Come closer to the edge with the Boston based five-some Parkview and realize just how far they've had to climb. Their music is a transcendental release from the harsh realities of life, the scars left behind by bite marks of challenge and perseverance. And that’s just what this band is all about, showing their scars and the blossom of truth behind the sometimes disfigured emotional center known as the human experience.

Parkview originally exploded into the underground music scene in late 2004, bringing with them their own intense brand of rock n’ roll - a polished-off cross between well known acts Matchbox Twenty and 3 Doors Down. Since then, they’ve been riding a wave of turbulent musical energy with gripping live performances, led by the sheer vocal intensity of lead singer Glenn Romero. The band has played more than 100 shows, in the last year, infecting the ears of hundreds of fans along the East Coast.

Nearly a year has passed since New England’s best-kept secret embarked on their musical venture, touring relentlessly in support of fans, playing to bigger crowds with each passing gig. In addition to a variety of club and bar shows, the band gave an electrifying performance at Boston’s Anthem Battle of the Bands in 2005, capturing the top spot and taking home first prize – a concert in Florida before an audience of 50,000+.

With all that’s happened in such a short time, the most important elements of Parkview are still in place and going strong – hard work and determination. And for fans wondering what Parkview is up to lately, they’ve recently released their latest EP, “Songs Above The View,” that promises to surpass all the band’s previous endeavors.
