Bridge The Border‘s ‘Congratulations Everybody’s Gone’ EP is almost upon us, with its release into the world on Friday, June 29. Today, they are releasing a second cut from the EP into the world – and it’s a punk banger entitled Places!
The EP is available now to Pre-Order on all digital outlets and this single will be available from this Friday to stream at Spotify and Apple Music. The previous single “Congratulations feat. Chris Vernon is online to stream now.
Bridge The Border’s Drummer/Vocalist Darcy Handley stepped in as co-writer of this track. Handley describes Places as a “Weird sort of love song, dedicated to a future relationship. It feels like a fight, littered with anecdotes of past relationships mistakes, but the chorus reinforces a message of hope and perseverance. The lyrics in the bridge leave the story at a cliff hanger depending on how you perceive it, but the large instrumental ending can feel like the resolve of the fight or a bittersweet end to the relationship, with a melancholy piano phrase as the last lingering note.”
The EP was Produced, mixed and mastered at Perception Studios by Christopher Vernon – and the single ‘Congratulations’ comes with a video clip produced by Dillon Pearce Media & Abele Productions. Bridge The Border have cemented their place in the Melbourne music scene, supporting a handful of impressive bands such as Deez Nuts, Earth Caller, Ocean Sleeper and Terra.
The EP Showcases collaborations from Cassie Sutton of Terra and Christopher Vernon from Resist Records latest addition Better Half. Their newest single ‘Congratulations’ pushes Bridge The Border into their heaviest sound yet, Nobelius’ powerfully sung cleans soaring over Handley’s ferocious screams during the chorus mark a huge growth in this bands musical prowess.
Bridge The Border’s EP ‘Congratulations, Everybody’s Gone’ will be released on Friday, June 29 and pre-orders will be available from Friday, May 11. New single Places will be available on Spotify and Apple Music from this Friday, June 15. For more information, go to the band’s official Facebook page.
