Post-Hardcore raconteurs, CONVERSATION have teamed up with Alternative Press to premiere their brand new single “I Can Play The Outlaw” today. The track touches on the topic that truth is rarely welcomed with open arms, but is still something to be sought after. Filled with aggression and hook, this song is just a taste of what CONVERSATION have to offer. Fans can stream the in-your-face track and music video today at https://www.altpress.com/features/conversation-new-song-video-i-can-play-the-outlaw/.
The first single from the band’s upcoming two-part EP, The Honesty EPs – Romance | Reflection, due out September 6th, is a look into the high-energy live show that has earned the band spots opening for acts like Silent Planet, Enter Shikari, Hands Like Houses, Our Last Night and many more.
“When we were coming up with the concept for this first video, we wanted to showcase what it was like to be at a CONVERSATION show and a raw look at what our lives look like. We had accumulated a lot of live footage so it was an easy move to build everything from there” shares vocalist Timothy Bolton on the video. “I Can Play The Outlaw” was the perfect track for this style of video as it speaks to the attitude that we exude on stage. We don’t expect everyone to like us; but we’re incredibly happy when we meet people that see what we’re doing and want to be involved. We’re all over the moon to be releasing this music into the world.”
Part one of the upcoming two-part EP, Romance is an introduction and first chapter that showcases the many different directions CONVERSATION are willing and able to go. From the crushing, chaotic instrumentation on “True Romance” to the more melody and hook driven work on “You’ve Made Yourself Perfectly Clear”, this EP shows the works of a band who believe in the music they love, but are not afraid to step outside of its borders.
