BRAND NEW POP PUNK CREW ANNOUNCE DEBUT RELEASE PLANS & REVEAL NEW VIDEO!
Brit Newcomers DOWNCAST drop their ultra-magnetic self-titled debut EP on
Friday 11th January 2019. In anticipation, the UK pop-punkers have just
revealed a lyric video for their blistering debut track, Anthurium –
Channelling emotive drive with addictive melodies, DOWNCAST wear their
hearts on their sleeves. Drawing influence from everyone from seasoned
luminaries such as The Wonder Years and Alkaline Trio, to highly-rated UK
stewards ROAM and Neck Deep, the band’s reach is notably diverse, and their
sound is intoxicating.
DOWNCAST were only formed this year, however, the trio have wasted no time
perfecting their set and working tirelessly on their debut EP with revered
producer, Ian Sadler (Anavae, ROAM). Lead Vocalist, Liam Edwards comments:
“We wrote and demoed the EP in our bedrooms over the course of about five
months. I wanted to write something honest.I hope that this EP will resonate
with anyone who is going through a hard time and helps them to feel less
alone. I’ve used putting my thoughts and feelings into songs as a way of
coping with negative emotions for a while now; it gives them a long-term
purpose. I feel that negative things in your life often reveal positive
meanings over time. If the things I’ve written about never happened, these
five songs wouldn’t exist today.”
DOWNCAST don’t reveal their debut EP until January, but it is certainly
worth the wait. Expressing five slabs of truly engaging heartfelt melodic
punk, this is a band that are destined to break out to a national audience.
Over the coming months, the industrious tunesmiths will release a series of
singles and videos, as well as announcing their first UK tour. Big things
lay ahead for the band.
