Scottish pop punks Woes are making a huge splash around the world today with their anthemic new single “Suburbs.” Produced by Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, WSTR, Roam), the track debuts the addition of guitarist Luke Bovill to the band and captures Woes’ meticulous ear for melodies and colossal hooks. Fans can check out the brand new track and accompanying music video at https://unfd.lnk.to/Suburbs.
Vocalist DJ explains, “Suburbs was the first track we wrote when Luke joined the band. The song is about having a relationship with someone, in your home town or wherever. Then moving away and losing contact with them and wondering what they’re up to, if they’re still there, if you went back if they’d be pleased to see you.”
Woes have spent early 2019 working on more new music, and are raring to hit the road again. The band announced a UK headline tour and will be supporting Millencolin as well as Trashboat across Europe and the UK later this year.
Woes are more than just a one trick pony, taking pop punk to new heights by embracing their love of pop, hip hop and R&B, and using elements from these genres in their sound. “There is definitely a conscious effort to start expanding our sound, to bring in different instruments and elements that we haven’t used before,” says DJ, “We love loads of modern hip-hop and RnB, which is something we plan to explore more in 2019. We also like incorporating math-rock and prog chords and progressions into our instrumentals… But we still want that pop punk energy live”.
There’s much more to come from Woes very soon. Fans are encouraged to stay tuned to social media for more information.
