Single Focus: The Disappointed

16 September 2015 | 6:26 pm | Travis Johnson

How’s the year been for you guys so far? what have the highlights been?

Swell! We got the opportunity to play our first support slot for an international act, The Matches (US) earlier in the year, which was sensational. They were lovely guys, I have a soft spot for quirky pop-punk, and we got to feel what it was like to be a band people adored. Then we went fairly quiet, stopped gigging as frequently, and focused on the songwriting for EP numero three. 

Tell us about Find A Rope.

It’s the first single off our new EP, Disappear, which we will be putting out in 2016. It’s our heaviest song so far. Mick, the drummer describes it as a “ball tearer”. I think the lyrics are all brooding metaphors about discovering one’s inner self, or it’s a bunch of rhyming word gibberish - either way, it’s probably our catchiest song ever.

How’s the rest of Disappear shaping up? When can we expect a release?

It’s coming out in 2016, probably around March. We launched the first two EPs really quickly which I thought I would be good thing, I thought it would make us look super efficient and hard working, but I think it actually resulted in the second EP not getting as much attention due to the launches being too close together. So we’ve taken our time with this one, spread it out a bit, might drop a new single before the end of the year.

What’s the rest of the year hold in store for you?

Gonna gig a bit more. Visit the countryside. Plan some east coast touring. Sit around and hope people like our music enough to give us gigs.
