The Paranormals

The Paranormals Album Release Show at The High Watt 7.5

 Few bands put a Southern spin on classic rock as The Paranormals. The East Nashvillians have a 90's-minded approach to clean and tight songwriting, attacked with enough raw energy as a pack of dirty punk rockers.  The band is about to release the follow-up to their 2012 debut "American Spirit" with "Tomahawk" on July 5th.  The release show will be at The High Watt, with friends The Cunning and Commitment Bells joining the lineup, but opportunities to pick up an advanced copy and see the band get sweaty and gross before that abound: they're playing fooBar on June 12th, and The 5 Spot June 18th. The fresh, urgent clarity and poignant lyrics of single "Carolina" are just a teaser of the overwhelming depth of their new material.  Listen, enjoy, and attend; you got three chances.  -Terra James-Jura
