Today, Edinburgh pop-punk four piece Woes have dropped their passionate and powerful new single ‘Winter Sun’ with the German station, Radio Fritz.

Speaking about the single the band said, “Winter Sun is our love letter. Relationships are rarely easy and we wanted to explore the emotional journey that people take together and not leave out the difficult parts. That might sound grim, but it’s a happy, introspective song about love and how it will change your life.”woes_promo

Woes have also now signed to Rude Records (Set It Off, Zebrahead, American Hi-Fi, Knuckle Puck, Less Than Jake), and have announced details of their forthcoming five track self-titled EP, which is due for release on 25th November 2016 via Rude Records.

The band’s debut single ‘Worst Friend’ dropped little over a month a go and has since received critical acclaim from the likes of Kerrang! (in On The K! Stereo), Kerrang! TV (Incoming), Rock Sound (Exposure), Upset, Alt Press, Punktastic and many more…

Music had always came easy to the members of Woes, who had toured the UK and Europe multiple times in previous bands. All while holding down serious jobs, supporting loved ones and carving a name for themselves as talented performers in their own right. Creatively spent and losing focus, towards the end of 2015, they turned a mirror on themselves and decided to make a change. At the beginning of 2016 Woes was born, with one goal. To do absolutely everything involved in being a musician with 100% effort and application, no excuses.

The early part of 2016 was spent writing, the band turned to Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, ROAM, WSTR) to help them realise their vision in the studio. Often working 19-20 hour days recording and perfecting songs, making alterations minutes before parts were recorded to create a 5 track EP that truly reflects the best they have to offer. Songs that veer from buoyant messages of hope to crushing despair and back again, without ever losing direction.

With years of touring experience their shows are full of anthemic choruses, tight vocal harmonies and huge, thundering drums. Woes are ready to blow all expectations away with an EP that pushes genre forward with new layers of intricacy and depth, whilst packing in the youthful energy and massive choruses fans of the genre have come to know and love.
