The Summer War – The New Single, ‘Walk With Kings’ and A New EP Announcement.
Manchester three-piece, The Summer War, are no strangers to MF as you can see from above and have now returned after eighteen months of studio silence.
For those who don’t know, the band’s sound certainly sets them apart from much of the UK underground, but at the same time lands them a certain level of multi-applicability when it comes to who they play with and even scenes they inhabit. Originally from a UK-styled Pop-Punk background, the band have evolved to be one of the better in UK underground Alternative Rock.
The new single, ‘Walk With Kings’, which you can find below and on bandcamp for ‘Free/Name Your Price’ download, is a triumphant return. With it’s soft Indie sensibility plugged with ballad-Rock reach and a contrast of both intense and more rounded vocals. The track satisfyingly plods along before the guitars are plugged in so to speak, for a welcome finish classic to the band.
The new five-track EP, Cult Of You, is set for release on the 12th April of this year and the digital pre-order is now live, for the almost no price at all price of £0.50, which allows you a instant download of ‘Walk With Kings’ now and the full EP the day of release.
‘This EP is the sound of us getting all our ideas down in one place, and exploring every option we had at the time, which is something that was lacking on our last EP. There are more obvious influences on there, such as Brand New and self-titled era Blink, then less immediate influences, such as Daughter, Have Mercy, Foxing and The Antlers, which we hope creates a layered listening experience’. – Tom Farr, Bass/Vocals.
