Top Left: Our reasonably alternative Christmas tree for this year. Made from a few of the branches from our huge tree rubbish pile and a concrete block. We have had mixed reviews so far, from "this is art" to "Oh dear that's the saddest tree I've ever seen" and my favourite "That is a Christmas twig!"- Mike & Family
Top Right: Rachel's Tree
Bottom Left: This is our tree decorated by the kids. Complete with lights and Christmas train and Christmas chests from the wise men - Pauline
Bottom Right: Hrmmmmm... actually ignore that one one, just Clint & Bjorn fighting over the prize!

Parachute has given a band the opportunity to open for Anberlin, big congrats to winners Swifts & Sparrows!

There was a lot of debate about the fight between the Tiger and the Bear, well the results are in... check the video below!

 

More from Parachute!

Florida's finest are bringing their tour-de-force live show to New Zealand next month.

The Winterhaven rockers will play The King's Arms Saturday August 31st.

It's been four years since the outfit breached our shores, bringing their 2008 album 'New Surrender' to life with a searing show at the Powerstation. Between then and now Anberlin has continued to solidify their place as one of alt-rock's hardest working bands, delivering the left-right hook of 2010's Brendan O'Brien-produced 'Dark Is the Way, Light Is a Place' and 2012's 'Vital'.

With Absolute Punk Magazine calling 'Vital' "the best record in Anberlin's ten year career, bar none", numerous residencies in the Billboard 200 and a headlining North American tour freshly behind them, the band has never been a stronger force in an increasingly pallid rock scene.

Onstage, leaning on an impressive back catalogue of hits like 'Feel Good Drag', 'Paperthin Hymn' and 'Godspeed', the quintet plug in and bleed, making them one of the scene's most exciting live acts. Their future once deemed by their frontman as "...either world domination or destruction", the band has chosen to take the world by storm.

Just make sure you're there to see it.

How it works

We want to celebrate reaching 10,000 fans on our Facebook page. While we’d love to have a ginormous party and fly every one of our fans to a secret party island in the Pacific, our events co-ordinater vetoed the idea because she’s busy working on all the awesome stuff we’re going to be doing at Parachute. So… we decided to send the party to you. In a box.

Every weekday morning from 17 – 21 September, we start the day with a list of 5 names of fans that like our Facebook page. We’ll read out the names, if you hear your name call us on 0508 LIFE FM and the first person in will win a party box full of treats from Sweet Pea Parties, Thanks, BANG Cosmetics, Harney & Sons, The Candyman and Hunting Letter Flags.

If no one calls up, we grab 5 new fan names and read them out on the Dayshow, then Afternoons, Night Show, and finally the Late Show. If no one calls up, we have our own party, without you!

For extra chances to win, make sure you’re interacting with our Facebook page, liking and commenting on our posts and generally drawing attention to yourself.

Day 1

We hit the road and cruised to mighty Taupo for our first adventure activity, the Taupo Cliff Hanger Swing! One of our winners Erin was the most scared so naturally we made her go first.

Day 2

We were ready to hit the mountain with some hardcore sledding, but what better way to get started by easing into the morning with breakfast in the spa pool...

Day 3

This was the big one, the highest bungy jump in the North Island, and who better to throw off the bridge than Ash... Clint's been trying to get him to do it since day one with no luck, until now!

Day 4

The camp finished well, with Whitewater Rafting care of Tongariro river rafting, big thanks especially heads out to Mad-dog Mike the raft guide and the dude who was in charge of keeping everyone alive!
