MT. CLEMENS, Mich. -- The Parlotones are making their mark in the states with its first U.S. release Stardust Galaxies, which originally debuted in the group’s native South Africa last year, and hit the U.S. market last week, on September 14th. The album’s lead single, "Life Design,” quickly found a home on stateside radio over the summer.

"We're now very excited to embark onto the journey into America ; that's the dream,” states lead singer Kahn Morbee. "The goal is that we can take our music around the world. Whether it makes us superstars doesn't matter."

The band is already an international sensation throughout Europe as well as their native South Africa , where they've sold more records than Coldplay, Oasis and The Killers, combined.

With The Parlotones’s FIFA World Cup Kickoff Concert performance watched by more than one billion viewers, the group has embarked on its very first American tour, joining rock veterans Blue October on the road. The tour schedule includes two dates in Michigan on October 8 (Traverse City, Leelanau Sands Theatre) and October 9 (Mount Clemens, Emerald Theatre), as they get closer to their dream of building an audience in what is perhaps the final frontier for the band—the United States.

"We've always had to work really hard," Kahn said. "We've never come with a big record label; we've always had a spirit of independent label. We won't give up; it's about the journey, and it's about making music. When we write songs, it's really on a social and internal level."

Stardust Galaxies will be available on Sovereign Entertainment USA/Rocket Science Ventures at select music retailers across the U.S. , and through all major digital music providers such as iTunes and Amazon.com.

“The ultimate message [of this album]," said Kahn, "is that life is a great journey and there is always hope. There are songs to dance to, and there are songs to make love to. It's the soundtrack of the human experience."
