Hailing from Cumbria and Manchester, Pop-Punk Quartet Fight For Friday have announced their sophomore EP. Entitled ‘Someone You Could Trust’, the five-tracker will be self-released on the 11th of May.
Taking the title from a beloved The Wonder Year’s song, vocalist / guitarist Seb Harper reveals: “It is relevant to the context of the EP and the message we are trying to portray: the effect that other people can have on someone’s happiness, health and life experience.”
Recording ‘Someone You Could Trust’ took place at White Bear Studios, with engineer David Page at the helm. Describing the material as being the result of “feeling depressed and fun riffs”, the band recall that the creative process was led by allowing ideas to flow and “riding the wave”, rather than overthinking.
Writing about personal situations and relations, they cover topics such as mediocrity, false apologies, standing up to haters and mental health awareness.
Within the genre, they are inspired by the likes of The Story So Far and New Found Glory, creating a scrappy and lively pop-punk, in combination with flairs borrowed from classic rock and hardcore, saying: “We’ve taken influences from heavier bands along with bringing more introspective emotional vibes into the mix. What probably sets us apart from other artists is our huge range of different influences going into our music.”
As a preview, you can now stream the band’s single “Headache” below. Enjoy!
