Released on Ltd Edition Tape 20th June via Crust Pop Records
UK Festival Appearances At Camden Crawl, Truck Festival, Y Not + more TBA
Plymouth indie-punk trio WOAHNOWS are back with the latest offering from their forthcoming debut album on Big Scary Monsters Records in the form of new single ‘Life In Reverse’ set for release on 20th June via Crust Pop Records on limited edition cassette tape.
Think Against Me! meets Japandroids and Les Savy Fav, with Dananananaykroyd-esque guitar work and gang vocals packed full of hooks and earworms.
“Some songs just write themselves, and this is one of them” explains front man Tim Rowing-Parker “I don’t really feel like I can even take credit, one day it was just there. Certainly not one of our smartest or technical ones, but it’s fun to straighten out from time to time, so we did.”
“The start of this year has been almost too good, touring all over the place with two of our favourite bands, Bangers, then Gnarwolves. Watching Thom (accidentally) drink Max’s piss like it had happened way too many times before (ah sorry Thom, wasn’t supposed to let him have the satisfaction was I?) and just getting to play and watch everyone each night has been real fun.”
If previous single ‘Watching Accidents’ was a more relaxed introduction to the summer, then ‘Life In Reverse’ is a full on sun-soaked assault on the senses – a frenetic, fast paced slice of off the wall, fuzzy punk that pulls no punches before breaking down into a crowd singalong built for a beer drenched circle pit at one our many fine festivals.
You can catch the band at Camden Crawl, Truck Festival and Y Not Fest this summer with plenty more to be announced, as well as further album details to be released soon.
New single ‘Life In Reverse’ is released 20th June 2014
