WORSE FOR WEAR RELEASE
NEW SINGLE ‘TIME’
FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM
‘SURE TO LEAVE A MARK’
Brisbane pop-punk trio, Worse For Wear, are today sharing their new single and unofficial title track, “Time“, from forthcoming album ‘Sure To Leave A Mark‘ out Friday September 3.
Produced, mixed and mastered by Nick Wilkinson (We Set Signals), this single reflects the underlying themes explored across the album in that it’s apologetic and a little self loathing. Vocalist Curtis Heinz explains that their brand new single is “an open letter. It’s drawn from experiences we have seen unfold over the years. It acknowledges our imperfections and the pain this can ensue. Although not mentioned in the song I am hoping to incite forgiveness and a way forward.“
“We hope that the listeners can enjoy the emotion that we have captured. The lyrics are purposely minimal in the hope they can easily be remembered by the listener. This is one we cannot wait to play live and feel it is a fitting end to ‘Sure To Leave A Mark’.”
‘Sure To Leave A Mark’ is a record that has been in the process of production for a long time coming. The trio have taken their time to craft a collection of songs that accurately represent the values and drive behind the band. “We have worked hard to consolidate and define the overall sound that is Worse For Wear,” explains Heinz. “I believe this release is the perfect representation of who we are as a band. We hope that people can connect with the songs and take something positive out of listening.“
Worse For Wear is Curtis Heinz (vocals), Zac Heinz (bass, vocals) and Clint Hillhouse (drums). The trio have been making music together for seven years and have been working tirelessly to hone their revered pop punk sound. Previous single “Friends” builds on the foundations laid by earlier singles that have found a home on the album, including “Don’t Look Down”, We Got This” and “Happy”.
Releasing in late March, “Happy” put Worse For Wear on the map with airplay on triple j‘s Short. Fast. Loud and a beaming review from Declan Byrne: “Worse For Wear are once again laying the hooks on hard in this searing punk blend.” The Soundcheck also weighed in and eloquently described Worse For Wear as a group who have built a “reputation for positivity alongside rollicking riffs, thumping rhythmics and a DIY mindset at the heart of their sonic souls.”
Releasing their debut EP ‘Empty Eyes’ in 2014, Worse For Wear immediately hit the east coast of Australia, touring with Drawcard, Nerdlinger and Concrete Surfers. Subsequent US College Radio play saw Worse For Wear reach LA for a promotional run. 2016 would see the band perform their debut headliner in Brisbane. After a sold out performance at their annual Seasick festival, more opportunities arose, seeing them play with Trash Boat (US), The Hard Aches and Windwaker.
“Time” and “Friends” are out now and available everywhere. Debut album ‘Sure To Leave A Mark’ will be available Friday September 3.
