Exile Parade is a British Rock & Roll band from Warrington, North West, England. Lomax, Chris, Phil, Dave and Mutchy formed the band in the summer of 2006.
In February 2007 the band’s early demos were made available for free on myspace. They gained the support of well respected rock writer Mick Middles who stated Exile Parade are “The most promising band to emerge in the last five years”. After hearing the band’s early demos on myspace well known producer Owen Morris called the former Oasis guitarist Paul Arthurs more commonly known as Bonehead who had been playing the band’s demo on his BBC Manchester Music show. Not long after the stamp of approval from Bonehead, they both came to see the band play live; four months later the band was in Real World Studios with Owen making a start on their debut album. The band's demo recording of 'Fire Walk With Me' was used on the Series 1 DVD sound track for the popular e4 teen drama Skins. Their song 'Love Disco' also featured in the Andy Dick/Ben Stiller/Jack Black film 'Danny Roane: First Time Director'.
Exile Parade are finishing their debut album with Owen Morris in Spring 2008 at Monnow Valley Studio's in South Wales. Morris is most commonly known for his work with Oasis; he started producing some work for Oasis at the end of the Definitely Maybe sessions. He continued working with Oasis for their subsequent two albums (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) and Be Here Now (1997). Morris appears on the cover of (What's the Story) Morning Glory? holding the album's master tape. He has also produced albums for The Verve, New Order, Ash, The Paddingtons, Eastern Conference Champions and The View.
