New Music Roundup 24/10/20

Hey everyone, apologies there wasn’t any roundup post the other, things have just gotten away from me this week and I’ve just lost track of so many things here. But now, we’re back to normal

So, what’s going on? If you’re new to the roundup we detail five new tracks that have been released in the world recently for your ears to devour! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up are the Chelmsford powerhouse five piece Tigress. ‘Choke’ is their first cut of material since their track, ‘Teardrop’ from last year.

Recorded and produced at Black Bay Studio by GRAMMY award-winning engineer Adrian Bushby (Muse, Foo Fighters, Black Peaks, Everything Everything).

Vocalist Katy Jackson had this to say of the track.

“Our new track is about living in the Information Age. It’s about having this information constantly shoved down your throat until you choke. Sometimes it’s too much, it’s like a cloud of smog choking your brain. There are so many opinions, videos, adverts, flavours of the week… I don’t even know if I have a single original thought of my own anymore. The video represents the ugly truth of consumerism and how its hijacked today’s technology to dehumanise the modern population.”

Moving into the American wave of bands now, we have the Pop-Rockers Grayscale with ‘Diamond’, which is their first track of fresh material since the release of their record, ‘Nella Vita’ in 2019.

Collin Wash (Vocals) says:

“It’s a song about that “damn, everything feels so good right now, I’m just going to ride this wave before it crashes again” feeling. Through struggle comes growth; I’ve had quite a lot of both the last few years. ‘Diamond’ is about conquering that feeling of hopelessness that comes through you, and just accepting that that’s part of being human. It’s all about enjoying the highs and taking the lows as they both inevitably come along.”

Now we have a duo you might not have heard of but that’s the beauty of these lists we make here at Almost Anything Media, you never know what might be coming here right now.

KidEyes, alternative pop rock duo from Los Angeles, shines light directly into a dark modern world with humble hooks, richly warm guitar melodies, shiny synths, and rock steady grooves. The duo, Greg Cahn and Ben Epand, communicate their music as honest pop through a lens of everlasting youth and optimism.

Their newest single “Don’t Hold Back,” out now, delivers an urgent message of hope and not wasting another breath. Cahn explains, “Given the weight of the world right now, music can certainly heal, and as artists, this song is our way to help do just that.” The track is the kickoff to their upcoming EP, slated for Spring 2021.

To coincide with the theme of the new single, the duo has launched the 20- day #DontHoldBackChallenge on Instagram and TikTok. In keeping with the theme of the song, which is about not holding back and doing something normally out of your comfort zone, each day one of the guys will post a video telling a story either about who they’re grateful for or of something they’re grateful they didn’t hold back on doing. KidEyes is urging fans to follow along and tell the world something they are grateful for.

Click on the following links for their TikTok and Instagram accounts.

#DontHoldBackChallenge Rules:

*Start video with “Today, I am grateful for…”

*Share a moment of gratitude or share a specific grateful experience. It can be about anything, a person, place, experience, etc.

*Tag person/people you experienced it with in your post.

*Videos should be under ‪1:00 minute

The band says, “We want this to be fun, and we encourage you to join us! We all could use a jolt of positive energy! Sending everyone good, healthy and positive vibes. The time is now: DONT HOLD BACK. : )

Check out ‘Don’t Hold Back’ below.

Now, heading back over to Manchester for the amazing Pop-Rock quartet Hot Milk. I have to say I personally love this band so much. They’ve had one EP and a few singles, toured with the Foo Fighters, played Slam Dunk and done so much as a band and when they release the aforementioned singles, you just want so much more.

And with that, their latest track, ‘Glass Spiders’ is just adding to their repertoire and will just be so pwerful when gigs do return.

On the new release, Hannah Mee (Vocals) says:

“Do you have those delicate invasive invisible thoughts that crawl inside your head, that whisper and tell you keep punishing yourself, that tell you you’re not good enough and that you deserve nothing? Those are glass spiders. They come in droves and they consume you. This song is about being at rock bottom, about giving everything you are until you have nothing left and succumbing to putting bad chemicals into your body just for the sake of wanting to feel something new”.

And lastly this week, While She Sleeps have announced their return. There’s going to be a UK Tour, a new record titled as ‘Sleeps Society’ and their latest track is the title track from that record!

The band also announced a new subscription scheme called Sleeps Spcoety via Patreon where fans can subscribe where they will have access to exclusive perks such as Secret Shows, Merchendise, Early acess to tickets and more.

Check out their track which is the final on this week’s roundup, ‘Sleeps Society’s Below.

New Music Video Roundup 11/09/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

Up first this week are the noisy Atlanta duo ’68 where they have a video for ‘Bad Bad Lambo’ where the band’s new track and the lead single from their recently released EP, ‘Love Is Ain’t Dead’.

Up next we have the band Bad Nerves with ‘Electric 88’.

Directed and produced by the band’s own Bobby Nerves, it’s a cut from the group’s self-titled debut album, set for release on 23rd October via Killing Moon Records.

“ELECTRIC 88 is about having a good time whilst you can,” says Bobby, “cause the world is fucked up and the clock is ticking. I still can’t imagine looking in the mirror and being an old man, but obviously, I know it’s a certainty. Unless I die young I guess… But that reality coupled with finding it extremely hard to breath most of the time is kind of what kick-started the theme of this song.”

Second this week are fresh faced band Forlorn have debuted their new single, ‘Colour Lost’, their fourth single and the second since signing with label Silent Cut.

The track has been released with an accompanying video (created by PurpleYam Productions), and you can check it out below.

Time for a remix.

Hot Milk have taped Lovelytheband’s Mitchy Collins and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus with putting a spin on their track ‘Candy Coated Lie$’.

Shades of house and EDM, alonside the funkiest bass you will find anywhere, coat the band’s wonderful melodies and create a really unique and undeniable track. 

Mixed with this 8-bit version of characters whom you may find familiar, check it out.

Moving into a massively different genre now, while the audio stream of BVDLVD’s (pronounced ‘Badlad’) single “SHUT DOWN” (ft. Jasiah) has racked up nearly 78k views on Youtube, fans have been clamoring for a music video– and they finally have one.

BVDLVD’s third studio album, ‘LUNATIC’ has amassed 5 million streams, and contains an impressive list of features including LA rapper Lil Darkie, German producer Pulse and most notably a collaboration with Lyrical Lemonade’s latest star boy and 6IX9INE collaborator Jasiah on the jaw-dropping opener ‘SHUT DOWN’, ‘LUNATIC’ is already being hailed as BVD’s most ambitious and accomplished album to date.

BVDLVD says, “This video is like the trap metal version of “Praise the Lord” by ASAP Rocky and Skepta. Lockdown or not, imma still get involved with my g’s across the pond. I’m here to make shit happen.”

And switching things up again, how about some Medieval Rock?

Feuerschwanz have released the official music video for their song “Im Bauch des Wals” (english: In The Belly Of The Whale). The song comes off their brand new album Das Elfte Gebot which was released on June 26 and landed at #3 on the official German album charts, where it remained for 8 consecutive weeks.

Im Bauch des Wals“ is about a majestic sea creature who did not swallow biblical Jona, but rather so much man made plastic that it eventually dies and sinks into the ocean.

The ship that Hodi and Hauptmann discovered on their trip to England went aground just before Land’s End in 2003 on its way from Cork (Ireland) to Lübeck – with 2200 tons of plastic on board.

Ever since then it’s right there at the beach, moaning and groaning whenever the high waves hit – just like a stranded whale dying…

We tried to capture the eerie and somehow mystical vibes of that place for you. A place where you go like: What kind of planet are we leaving to our descendants? One thing’s for sure: a whole lot of plastic waste.”

Now heading into familiar territory, ahead of the release of their hotly-anticipated debut record this month, Australia’s pop-punk bright lights Yours Truly have revealed a new single ‘Funeral Home’ today. The track premiered via triple j’s Good Nights last night, and today’s official release comes alongside a new music video. 

‘Funeral Home’ explores a sentiment perhaps many can relate to, after vocalist Mikaila Delgado found herself coming to a personal realisation on family as she grew older:

I wrote ‘Funeral Home’ after going to a funeral and realising how odd it is to be in a room of people you’re related to because someone has died,” she explains.

“I was thinking about how sad it is that you miss the life of someone you have the same blood as and all of a sudden in tragedy everyone suddenly comes together as family yet then won’t talk until the next one.”

Joining previously-released singles ‘Composure’, ‘Together’ and ‘Undersize’ (jointly on a whopping 3 quarter of a million streams already), the full release of Self Care on September 18 is shaping to be a breakout moment for Yours Truly. 

Moving to iDKHOW right now, the band have launched a new video for ‘Leave Me Alone’.

Directed by Raul Gonzo and shot in Los Angeles in August 2020, it’s a track from upcoming debut album ‘Razzmatazz’, set for release on 16th October.

“Making a video in the middle of a pandemic was a challenge,” explains Dallon Weekes. “We decided to incorporate a lot of things from the state of the world as it is now. Social distancing, sterile isolation, etc. it all seemed to fit with the song’s themes of wanting to quarantine yourself from toxic people and situations.”

Following the recent release of their new single ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’, Our Last Night have now shared a video to accompany the track.

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will feature on a forthcoming and yet-to-be-announced EP or full-length album.

And lastly this week, we had to choose this video. It’s big, it’s mental and just plain weird.

Sheffield’s Bring Me The Horizon have teamed up with rock superstar-in-the-making Yungblud for their brand new single, ‘Obey’.

It’s the third single to come from the band since their 2019 full-length ‘amo’ (excluding their ‘Music To Listen To…’ EP), and is expected to feature on a yet-to-be-announced new record.

Speaking on the track, vocalist Oliver Sykes had this to say.

“We consider ourselves free but only because the chains are invisible, and we are controlled in ways we don’t even want to think about. They tell us how to live with a smile on their face, like shit ain’t fucked up, inform us of tragic statistics like its nothing… it’s a weird world.”

Yungblud also had this to add regarding its message.

“We are being told to conform to a completely outdated idea that we don’t relate to or even understand. They teach us to turn against each other and to fight against our differences rather than embrace and celebrate them. They try to keep us divided because it makes us weaker. Robots follow robots, because they feel nothing at all. But what they don’t realise is that to us, to be different is to be free and a world of fucking love and equality is a world we want to be part of. We will rise above the hate and the diversion. We will fight for the world we want to be a part of. We will not obey.”

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

Music Video Roundup 31/07/20

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the new music video roundup. We’re here for a roundup of ten of the best recently released music videos. They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music!

First up this week is Jamie Lenman. With his EP, ‘King Of Clubs’ getting closer and closer, he’s released a new video in the form of ‘I Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend’.

This initially premiered over on Louder, the video was shot during lockdown, and features a handful of familiar faces from bands such as Black Peaks, Ithaca, Wargasm, Haggard Cat, and more.

This is what Lenman had to say of the song.

“After my last originals album ‘Devolver’ was a quite a contemplative, inward-looking record, I started looking outwards for ‘King Of Clubs’ and obviously I got pretty angry pretty quickly about the state of the world. The first single, ‘Summer Of Discontent’, was all about feeling helpless in the face of corrupt governments, and now this new single is about calling out unacceptable behaviour amongst your own peers.

I’m fed up of all the excuses people use to explain away things like bullying or racism and it felt good to finally say something about it publicly. I feel like there are a lot of lines being drawn in the sand at this time and hopefully here’s one more.”

We’re heading over to Buffalo for our next pick in this weeks countdown with the metalcore quartet Until I Wake, with the band’s latest release in ‘Less Of Me’, shot during lockdown.

Cody Johnson (Vocals) says:

“‘Less Of Me’ is a song that shows our softer side. We recorded the video ourselves due to lockdown from COVID-19. The lyrics are about giving up on a relationship that feels one sided, watching someone move on and not seem to care while you are left hurting.”

Who’s up for a live performance?

Northlane recently announced the details of a streaming event where they’ll be showcasing their sold out Roundhouse, Sydney show from October 2019.

“Like everybody on this platform around the world, we really miss live music. Both watching and performing, it’s a life changing and defining passion that runs through our veins. We’ve always wanted to bring this experience home to you, and right now there is no better time to do that.

If you’ve watched Negative Energy, you’ll know how big of a deal it was to come and sell out the Roundhouse in Sydney on the Alien world tour, after such a difficult time prior to this landmark album coming out. We knew we’d want to revisit this night so we brought in a whole camera crew, captured all the audio and had it pro mixed & mastered. Many of the older songs sound better than they ever did on record.

This will be your ONLY chance to watch this show in it’s entirety. Tickets are $10USD per stream. Not bad for the price of a beer in Sydney. We’ll be live chatting to you during the event too.”

Now, here’s what you can expect with a live video of ‘Bloodline’.

Keeping things Aussie for one more track but switching up the genre, we have Yours Truly. The bands animated video venture for ‘Together’ is the second track from their upcoming debut record, ‘Self Care’ where they have a Mortal Kombat style to things

‘Self Care’ is set to be released on September 18th via UNFD.

Vocalist Mikaila Delgado had this to say about the album:

“There was this almost electric feeling of excitement about getting to sit down and write our first record but also a huge feeling of anxiety at the same time.

We didn’t want to release something and have people say that we’re actually not that good and weren’t worthy of all the success we were getting… it was like we all had imposter syndrome.”

Moving to the Rap Metal genre for the next video of choice but still keeping the animation theme going are the California’s Body Count.

This track of choice for ‘Three Critical Beatdown’ is off their recently released record, ‘Carnivore’, which is available now via Century Media Records.

Who wants a new band to be checking out?

I haven’t found much information on this band as I’d like to for the post but there was something so compelling about the track and the video an exception had to have been made. I’ll be keeping an eye on Coldcasket in the near future as they storm on the video for ‘Letting Go’.

From Pouring Rain to their raging fires, Malevolence have their release of ‘The Other Side’ which is something must be watched because visually, it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve seen in a while.

Vocalist Alex Taylor had this to say about what the song means to them:

“The Other Side is a big step outside of our comfort zone both musically and visually. Anyone that has followed us since the beginning will be aware that we have tested the waters with a more melodic sound previously but we have never taken the full plunge until now. 

“We were very apprehensive as to how The Other Side would be received by our supporters, since it seems that progression is something that is rarely welcomed within the metal world. However, we strongly believe that we have a lot more to offer as musicians than just heavy riffs and hard mosh parts, and that the strength of the song would be enough to win over even the most skeptical metal purists. 

Lyrically the song covers the topic of losing someone, whether we are referring a romantic relationships or bereavement is open to your interpretation.”

Moving into Arizona territory right now with one of Rude Record’s latest signings in Sundressed.

The video for ‘Your Frequency’ is the band’s first new track since their signing with the label where their second studio record, ‘Home Remedy’ will be released September 18th 2020.

Frontman Trevor Hedges had this to say of the track.

“‘Your Frequency’ is about the “side-hustle” culture. How it’s never okay to relax, how something always comes up when you’re almost ahead. This song is about the desire to have less worry about essential needs and have more time to be human.”

After releasing their latest track a few week’s ago, Hot Milk have now a visual approach for ‘California’s Burning’.

The band had the following to say:

“We had something to say so we just fkin said it. Not anti-American, just anti-asshole.

“This is a rally cry against greed and the ruling class that so desperately cling to control the freethinkers and the good hearted.  We are all children of today and mavericks of tomorrow.

“We can build a bridge because their minds are too narrow.”

In addition, the track is available to buy on 7′ record with a portion of the proceeds going to the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Stop Hate UK.

Last week Neck Deep released their fourth record as a group which was ‘All Distortions Are Intentions’ where this video was the last before the album cycle started. The track they had for this video? ‘Sick Joke’.

On the release, Ben Barlow (Vocals) had the following to say:

“It’s a song that questions the fabric of reality whilst battling mental health. Jett contemplates whether life itself is even real, in fairly ethereal terms, due to the internal suffering he is experiencing. Shredding solos, punchy rhythms and stomping drums drive the song along, and it sonically represents the more minor driven side of the record.”

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

New Music Roundup 10/07/20

Hello there and welcome back! We’re here for a roundup of five of the best recently released tracks and sometimes a little information that comes with them! They’re not all within the same genre and they’re all different in some way or another but that means that there’s a little something for everyone here but come on, let’s get down to the music (videos)!

First up this week are the Hard Rock quintet Asking Alexandria whom have shared an acoustic version of their track, ‘Antisocialist’, which is off their latest release, ‘Like A House On Fire’.

In this version of the track, they’ve released an unplugged take of the track where each member performs their part from lockdown!

Moving to the British Pop-Rockers in the form of Hot Milk next. This is the third stand-alone single since the band’s release of their ‘Are You Feeling Alive?’ EP where at the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not this will remain a stand alone single or if it’ll feature on a future release.

Check out ‘California’s Burning’ below.

Protest time now? This is inspired by the recent Black Lives Matter movement where Pussy Riot have a new track titled as ‘Riot’.

The track also takes inspiration from the recent incarceration of the band’s own Peter Verzilov due to his alleged involvement of organising the riots in Russia last year.

You can check out Riot Featuring IXXF below.

and moving away to something a little more in the alternative territory within Canada, the alt quintet Rarity have the first material since their record, ‘The Longest Lonesome’ last year in the form of ‘Leave It Alone’.

On the track, the band say:

“What I take away the most from ‘Leave It Alone’ is what a testament it is to the band – long time friends – coming together, having fun and writing (in my opinion) one our most exciting tracks. We thought the song had immediate live energy, written specifically for our return to Europe this spring. The lyrics came together in one night, putting together a story from ideas jotted down in my phone. Touring has of course been put on hold due to the pandemic, but me and the rarity camp are eager for that green light – the go-ahead – ready for that first night we get to rip ‘Leave It Alone’ live for everyone.”

And lastly this week, we have the latest release from New York’s Evanescence in the form of ‘The Game Is Over’, which is the second track to be released off of their upcoming, ‘The Bitter Truth’ record.

Amy Lee on the track has said:

“This song is about being sick of the facade. The disguises we wear for others to make them feel comfortable, the inside feelings being so different than what we show on the outside to fit within the boundaries of what’s socially acceptable, or what’s not going to make you unpleasant or too ‘weird’ to be around.

‘The Game is Over’ is a promise to myself and out loud that I’m going to be more of my real, inner self on the outside–not lock her up because she can’t be contained anymore. It’s also a prayer to become better, to not feel so messed up, locked up, and hurt inside.”

And that’s it for another week of a countdown of the best singles out in the world in the last week. Be sure to check back next-time for another round of great music videos.

Music Video Roundup 24/04/20

The music video roundup is back! That’s right now things are looking bleak so I wanted to re-instate the roundup so everyone has something new to be watching. In addition to this, there’s a new weekly tracks post coming because it will not stop the music!

First things first, to get up started we have Puppy. ‘Powder Blue’ is the last one on their last EP, ‘iii’ On the track they’ve said: “We called it that because it was our third EP, and because there are three of us in the band. For whatever reason, triptychs, triplets, three-pieces & trilogies felt quite important to us at that point.

 

Up in the second spot this week is the Manchurian Pop-Rock up and comers who have just about established themselves with this reworked mashup of two of their tracks in a toned-down version for ‘Wide Awake (In Awful Ever After) for which both tracks are cut from 2019’s ‘Are You Feeling Alive’ EP. In addition to the new cut of the track, we have some behind the scenes footage of the band as well as some live footage for everyone to enjoy.

Now, who’s up for some gymnastics and a pulsating slow-burning performance? Well, that’s just what Frank Iero And The Future Violents have in store for us as Frank himself explains:

“It was apparent to me early on while writing Barriers that ‘Medicine Square Garden’ was its most important track. It was the cornerstone upon which the rest of the record and band was formed. If we lost the battle on that song, the rest didn’t stand a chance. ‘Medicine Square Garden’ pushed the most boundaries, scratched the most itches, and terrified me far beyond any other song I had written. So when we crossed off every box in Chicago at Electrical Audio and listened back with smiles knowing we had accomplished our goals, a new objective soon emerged: Get the label to see our favorite song as a single, and let us make the video of my dreams.”

“‘Medicine Square Garden’ is not your typical single. It’s a five and a half minute attempt at answering the question, ‘What if Prince wrote a Sleep song?’ Oh and if that’s not batshit enough for you, I already had the video in my head. So armed with crudely drawn set designs and a typed-up description of a witchy calisthenics workout meets a Robert Palmer alien massacre, I submitted my pitch to the label. This was my vision from the beginning and no one told me I was crazy. What a world.”

Next up, we have a little talk of Nothing, Nowhere. It’s a track that’s full of harsh beats and vocals which are somehow a little harsher. You can watch ‘Death’ below.

Now, since Suitor released their debut in October of last year the band have been busy.  They’ve been touring like crazy and as well as working on their upcoming second EP. The video for that second release is now complete in the form of ‘Deep Sleep’.

On the track singer Casey Smith has said:

“‘Deep Sleep’ as a video conveys the battle of addiction and temptation; literally in the form of alcoholism, or something else entirely based on perspective. Drug abuse, codependency, self medication, whatever it takes to find respite in a depressive or anxious reality. That solution or “fix” is portrayed in the siren character. For the wandering male lead, it is the only option, the only path that leads to a salvation without despair, in her embrace. Even if it means the end for him, he cant resist the cure, allowing her to pull him beneath the surface, finally at peace. He wakes, stunned to realize that it was only a dream; a temporary escape. Where does he go from here?”

For another up and coming band we have Static Dress. They’ve been on the up and there’s no signs of them stopping. Now they have a new track in the form os ‘Safeword’ which has an accompanying video where they return to the green and white room from their debut single, ‘Clean’.

Moving on in the list Dance Gavin Dance have launched a new video, with the help of their fans. In their ‘Three Wishes’ video, the band put a call out for people to send in footage of themselves cleaning their houses, brushing their teeth etc (A little strange right?)

But ‘Three Wishes’ is off their upcoming record ‘Afterburner’, which is due to be released April 24th via Rise Records.

 

Now we have Eat Away My Heart. It’s actually a track title on this one. I’m sure everyoen’s thinking the same, is it? It’s actually a fact! This track comes from the brilliant Wallflower whom have their debut record, ‘Teach Yourself To Swim’ on its way and now there’s a video to go with it!

On the track though, vocalist/guitarist Vini Moreira-Yeoell has said:

“It’s a song about giving away all the best parts of yourself to someone in the hope that the person in question will like you a little more, which never works by the way.”

Check out ‘Eat Away At My Heart’ below.

Now we’re nearing the endgame for this weeks list where A Day To Remember’s time has finally come on the list. Everyone’s eagerly awaiting the release of their seventh record, ‘You’re Welcome’, the band have decided to share just what’s coming with their latest cut off the record, ‘Mindreader’.

This follows on from ‘Degenerates’ and ‘REsentment’ where the track has an accompanying animated video that tells the story of a man in a mental battle with his girlfriend who’s portrayed as a mystical physic woman.

On the track, frontman Jeremy McKinnon has said:

“We’ve had this video done for some time now, and seeing as how our album isn’t out yet and the state of the world is keeping us off the road, we wanted to get some new material out there for our fans as soon as possible.

This song was one of my personal favorites off the new album from the day it was written. I wrote it with the incredibly talented Mike Green. Fun fact, it was the first song I’ve ever sent the guys in the band that was unanimously loved. This song was written to be a lighthearted take on people in relationships expecting their partners to read their minds.”

Lastly, on the list for this weeks Roundup, we have Yours Truly. They have released ‘Composure’ which is there first taste of new music from the band since the release of their EP ‘Afterglow’ in 2019.

On the track Vocalist Mikaila Delgado has explained:

Hot Milk Announce Headlining Shows

The new Emo / Pop Punk four-piece straight out of Manchester are the best thing happening within the UK scene right now. They stormed sets at various festivals in 2019 as well as opening for the almighty Foo Fighters and now in 2020 opening for The Band Camino.

Well, it seems that they’re doing everything right in 2020 as the band have announced two headlining UK shows which will also be their debut headliners!

The shows are billed as Are You Feeling Alive? LIVE where I’m assuming they’ll perform their EP in full as well as more because Candy Coated Lies. One of the best tracks they have by far!

They announced London last night and today they SOLD OUT the Camden Assembly, where they’ll perform on 14th April 2020 within four hours. Massive massive congratulations there for the band. But that’s not all as they announced a second date for Manchester’s Deaf Institute on April 13th 2020 which still has tickets available.
