Trophy Eyes From New Track, ‘Life In Slow Motion’

Trophy Eyes have just dropped new track ‘Life In Slow Motion’.

The new single is the latest to arrive ahead of the band’s forthcoming fourth album, ‘Suicide and Sunshine’, set for release on June 23.

Speaking of some of the existential sentiment that went into the track, Floreani has said:

“‘Life in Slow Motion’ is my assessment of life itself, and the way we as humans navigate life and time here on Earth.” 

“Searching for meaning in chaos, I found myself seeing signs in number patterns and small examples of beauty in ordinary life; a hug at the bar exchanged between friends, a crinkled photo of a loved one kept close, a kindness or a smile.”

“What they mean, I can’t say, but sometimes if you look hard enough and sit quietly enough, life reaches out and speaks to you.”

Trophy Eyes Part Ways With Guitarist Andrew Hallett

Trophy Eyes have announced that the band have parted ways with their lead guitarist Andrew Hallett.

Hallett has been a part of the band since 2013 and in the time released three studio records, ‘Mend, Move On’, ‘Chemical Miracle’ and ‘The American Dream’ as well as self releasing two EP’s ‘Demo 2013’ and ‘Everything Goes Away’.

The last release came in the single, ‘Nobody Said’ in 2022 which followed on from ‘Bittersweet’ and ’27 Club’.

Trophy Eyes:

“It’s with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Andrew today. You were a rock for all of us in Trophy Eyes, always down for anything and capable of everything. All these years spent breaking our backs and ceaselessly hoping;

they’d have been nothing without you.

It’s been an honour to watch you grow from Evel Kneivel into a loving husband, and now, a proud father. Best of luck in the next stage of life, old friend, and enjoy the hard fought for time with your family- your other one will be always waiting for you.”

Andrew Hallett has released his own statement on departing from the band:

“What an absolute journey.

From sleeping on the side of the road and playing only to the support bands to travelling the world, playing to thousands of people while getting paid to do it.

I am left with so many beautiful memories and I am so grateful to have been part of it.

Whilst I will miss playing in Trophy Eyes greatly, I have so many new memories to make with my little family, my next adventure is only just beginning.

While I’ve got this moment I’d like to thank everyone; My friends and family, all our crew over the years, Hopeless Records and of course our fans.

Special shoutout to Eddie Deal and Shane

Edwards, thank you for always believing in us.

And finally my band; John, Jeremy, Blake, Kev and Cal. I couldn’t ask for a more genuine, talented and funny group of people to have done this thing with. I love you guys.

I got to live the dream.”

Thank you.

Trophy Eyes are set to play two shows in the UK this May as part of this years Slam Dunk Festival on 27th and 28th May in Hatfield and Leeds respectively.

Kevin Cross Leaves Trophy Eyes

Trophy Eyes have recently announced the departure of Kevin Cross (Guitar) who will be leaving the band after one final performance at the Australian Festival Splendour In The Grass.

In a statement posted to Facebook by the band, Trophy Eyes have shared:

“Our dear friend Kevin will play his last show with Trophy Eyes at Splendour In The Grass this Saturday.

One minute you’re in an apartment, writing music together and trying to show the world what your souls sounds like. And the next, 6 years have passed, you’ve seen the world, you’ve lived, lost and loved, and grown in to someone your old self would barely even recognise. Through all the hard times; sleeping in the dirt on the side of the road, stealing from service stations to eat, 20 hour drives, parking lot fights, missed weddings and funerals, soul crushing winters and genuine home sick tears- you were there. Our light. Our happiness. What a crazy life we live. What a cruel and beautiful ride it has been. We will miss you more than we have words to tell, Kevin.

Touch the sun, mate.”


Cross has also shared his own statement on the departure. He shared:

“This hasn’t been a easy decision but it is time for me to say goodbye to Trophy Eyes. I’ve made the decision to take a different direction in my life and career, also start a family.

I want to say a big thank you to everyone that has supported Trophy Eyes. You all allowed me to see the world and do things I never thought was possible. I’m forever grateful. A big thank you to my Brothers in Trophy Eyes for being so supportive and understanding with this decision. I can’t believe the things we have done it’s truly crazy and I wouldn’t change a thing I love you all so much.

I’ll be sure to come to a show.

This is sad but yet so exciting, it’s finally time to do me. Thank you for the memory’s.

Love Kev xo”
