New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 2018 has been a big year for Missouri rockers, Paralandra, as they announced signing to Legend Recordings and going back into the studio. Starting off June with a bang, the band is excited to release their highly anticipated EP "Ascension" (engineered/produced by Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris). The follow up to their Billboard charting (#1 Heatseekers) record, "Ascension," will hook you in from the first note. Vocalist Casandra Carson's tremendous pipes mixed with the guitar driven rock will have you turning up the volume and singing along.

Often compared to top notch female fronted bands, Halestorm and Evanscense, Paralandra strives to make a name for themselves and is on their way to joining the ranks of these infamous acts. Taking inspiration from greats like Foo Fighters, Paramore and Red Hot Chili Peppers to name a few, while putting their own spin on the infectious pop rock. Paralandra is extremely proud of the hard work that went into the record as Carson shared, "This is the most authentic Paralandra recording yet! These songs are the best representations fo the raw emotions myself, Paul and Nick were feeling while writing together in the studio. Nick Sampson truly captured the sound and energy of what you see live and we couldn't be more excited to release this to our fans."

Paralandra has soldifed a name for themselves for their energetic live show and is currently on their Spring 2018 tour in support of the new record which included an appearance at Rocklahoma sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in rock. You can catch the band on their remaining dates and Paralandra looks forward to announcing more dates in 2018.

"Ascension" is available now on all digital platforms with physical merch at the official Legend Recordings online store.

About Paralandra:
From the beginning, hard rock band, Paralandra, decided to concentrate on creating pure, heartfelt music, no matter how it came out. They have not wavered from this approach, and continue to strive to provide a product that is a sincere and unique expression of themselves, both lyrically and musically. The band started in the summer of 2013 as, Casandra Carson (lead vocal and guitar), decided to create a band to perform the songs she had begun writing. Everything clicked when reunited with Casandra's former highschool friend, Nick Gray, who also had been writing and wishing to perform in an original rock band. Within less than 2 months, the newly formed band began playing live and recording. Paralandra's first 12-song CD, Rise Up, was released in June of 2014, and reorders were a necessity to keep up with demand from sales at live performances.

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. They soon began to enjoy more widespread and high profile shows, including opening for Fuel, Hinder, Scott Weiland, Wayland, Art of Dying, Lacey Sturm, TRAPT, and more, as well as playing to local crowds as large as 7,500. They have also been invited to numerous showcases across the country, including playing in David Ivory's (multi Grammy winning producer of Halestorm, The Roots, and more) showcase at the Millennium Music Conference in 2015 and SXSW in Austin, Texas in March of 2016. They have been blessed to receive many appreciated accolades in their still fresh musical journey, such as being nominated "Best Original Band" by the readers of 417 Magazine, "Best Musical Performance" on the late night talk show, The Mystery Hour, "Year's Best Band Performance" by Ozarks LIVE! on KOZL, a CBS television network, #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, as well as consistently holding a top-10 spot on the Reverbnation Rock Charts.

They are now fresh off recording a new 5-song EP with Nick Sampson of Metro 37 Studios, and look to begin touring nationwide and booking several major festivals to support their March release. They are currently managed by CB Entertainment and look for 2018 to be their best year yet! Their sound is often compared to bands Halestorm, Evanescense, Alter Bridge, and Foo Fighters.
