Blank Parody

In 2014, stepbrothers Liam Howard and drummer Connor Hodgkiss joined forces with childhood friend Joby Fitzgerald following his departure from previous band Cytota.

Following months of songwriting, they completed the lineup by recruiting university friend Freddie Shaw on bass.

After an intense period of rehearsing and recording demos, they stepped into Treehouse Studios in Chesterfield where they recorded ten songs produced by Jim Pinder.

Earlier this year, Blank Parody’s debut single ‘Dark Pretenders’ was met with a passonate reception amongst media and fans alike. It was Number One during April in the Unsigned Top Charts, and was selected by a judging panel, including NME’s then New Music Editor Matt Wilkinson, as one of ten tracks to make the shortlist
in the Record Store Day associated ‘Berwick Street Calling’ competition.

The same month Blank Parody also had their first spin on Kerrang! Radio, with Johnny Doom showing his support for the band following their appearance on his television show Amp’d.
