parachute, the Virginia-based band whose debut album LOSING SLEEP rocketed to #1 on iTunes’ Overall Album chart upon its release in the spring, will head out on an extended late-summer/fall tour of North America with Bay Area acoustic rockers Secondhand Serenade – immediately followed by an even bigger tour with two-time Grammy winning mega-platinum artist Kelly Clarkson.

The 23-city tour with Secondhand Serenade will open September 3rd at House of Blues in Las Vegas, and wrap up October 4th at The Cabooze in Minneapolis. The 28-city tour with Kelly Clarkson will open October 6th at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, and conclude December 13th at Hard Rock Live – Seminole in Hollywood, Florida. (Please see all tour dates below.)

LOSING SLEEP was released digitally on May 12th (one week prior to its release in the physical marketplace) and immediately took over the top spot at iTunes. The album built on the success of its first single, “She Is Love,” moves to top 15 at Hot AC. The video for “She Is Love” continues its run on the VH1 Top 20 Countdown. To view the clip, go to the Island Records website www.weareparachute.com . A deluxe version of LOSING SLEEP will go up August 4th adding the video, rare B sides, acoustic versions, and live tracks.

In March, Parachute was the “Adult Artist To Watch” at Clear Channel’s New! site. “She Is Love” has also been heard on the CW’s 90210, the WB’s One Tree Hill, and the CBS Early Show in May, where the band performed it live. The song was featured in Nivea Body’s Smooth Sensations tv commercials, which will re-launch in September.
