Thanks so much for your interest. Here is the information for the contest:

WHAT IT IS: We’re looking for some fun spring/summer merchandise designs to print for sale online.

DUE DATE: All designs must be submitted by midnight PST on April 20th, 2018 to Dropbox or the email below

VOTING DATES: We’ll pick the 3-5 finalists ourselves and put them up for a vote on Instagram and Twitter the last week of April. We vote on one winner, with more than one winner possible at our discretion.

– 5% OF ALL NET PROCEEDS FROM SALE OF ANY MERCH WITH YOUR DESIGN (paid via Paypal, Squarecash or Venmo monthly, with updated sales reports)

– Credit on all pages selling and advertising the design
– Shout-outs on all social media accounts with posts about winning designs

– $15 to the Parachute merch store
– Credit on any social media posts displaying your design

– We’re looking for designs that encompass the idea of summer vibes with fun, vibrant colors that aren’t too harsh.
– We would like all designs to incorporate our name
– We’d prefer designs without our likeness, but are open to the idea of having our picture on it in a creative way
– We love hand drawn-like designs, illustrations, vintage ideas, but are honestly open to anything.
– Our target audience is mainly female, and like to shop at places like Target, Madewell and Topshop. We’d like the design to remain more gender neutral, but a more feminine ascetic is fine.
– We do not want anything scary or too masculine on the shirts. (Snakes, motorcycles, knives, etc.)
– PLEASE SEE THE ATTACHED DESIGN EXAMPLES. (You can do whatever you want, but you’ll get the vibe!)

– Must be at least 300dpi (if digital file) CYMK color
– Acceptable formats of digital files: .psd, .eps, .ai, .jpg, .tiff, .png
– If you submit a picture of your hand drawn art, PLEASE send as hi resolution of a photo as you can in a well-lit area with no shadows. We will help convert it to a digital format if you’re a finalist.

HOW TO SUBMIT: CLICK HERE to submit your file to our Dropbox or email with your entry or no later than midnight PST on April 20th, 2018.

Tour De Compadres West Virginia Show Canceled

Compadres in Huntington, WV:

Unfortunately, because of circumstances outside of our control, the TOUR DE COMPADRES show at Big Sandy Superstore Arena has been cancelled. This tour and spending each night with such incredible fans has been amazing, so on behalf of all the Compadres out on the road with us, we’re sorry to be missing you and look forward to coming back to the West Virginia area soon.

Tickets will be refunded in full at the point of purchase, and as an apology to the people of West Virginia, AEG Live will be giving ticket holders the opportunity to come see our November 9 show in Lexington, KY for FREE. You will receive an email from AEG Live with instructions on how to get tickets to the Lexington show next week.

Join The Crew!



What is The Crew? We essentially picture The Crew as a core group of Parachute fans who are ready and willing to help us out with projects, ideas and other random stuff we can’t do on our own.

We want to keep it chill and informal. Basically, we’ll shoot you an email if we ever have a project we think you can help us out with. And in exchange for your help, we’ll send you some free stuff.

We’ll also send you random stuff just for being cool and our friend with nothing expected from you in return, like live songs or merch discounts.

Stuff like this: assuming we haven’t run out yet (we only have a limited number), we’ll send you a signed sticker as a thank you for signing up.

There are no requirements and no minimums or anything. If you see an email and think you can help, awesome. If not, no biggie. You can jump on the next one.

That’s it!

Thanks again for being great fans and we hope you’ll sign up!

Fan Made Lyric Video Up Now!

We’re so pumped to finally show you this project we’ve been working on with our fans!

Each fan took a picture with a different word and sent it back to us. We did a little editing magic, and boom…

We’re so excited to present to you the WITHOUT YOU LYRIC VIDEO! Hope you enjoy and thanks to ALL the fans who helped make it happen!
