Para Alta are back with a new single, and a new London headliner

Para Alta have dropped a new single, ‘Blue Collared Mind’.

The song arrives with news of a new headline show too; the Hartlepool band will perform at London’s Old Blue Last on 30th March to celebrate the release of their 12" retrospective, ‘Greatest Hits 2016-2019’.

Lead singer Jonny Bee says of the track: “‘Blue Collared Mind’ is about life through the eyes of the working class, about how industry influences a certain way of thinking.

“Our hometown’s going through tough times at the moment, people we know are struggling, and we wanted to write about that. This song is about battling with your morals and the pursuit of a life you don’t want to lead.”

15 Birds Nest, Deptford, London

MARCH
01 Bootleg Social, Blackpool
02 Jimmy's, Manchester
