After two solid years of touring behind them, the members of Parachute entered the L.A. studio of producer John Fields (Switchfoot, Jonas Brothers, Jimmy Eat World, Andrew W.K. and Rooney) to record The Way It Was, the follow-up to their 2009 Top 40 debut, Losing Sleep.

Lead vocalist/writer Will Anderson, who has been playing with drummer Johnny Stubblefield, bassist Alex Hargrave and saxophone/ keyboardist Kit French since they were high school classmates in Charlottesville, VA, seven years ago. They would later be joined by guitarist Nate McFarland, whom Will met while attending University of Virginia together.

In The Way It Was, the band's patented lush melodies are now accompanied by a production that is intricate yet sparing, with plenty of aural space for the band to explore the soaring gospel harmonies of the first single, ¬Å“Something to Believe In (Jeremiah),¬Â the Afropop Peter Gabriel/Sting world beat of ¬Å“What I Know,¬Â the wide-screen Springsteen-like cinematic epics ¬Å“American Secrets¬Â and ¬Å“Philadelphia,¬Â along with the country-flavored twang of ¬Å“Kiss Me Slowly.¬Â The latter of which Anderson co-wrote with Lady Antebellum's Grammy-winning Record and Song of the Year duo of Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood.

    I heard they put on an amazing show. Would rather jam out to a great band then dress up and cruise the Pearl bars.

    my friend recently became a big fan of this band and I love them as well, her birthday was about a month ago and I couldn’t really get her something, then I heard that Parachute was coming to town and thought this would be the perfect gift for her.

    I would love to go, I work the graveyard shift so I hardly ever get to go out. By some miracle I got the night off and want to enjoy Halloween Parachute style especially since my family came to town and I’ll be spending Thanksgiving and Christmas working while they’re a state away…

    Parachute is love. When I think of my beloved parachute coming to portland and me missing out…a part of my soul dies. How can the only thing that’s killing me make me feel so alive??? I just want to see them do badly, I mean they’re in the background…on the radio…they haunt me! Like a ghost or something.

    I have been recovering from a broken femur all summer, and have not gone (nor been able to go) ANYWHERE or seen ANYTHING for way too long. This could be the very thing the doctor ordered to get my life back into the sane lane.
