The mini-album contains the raw power that TEAR are renowned for across their live shows; it is a fully charged and sonically tight collection of female-fronted, lo-fi rock music that will be sure to earmark the band as ones to watch in 2017. It was recorded in two parts; one with Tim Burgess and Jim Spencer at The Charlatans’ Big Mushroom studio in Cheshire, and the other with Toby Kidd at Bark Studios with additional production from Victoria Freund.


Track listing for the mini-album as follows:

1. The Sprawl

2. Never Fade Away

3. Nothing You Can’t Have

4. Careless Again

5. Beautiful

6. Begging

7. Waiting Room

TEAR are Camille, Ben, Eve, Jed.
