LIFTED FROM FORTHCOMING JUNE EP ‘ADORED’
APPEARING AT THE GREAT ESCAPE – THE ARCH (CLASH STAGE), THURSDAY 17TH MAY
PLAYING OVER 16 FESTIVALS THIS SUMMER
AUTUMN UK TOUR ON SALE NOW INC. SCALA
Sea Girls are excited to unveil their huge new single, Too Much Fun. One of the most enthralling young indie guitar bands to have emerged in recent times, the new track received its first play last night by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens. It is lifted from an upcoming EP ‘Adored’, due for release on 5th June.
Renowned for their frantic and frenetic sold-out live shows, Sea Girls will be bringing their festival-ready anthems to The Great Escape next weekend, playing the Clash stage at The Arch on Thursday 17th May.
Primed for breakthrough in 2018, the band will release their third EP on the 1st anniversary of their debut release, ‘Call Me Out’, and indeed their first headline show, with three brand new tracks added to their already powerhouse back catalogue. Produced by Larry Hibbitt, this new collection of songs could and should see the band rise well above the chasing pack during their busy festival season.
The EP will also be available to pre-order as a special packaged 7″ vinyl, featuring recent single ‘Eat Me Whole’ which is currently gathering momentum and repeat spins across Radio 1 and Radio X.
Vocalist and songwriter Henry Camamile describes ‘Too Much Fun’:
“It’s a city story about a complicated chaotic summer of love. It’s about capturing the excitement and anticipation from our youth. Triggered by hearing a siren out the window, the lyrics are of memories flooding back of the previous summer’s excess, humour and playing with fire. And what’s more dangerous than crossing your best friend. Terrible behaviour.
“The words “wanna see the king play in the park” harks to reading about Bowie playing at a bandstand in Beckenham and us all seeing the Kings Of Leon as kids forming the crazed idea of forming a band together one day that could support them.
“Fundamentally it’s telling someone, maybe a friend that they party a little too much, too often. Maybe that’s the letter of love…”
It might sound simple, but the best things tend to be, and in Sea Girls we have one of those bands whose growing collection of tunes resonate with an audience who want an easy escape from a complicated world.
The band will be playing at over sixteen festivals this summer, followed by a UK headline tour this coming Autumn. The run kicks off in Nottingham on 4th October, taking in Glasgow, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, London’s Scala on 18th October (only the band’s fourth ever London show), Brighton and Southampton, and rounding off in Bristol on the 21st October.
They have also announced two shows in Ireland, playing Dublin on 23rd October and Belfast on 24th, tickets for both go on sale from 9th May at 10am. All shows are 14+, except for Scala which is 16+, and Dublin and Belfast, which are both 18+.
Support comes from The Pale White, except Newcastle, where Vistas support. Tickets are on sale now via https://www.seagirls.net/live
