Finnish post-punk pioneers MustaParaati return after 34 years
Finnish post-punk legends Musta Paraati will be releasing their first new album in 34 years this October 19th. This album will be supported with a full-scale international tour starting in November.The Black Parade LP features 11 tracks in English. 10 of these are new and The Leader is a new English rendition of their song Johtaja, which released as a single in 1983. The band is previewing this track ahead of the album release.
Highly regarded as Finland's premiere post-punk / goth rockers, Musta Paraati was making music before their countrymen Russian Love, Two Witches, and The 69 Eyes. With their own unique sound that is upbeat and with an old school punk attitude, their music gained them cult status in their native Finland, their albums being considered prized contributions to record collections, and also led to touring with other cult bands like Lords of the New Church and Hanoi Rocks.
