THE NATIONAL PARKS Announce New Studio Album ‘Wildflower’ – Out April 17th

Folk-influenced indie pop band The National Parks have announced the details for their new studio album, Wildflower, due out Friday, April 17th, and have released the lead single and title track off the album along with its official music video. Distorted electric guitar elevates the hypnotic hook on “Wildflower” as a steady arena-size beat reverberates underneath soaring vocals on the rock-influenced song.

“We truly have never felt more excited to release anything as a band as we are with this song and the upcoming album,” shares lead vocalist/guitarist Brady Parks. “This song is about staying true to who you are and not letting negativity bring you down. In my mind, a wildflower is something so beautiful that grows and blooms in unexpected places and under the wide-open skies. It’s natural. It breaks free from any mold. That’s how we felt with this song and album – we see ourselves as wildflowers in this vast world of music. There can be a lot of negative forces that can bring you down, but you can take that and continue to grow and bloom and be authentically yourself through it all. That is what we did with Wildflower by staying as true and authentic to us as possible. The result is something we are so proud of and excited to share with the world. We hope people can be uplifted and inspired in some way as they listen to this song and the album as a whole and that they feel that even through trials and challenges that the best is yet to come. It’s an album about struggles and growth, hard times and faith, but with a message of encouragement that we can all get through anything and everything life throws at us.”
