HOMESTATE - Drop Brand New Single "Sunny Day" Ahead of EP

Perth's pop-punk five-piece Homestate are back with another catchy banger in the form of new single "Sunny Day". The single comes as the second to be released off upcoming self-titled EP out Friday, November 29, with a launch show taking place the day after in their hometown to celebrate!

"Sunny Day" follows on from the previous single "Sick Sad World" in the way that both singles could have been pulled straight from the early 2000s with their punk vibes reminiscent of Sum 41 and the like. The track is mixed and mastered by Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, Woes, As It Is) and is about taking time to be the right person for the sake of someone else after having been tainted by bad relationships and finally finding something good. Vocalist Chad Fraser tell us, "after a bad run of relationships, coming into something that’s finally good for you can be hard to adjust to. Sunny Day is inspired by long nights spent awake overthinking your every move. The song is about taking the time to be the right person for the sake of someone else, it’s pleading for the right person to wait for you because this time it’s real."

The EP as a whole, mixed and mastered by Seb Barlow, proved to be a rewarding experience for the band as Barlow produced so many of the artists that have inspired their own music. The EP tackles relationships, the good and the bad, and how damaging past hurt and heartbreak can be. Homestate’s EP aims to act as a buffer for listeners and their life experiences, to give them a voice where they feel they might not have one. Fraser explains "each of the songs can be told from multiple perspectives and at some point in everyone’s life, they’re bound to relate. Life is hard, love is even harder, but without both, nothing would be worthwhile".

Homestate formed in 2017 as the refined project of years of writing and playing together in different bands. The boys began building their sound together, drawing influence from the likes of artists such as The Wonder Years, State Champs and The Story So Far and in 2018, Homestate released its debut album 'A World of Second Chances'. With the better part of a decade of experience already under their belt, Homestate were quick to support an array of touring acts including Mayday Parade (US), The Maine (US), Waterparks (US) and Sydney favorites, Yours Truly. Homestate will launch their brand new self-titled EP to their homegrown audience at Lucy's Love Shack in Perth on Saturday, November 30 alongside friends Carrington, Triggerlip and Abandon Limbo.

"Sunny Day" is out now and available on all digital and streaming platforms at 'Homestate' EP will be available Friday, November 29. Tickets for Homestate's launch show are available at the door only, so put this one in your calendar and get down early!
