Yesterday, we got to learn some super interesting things about the bandÂ ParachuteÂ when we chatted live with them and some of their fans on Crushable’s Facebook page. Before the chat, we knew all about how they’ve just released a brand new album calledÂ OvernightÂ and how they’ve toured all over the world with some really talented people. But we learned a lot more, which I’ve taken the liberty of packaging in a nice little list below. Don’t say that I never gave you any presents, okay? Because, here I am, giving you six presents, in the form of the cool things that we learned about the band.
1.Â Will’s favorite throwback song is “She Is Love.”
So, not only did the Nivea skincare national campaign really love that song, so doesÂ Will, the lead singer of the band. A fan asked what their favorite older song to sing in concert and he responded that this one is his fave!
2.Â Their dream collaboration is Paul Simon.
They told a fan that they’d love to work with Paul SimonÂ of Simon and Garfunkel one day if they were given the opportunity. I’d love to hear the results of that collab.
3.Â Their craziest tour story involves a gun and a junkyard.
If you’d like to reread that sentence for emphasis, then please be my guest. When asked about the craziest thing to happen to them while on tour, they said that they had a gun pointed at them while looking at some old airplanes. Whaaat.
4.Â They’ve got dreams of flying.
When asked what skill they would learn if they could learn any new one tomorrow, they answered that they would like to learn to fly. That’s a really convenient skill to be able to just whip out when you need it. Running late to dinner with friends? No worries guys, grab an arm each! Too tired to walk up a flight of stairs? Nottt a problem!
5.Â Their celeb crush is January Jones.
Specifically, they think she’s “a babe.” I know a certainÂ Liam HemsworthÂ who miiight agree.
6.Â They miss their beds the most when they’re away.
And their friends, too! But, like, I guess there really is no place like home, especially when it comes to the thing you have to spend a lot of hours sleeping on.
