London post hardcore act Jack The Envious have announced their sophomore EP, In Your Own Way will be self-released as a free digital download on 7/14. The band have also just dropped a lyric video for their new single, “Begging For More”, which you can check out below.
On the EP, Jack The Envious comment:
“We’ve got so many songs in our arsenal at the moment, it’s been crazy to choose only five songs, but we wanted to keep it simple. Bands change all the time, a little here, a little there. With that being said, we wanted to capture it yet give the listeners who already know us that familiar JTE vibe. The songs are, in a way, very different from each other, but at the same time contain the guidelines of a JTE song.
We never settled on one style of writing, and every time it’s a different journey but with the same friends.”

In regards to “Begging For More”, this what the band had to say:
“Most of our songs try to give the listener a personal story, but also one that they can take and relate to their own lives. We think this song delivers this kind of writing more than others.
For us, ‘Begging For More’ speaks about the struggle in modern society. That constant conflict of doing something wrong, while knowing it’s wrong, these things can be something small or something on a global scale. Although it doesn’t come to criticise it more than it does to resonate with it while showing the hypocrisy in these matters, as we’re not exceptional.
The Lyric video aims to bring the words we wrote to life, we went totally DIY on this one. Guy (Guitar) sat for days learning how to make everything, it’s been truly amazing watching him work. The video is very graphical, every word comes to life and the in-betweens gives you the real vibe of the song.”
