Parlotones: Online Bands Wanted
The Parlotones know what it takes to get their music out there. They have streaming songs available on their website and upon a first look, you know everything they have going on. This, of course, includes their Internet based campaign to find the best opening act for every city they are playing in.
Thrill Call is a website that helps artists promote shows and fans find shows easily. The band has teamed up with them to find the crème de la crème of bands in each local scene.

With their countless tweets rolling through every few minutes, @Parlotones’ official account with 23k followers, and enough Lockerz views to make your head spin, this band proves themselves “socially” savvy. It makes complete sense to rely on the people in the scenes that know it best and if fans or bands are interested, The Parlotones make this opportunity easy to find.
