"Chicago quintet Plain White T's have been turned completely inside out but are just as strong as ever on Parallel Universe. Though the band seems to suggest a complete mirror-image reversal, the new and improved Plain White T's have kept the best parts about themselves still intact." -Billboard


 

New York, NY - June 15, 2018 - GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum alt-pop band, Plain White T's, are excited to announce that they will be releasing their highly anticipated eighth studio album, Parallel Universe (produced by Matt Squire [Ariana Grande, Panic! At The Disco)] via Fearless Records on August 24th! The new album follows their 2015 independent release American Nights and marks their return to Fearless after 13 years. The band's endlessly hummable signature melodies still shine at the center of this galaxy, but their Universe morphed into an otherworldly atmosphere of ethereal electronic pop strengthened by lush guitar tones and synth transmissions. We can't wait for you to hear it. Full track listing can be found below!

 

In conjunction with today's album announcement, Plain White T's have released two new singles from the full-length offering, "Your Body" and "Bonnie I Want You." "Your Body" fuses minimal glitch blips, lithe guitars, and an unshakeable hook. PRESS HERE watch the coinciding video via Billboard, which was filmed at the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles and exhibits a male Ex Machina who was put together piece by piece by the male's female companion. The track premiered earlier this week via SiriusXM's The Pulse. "Bonnie I Want You" showcases the grittier side of Plain White T's - PRESS HERE to listen.

 

Parallel Universe is available for pre-order now at all DSPs and each pre-order will include an instant download of "Bonnie I Want You" and lead single "Your Body" - PRESS HERE. Deluxe limited edition album bundles are available at the official Plain White T's webstore HERE, including a glow in the dark vinyl, an oxford felt pennant and exclusive apparel that includes t-shirts, socks and enamel pins.

ABOUT PLAIN WHITE T's:
 

Since emerging in 1997, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum Chicago quintet-Tom Higgenson [vocals], Tim Lopez [lead guitar, vocals], Dave Tirio [rhythm guitar], Mike Retondo [bass], and De'Mar Hamilton [drums]-has amassed an enduring, engaging, and enigmatic catalog, spanning two gold-certified offerings All That We Needed (2005) and Every Second Counts (2006) and unshakable anthems such as the double-platinum "1,2,3,4" and platinum "Rhythm of Love." Among the discography, "Hey There Delilah" went quadruple-platinum, topped the Billboard Hot 100, and earned a pair of 2008 GRAMMY® Award nominations in the categories of "Song of the Year" and "Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal." Along the way, the five-piece logged countless miles on the road in front of sold out crowds in nearly every corner of the globe. After a whirlwind tour cycle supporting 2015's American Nights, the guys hunkered down and began writing the ideas that would eventually comprise Parallel Universe, slated for an August 2018 release. The band's endlessly hummable signature melodies still shine at the center of this galaxy, but their Universe morphed into an otherworldly atmosphere of ethereal electronic pop strengthened by lush guitar tones and synth transmissions.
