Sad Boys Club rise continues as they announce a run of live dates for the rest of thBC Introducing (where they were named Artist of the Week), Sad Boys Club are firmly in the ascendancy.e year, including their biggest headline show to date at the newly opened Colours Hoxton on 7th December, where they will celebrate the release of their upcoming EP, four shades of the transitional phase. Other dates include support shows with Giant Rooks, Spector and SPINN, as well as dates in Derby, Bournemouth, Milton Keynes and Southampton (all dates here).
The live dates will see the band perform their latest single, ‘Dead Fridays’. A scintillating rush of guitar-based melody supported by glistening synths, ‘Dead Fridays’ possesses the kind of immediately addictive hook that’s always been a hallmark of timeless indie singles. And in frontman Jacob Wheldon they have a distinctive voice who can hone in on universal experiences with an engaging sense of charisma.
As with almost all of their material, ‘Dead Fridays’ was produced by the band’s bassist Pedro Caetano Leite – his energised recording growing from their DIY ethos. It’s the first track to preview their new EP four shades of the transitional phase which the band will release independently later this year.
“‘Dead Fridays’ is the first song of a collection that explores themes of transition, loss and the turbulence that brings, and how to make sense of that,” says Wheldon. “It’s the most angsty song on the record; a loner anthem and a scream into the void. Everyone loves those.”
