Scottish pop punk band Woes have been making a stir the past few months, touring with the likes of Neck Deep, Seaway and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

The band are now pleased to commence a new chapter, with the release of forthcoming EP ‘Self Help‘ on Friday 4th May via UNFD.

As a taster of what to expect, the band have revealed new single ‘HLB2‘.

I remember when I first demoed HLB2 I was so excited about it! I knew it had something really special. When I first started working on it, it was a totally guitar based song that sounded like what you would expect from us. When we started working on it as a band, we couldn’t get it together so it went on the backburner for a while. Then after a month or two we looked at it with fresh eyes, we were like, ‘OK, holy shit, now we’re on to something.’ and the whole song was pretty much re-written from there, barring a couple bits from the original arrangement.

LISTEN

Lyrically, the song is about trying to get it together with someone you have a casual thing with, and it not working out and the kind of self-reflections that come from that kind of experience. It’s something that has happened to me a few times I guess, and at the time I couldn’t really see why. Looking back now, I was just putting all my time and energy AND money into music, and not really leaving anything of myself for someone to want to be in a relationship with. So I tried to put myself in that headspace of, ‘what is this person’s problem’ and gradual realisation of your own flaws over time – that it was your fault all along that things couldn’t work out.

The single follows the sharing of previous tracks ‘Losing Time‘, ‘Real World‘ and ‘High On You‘ that all feature on ‘Self Help‘.
