New Zealand’s Parachute Band Arrives In Technicolor On September 30
19 August 2008

New Zealand-based modern worshipers Parachute Band paints a new musical canvas with the release of Technicolor with Integrity Music on September 30, offering up a dozen fresh new worship songs from some of the world’s best songwriters.

Technicolor is the follow-up to the 2007 critically-acclaimed Roadmaps and Revelations, which had marked the debut of the re-fashioned Parachute Band, made up of Omega Levine (vocals), Sam de Jong (drums), Rhys Machell (bass) Alister Wood (keyboards) and Simon Moore (guitars). Parachute Band, which has existed for more than a decade, was first created to host New Zealand’s annual Parachute Festival.

“Technicolor represents a concept we developed for this album which is ‘water equals life, equals colour’ - full blazing colour, when we live with God at our side,” says band member Sam de Jong. “As we were preparing for this album, we noticed that quite a few of the songs had an underlying theme of water or, God’s living water. For us this living water is God’s love, grace and mercy flooding and cleansing our lives as we worship Him.”

“This theme also ties in to our heart for social justice issues and in particular, our work with World Vision in Rwanda,” he continues. “In our travels we have seen places and people that are in desperate need of both physical water and God’s living water. As a band we feel challenged to put actions to our faith, as we are encouraged in Hebrews 13 to do, and use what’s in our hands and what we have been given to see lives changed.”
