Having previously shared the stage with such national touring acts as Green Day, Foo Fighters, King's X, The Verve Pipe, Gravity Kills and The Fixx, St. Louis’s Lost Parade is now creating a "buzz" of its own with the independent release of its full length CD, Beautiful Addiction.

Reportedly a crowd of over 500 attended the band’s CD release party for Beautiful Addiction. A listen to the CD makes this sound reasonable as the band has quite a solid approach and alluring style that immediately grows on the listener.

Vocalist PJ Sharamitaro can obviously hold his own amongst rock’s stronger lead singers with his and the group’s backing vocals creating and weaving melodies not often equaled in this genre that’s known mostly for overpowering guitars and screams rather than a tasteful composition of singing and playing.

With lyrical content exploring the more positive aspects of existence, Lost Parade, makes hard rockin’ an uplifting experience. The group’s guitarists Jeff Faulkner Jason Baima assure all the meaty riffs are there and the rhythm section of Jeff Bradley (Drums) and Mike Bellovich (Bass) hold it all together which with all that’s going on is not for the faint hearted nor the ill prepared.

Songs like the opening track, “Climb” and “Nightcrawler” present the band at its best and may just be what good ol’ fashioned rock and roll needs to push it back to the forefront in the 21 st century
