Blank Parody are an alternative-rock band hailing from Staffordshire and the West Midlands. In 2014 stepbrothers Liam Howard (guitar) and Connor Hodgkiss (drums) teamed up with their childhood friend Joby Fitzgerald (vocals) after he parted with his previous band, Cytota. In 2015 Liam’s fellow University of Birmingham student, Freddie Shaw (bass), from Blackburn Lancashire, joined the band and their line-up was complete.
After an intense period of song-writing Blank Parody recorded ten tracks, four of which will be released in Autumn 2016 on the debut EP ‘A Tension’. These were produced by Jim Pinder (Treehouse Studios, Chesterfield) who’s engineering credits include work on the albums ‘Be Human’ by Fightstar and ‘Venom’ by Bullet For My Valentine. Jim Pinder has also produced some amazing work by rising alternative-rock bands Inherit The Stars, Shvpes and Opheon.
