Woes debut album sees Woes’ sound take flight, blurring the lines between pop punk, hip hop and R&B. “I think it’s the most honest and complete representation of what we want to sound like”, explains DJ. “It has elements of pop-punk, hip-hop, prog-metal, RnB and flows between them super naturally. We approached with a perspective that matches up more closely with what you would expect from a rapper, rather than a pop-punk band, which gave us some real stand-out lyrics to go along with the music”.
The record is produced by Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, WSTR, Roam) and debuts the addition of guitarist Luke Bovill to the band.
“Awful Truth is a record about the realities of the progression of our band over the last 18 months”, says DJ, “Going from some guys occasionally playing gigs and trying to practice every week. to playing a sold out show at Brixton, having people turned away from our Slam Dunk sets because they were full, touring the UK and Europe 5 times in a year.”
The band also recently announced they will be playing at Leeds Stylus on September 14th, supporting Trash Boat.
