SELFISH THINGS Announce Debut EP, ‘Vertical Love’, Out March 16, 2018

Toronto-based alternative rock band SELFISH THINGS have announced their EP Vertical Love, out March 16. After a string of successful single releases, earning notable positions on playlists such as New Noise on Spotify, this will be the band’s first full body of music for fans since they started in 2015.

Co-produced by James Paul Wisner (Paramore, Dashboard Confessional) and lead singer-songwriter, Alex BiroVertical Love serves as Biro’s full transition from singer-songwriter to an all-out alternative rock band with Selfish Things.

“‘Vertical Love’ came into being after what was one of the most tumultuous periods of my life,” explains Biro. “It’s a body of work that’s representative of a time when I was struggling to eliminate my nihilistic outlook and replace it with something that was innately more sustainable and emotionally fruitful. I’ve always had a tendency to contemplate whether or not we choose the path we walk, or whether god/the universe/deity has placed us on a path that we have no control over. Looking back on it now, I think all of these songs are indicative of my struggle for control over the things I can’t understand or make sense of. The pain and suffering that come with sentience are necessary as a means of quantifying the depth of our experiences as living beings.”

Vertical Love features 6 tracks that will be released independently in the US and via A Wolf At Your Door Records (Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Mallory Knox) in the UK & Europe. In addition to the EP announcement, ALTERNATIVE PRESS have debuted the video for “1435”, and the video can be watched here: http://www.vevo.com/watch/selfish-things/1435/GB4371800010

In addition to the video and new EP, the band is excited to embark on their first North American tour, as official support for Los Angeles-based act, LAYNE. The 29 date tour is the much anticipated follow up to their successful run opening for Simple Plan in Canada late 2017.

“We’re really looking forward to spending some time in parts of America we’ve never seen individually, or as a band,” notes Biro. “I’m looking forward to hanging with my best friends on the road, eating some good southern food and making memories.”
