Everyday Sidekicks announce Hope EP, release video for new single “Fracture”

Bristol quartet Everyday Sidekicks will be self-releasing their sophomore EP, Hope on March 31st. The group said of the title:

Hope to us is a hugely important factor in life. You constantly have obstacles thrown at you that you need to overcome, times change and sometimes it’s not always good things that come your way. Without Hope for things to get better, life can get on top of you.”

The group have also debuted a music video for the effort’s first single, “Fracture”. Regarding the song, the group offers:

‘Fracture’ is about the way image effects the music industry. A lot of bands careers can be made by image alone and we feel it’s a big insult to smaller bands that work hard and have good music, that haven’t been given a shot due to them not being marketable enough. We felt ‘Fracture’ was a good lead single as it showcased our new style of music. It’s a lot more riff based than our previous releases and shows a lot more energy.”

The group recorded Hope at Monnow Valley Studios with Tom Manning. The band comments on working with the producer:

“He pushed us to play better and really put in the effort, so that we feel now that a big part of our sound has actually come from working with him. He likes to make things a lot less over produced and more stripped back and raw, which we are really starting to dig in our sound.”

Pre-order the EP today via the outfit’s Bandcamp and get a free download of “Fracture” as well.
