Hailing from Cumbria and Manchester, pop punk quartet Fight For Friday have announced their sophomore EP entitled Someone You Could Trust, due out May 11th. 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.

Now streaming their first single from the record here, “Headache” is as Harper reveals: “a song based on introspection, overthinking and loneliness. We wrote it after the news of Chester Bennington’s death and although it isn’t directly related to him, it made me think about how much other people can affect your own thoughts and how hard it can be when there’s nobody around to listen or impact your thoughts in a positive way. It’s probably our most powerful song in terms of both musicality and lyrical content.

Completed by Lloyd Scott-McCullough on Lead Guitar, Sol Barrow on Bass and Matthew Grosvenor on Drums, Fight For Friday are diamonds in the rough. As their first band, the project began life as an extra-curricular school activity at the tender age of 14, picking a name which “sounded pretty cool. Not so much anymore.” Now seeing the eldest member turn 20, they find themselves in the position of “having spent four years experimenting and undergoing a line-up change. We’ve achieved more than we’d initially hoped – playing at huge venues such as Manchester Academy, Fac251; releasing our first EP in 2016 and having toured the UK twice. The best thing about this band is the natural bond and growth that we have. We are nothing more than a high school band that didn’t stop, carrying on to get to the stage that we are now. It wasn’t the quickest journey but its definitely been the most fun.
