UK indie-punk/emo collective itoldyouiwouldeatyou are pleased to announce their return with the news of a brand new EP set for release on Alcopop! Records x Failure By Design Records. The EP will package all of the band’s physically-unreleased previous singles to date alongside brand new material.
Always keen to foster a community aspect around their releases, ITYIWEY have slowly but surely been assembling a family of like-minded fans and friends across the country. Building on their previous material, the new EP is a further exploration of the band’s talent for finding balance within their own sound, as they straddle a range of genres from punk, emo and math-rock to wall-of-noise guitar parts and lo-fi indie.
The band’s previous singles ‘Mourn’ and ‘Divine Violence’ presented their most confrontational work so far, addressing vocalist Joey’s experiences of being discriminated against as non-binary and bisexual, while also taking aim at what the band sees as “cowardly” centrism in British politics.
This new work might seem a radical leap from 2016 EP ‘I Am Not Your Fault’, but whilst the band might be shifting their tone in some places, they continue to flourish musically, delving further into their post-hardcore influence, all the while maintaining their talent for balancing intricacy with catchy hooks.
