This beast finished the drum tracks for the entire upcoming album yesterday. He's happy. We're happy. Maybe you're happy too?

Making our first gig announcement of 2017: Aronnesrocken 2017, almost as far north as you can get - and one of our favorite festivals ever. Stay tuned for further updates, dear beliebers.

This is our life, and it's ending one album at a time. Just checking, how would you guys feel about helping us with another little crowdfunding effort?

So we had a few visitors the other day. The eclectic and talented ladies of Volve Vokal helped put a few finishing touches on our upcoming single. Beware: Loud-ish.

Dear Mr. Cohen

The news of your departure is heartbreaking. The world is a smaller place without you and I am eternally grateful for the brief moment we shared. To talk to you and to be in your presence was one of the greatest experiences of my life, so thank you for your divine music and lilies of snow that shaped my life, and inspired me to become a better person. I hope you are in a peaceful place now, in a dream of Hungarian lanterns, in the mist of some sweet afternoon.

New single: Madeleine Crumbles

Today we bring you the most exalted of news: The first single from our fourth studio album has finally been released. Madeleine Crumbles is a five minute exploration of symphonic pop melancholia, touching some musical realms we haven’t really ventured into before. That’s where we’re always most comfortable – somewhere we’ve haven’t been before. You can find the song on Spotify or any kind of service you may find preferrable. The song features Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift) on guest vocals, plus a host of other guest musicians, and has been mixed by Yngve Sætre. Lyrics here.

Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics!

Some of you may have noticed that this website has gotten a bit of a new look lately.

It is very much a work in progress, and the makeover is nowhere near complete. But do note that we’ve finally gotten around to publishing all the official Major Parkinson lyrics.

A lot of you have been asking us about releasing these things, and while we’ve been amused by all the wrong lyrics that have been put out on the internet over the years, we kind of figured we had to set the record straight. We know it’s kind of hard to decipher what we’re saying at times.

So, go on, enjoy yourself, now there’s no excuse for singing the wrong lyrics.
