OVERNIGHT, the third album by Charlottesville, Virginia band Parachute, released August 13th on Mercury Records, debuted at 15 on the Billboard Album Chart and inside the Top 5 on the iTunes Overall chart this week. The debut was bolstered by an explosive performance on The Tonight Show of their single "Can't Help," co-written by Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). The video for "Can't Help" just premiered on VEVO this past week.

Parachute kicked off their summer tour in support of Overnight with a sold out release date gig at New York's Irving Plaza. The 4-week, 30-show U.S. tour wraps up on September 22nd in Dallas, TX at House of Blues.

Overnight follows up Parachute's second album, The Way It Was (2011), which rose to the #1 Rock Album and #2 Overall Album spots at iTunes. The Album contained the #1 iTunes Rock Song "Kiss Me Slowly" (co-written with Grammy┼Ż winners Lady Antebellum) and the Top 15 QC hit "Something To Believe In" - which was played during the 2011 Rose Bowl football classic, went on to become and ESPN staple, and was performed by Parachute on their first The Tonight Show appearance.

Parachute's debut album Losing Sleep, shot to #1 on the iTunes and Amazon digital albums charts and spun off the Top 15 Hot AC single "She Is Love" (whose video boasts over 6.4 million views). A slow-burning acoustic performance of the song at the New Years Eve celebration in Times Square kicked off a breakout year for Parachute, who appeared on ABC's Good Morning America and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and CBS's The Early Show. Losing Sleep was subsequently reissued on iTunes in a deluxe version adding the "She Is Love" video, rare B-sides, acoustic versions, and live tracks.
