Paralandra remains on the road leading up to their much anticipated full length album slated for Fall of 2021.

THE SHOW

Paralandra is known for their high energy while on stage. They have created an intentional and orchestrated show for all viewers to enjoy, not only to listen to, but to watch. Each song, transition, key, tempo, and crowd interaction is carefully thought out and designed to create an entertainment experience that will never be forgotten.

Their sound is often compared to bands like Halestorm, Evanescense, Alter Bridge, and Foo Fighters.
