Los Angeles, CA – March 19, 2020 – Folk-influenced indie pop band The National Parks have announced a rescheduled date for their upcoming Superbloom Music Festival as a result of the national ban on public gatherings due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) preventing its original April date from happening. Still set to occur at The OC Tanner Amphitheater at Zion National Park in the band’s home state of Utah, the first-ever Superbloom Music Festival will now take place Saturday, August 15th with its lineup fully intact. The National Parks, who will be celebrating the release of their new studio album Wildflower with their curated festival experience, will headline along with performances from Joshua James, The Strike, Tow’rs, The Federal Empire, Ellee Duke and Brother. A special VIP pre-fest event on Friday, August 14th is also still confirmed with an exclusive campfire acoustic show from The National Parks at a location to be announced. All original tickets will be honored for the new date with limited tickets still available for purchase; PRESS HERE for ticketing information.

Due to the delayed date for Superbloom, The National Parks have also revealed that their independent fourth full-length album Wildflower will be pushed back and will now be released on Friday, June 19th. The forthcoming 15-track album, produced and mixed by longtime collaborator Scott Wiley, features their best songwriting to date and a variety of sounds and styles, as evidenced on the album’s title track and lead single “Wildflower,” as well as a lot of heart, creating a sound that fully encapsulates The National Parks.

“As our fans know, the idea of the Superbloom Music Festival was originally born because we wanted to throw a big destination celebration at home in Utah to honor the release of our new album Wildflower,” shares lead vocalist/guitarist Brady Parks. “Since the festival has to be moved, we decided to hold off on putting the album out so the timing was not as spread apart. We’re so incredibly excited about Wildflower and truly can’t wait for everyone to hear it! While we know you have to wait a few months longer, we will be sharing more songs off the album in the coming months so stay tuned! Wildflower is 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. We can’t think of a more perfect time to be reminded of that! We will get through this and hopefully be stronger as a result. Please stay safe and healthy, and take care of each other, and then we’ll see you August 15th at the beautiful OC Tanner Amphitheater for an extra special celebration!”
Since emerging in 2013, The National Parks have quietly grown into an independent phenomenon with roots embedded in blissful pop, cinematic electronics, organic orchestration, and rock energy. The Provo, UT male/female quartet – Brady Parks [guitar, vocals], Sydney Macfarlane [keys, vocals], Cam Brannelly [drums], and Megan Parks [violin] – bloom like never before on Wildflower, the follow-up to their 2017 release Places. Since their introductory album Young , the band, who create atmospheric and “anthemic indie-folk as boundless as their name would suggest” (Paste), has racked up over 90 million total streams, sold out headlining shows, toured with Andy Grammar, Peter Bjorn and John and WILD, and performed at KAABOO Del Mar, SXSW and CMJ, while garnering praise and support from the likes of NPR, Paste, PopMatters, Relix, Atwood Magazine, Glide Magazine and Substream Magazine and comparisons to The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, The Head and The Heart.
