MUSIC NEWS: A Twenty Something Anthem From Newcastle's Eat Your Heart Out
Newcastle, Australia alt-pop quartet Eat Your Heart Out - Caitlin Henry (vocals), Will Moore (guitar), Dom Cant (bass), and Jake Cronin (drums) - have announced their second album Can't Stay Forever.
It arrives on September 9 via Fearless Records.
But before September rolls around, the band has also as of last week shared a video for their new single Twenty Something. Watch it here:
"Twenty Something is something a bit different for us as it's definitely one of the more poppy songs we've ever written," Henry offers. "It was written in mid-2021 with Stevie Knight. It's about the weird stage of being in your mid-20s and seeing everyone around you in all different stages of life. It can definitely throw some doubt and make me question if I'm on the right path sometimes, even when I usually feel very solid in my choices. It's definitely one of the more lighthearted tracks on the record." About the album, Henry offers, "Everything always moves into a new phase. It might feel bad at the time. When you look back on change, it's always for the best. The pandemic showed me that in a way. It changed everything we'd been planning for the band. We just had to work our jobs and be at home. We established more adult routines, which gave us a chance to experience normality. Nothing is permanent. Anything can change at any time. You have to see the positives."
EYHO have amassed millions of streams and earned acclaim from NME, Alternative Press, Rock Sound, Hysteria Mag, and more. The band has consistently uplifted audiences worldwide since arriving on the scene back in 2012. They served up three fan favorite EPs - Distance Between Us (2015), Carried Away (2017), and Mind Games (2017) - before delivering their proper full-length debut, Florescence, in 2019. Carousel clocked 2.6 million Spotify streams and counting. Hysteria Mag raved, "Florescence is a coming of age masterpiece from a band quickly becoming one of Australia's finest rock exports." In between, they hit the road with Trophy Eyes, Hands Like Houses, Knuckle Puck, Real Friends, and more. In late 2020, they turned their attention to what would become Can't Stay Forever. Each member spent almost the entirety of the next year penning songs and bouncing ideas back and forth, nodding to formative influences such as Jimmy Eat World and Taking Back Sunday. The process enabled the musicians to naturally progress individually and also as a collective.
Pre-orders for Can't Stay Forever are live now and available here.
