Parachute Youth Announce Split

Once rising stars of Australian EDM Parachute Youth have taken to their website and social media channels to announce they have officially broken up. The sudden announcement has come as a shock to many fans, with the band offering no explanation in their statement for the split.

John [Castro] and I are no longer pursuing Parachute Youth and no further shows will be performed as Parachute Youth,” begins the missive from Matt K Von, posted to their Facebook on 4th February. “It’s been a lot of fun and thanks to all that supported us these past few years.”

The duo, who describe themselves as “only a two piece but we make a lot of noise,” were a favourite of many in the Australian dance scene. Their last single was last year’s Runaway and their track Can’t Get Better Than This was one of the 100 most played tracks on Triple J in 2012.
