Announce new single/video for 'I Can't Feel', watch the video - HERE New EP 'Afterglow' - out on UNFD April 12th

Ahead of the release of their hotly anticipated EP Afterglow, Sydney pop-punkers YOURS TRULY today reveal new single, 'I Can't Feel'. Previous singles 'High Hopes' and 'Circles' have already garnered a combined 5 million streams, and this emotionally charged follow up is undoubtedly going to ramp up the momentum. 

Detailing lead vocalist Mikaila Delgado's experience with a rare connective tissue disorder, the track is a commanding cry of both frustration and triumph. It comes alongside a visually arresting video which features a voodoo doll of the frontwoman being stabbed with a pin and the pain translating to her body.

Since being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome at two, Delgado's life has navigated aches, pains, dislocations and fatigue. But letting this get in the way of her music career was never an option. 

"When I found heavy music on YouTube I just knew this was what I wanted to do. I knew it wouldn’t be easy to perform at that level but I wasn’t going to let something I was born with stop me... I was too obsessed with this idea of singing in a band and touring the world that the consequences became irrelevant," she says. 

"‘I Can’t Feel’ is about the struggles where you’re doubting yourself because of a condition you can’t control. Since EDS is an invisible disability, I sometimes have a feeling of having to prove my pain and discomfort for it to be legitimate to other people. This song is really special to me because I’ve always found it hard to explain the way I feel - what other people can’t see. Putting it in a song allowed me to say the things I’ve wanted to say for the past 21 years." 

Sign to UNFD Records and announce new EP 'Afterglow' - April 12th

Fresh off signing to Australian label UNFD (Hellions, Dream State, Ocean Grove), YOURS TRULY have announced their forthcoming EP, Afterglow. Set to be released on April 12th, 2019, the band are giving fans the first taste of Afterglow with lead single “Circles”

The past decade has seen Sydney, Australia, become a hotbed for underground music, with emo, pop-punk, and hardcore acts catapulting from local heroes to worldwide phenomenons. For years, YOURS TRULY watched their fellow countrymen and women take the next leap – and now the Sydney-based quartet are poised for a similar breakthrough of their own.

Buoyed by the hit single “High Hopes” – which has amassed more than 1 million Spotify plays, 2 million YouTube views, and a coveted rotation spot on Triple J – the band’s new EP Afterglow (their first release for Australian label UNFD), is in some ways the perfect amalgam of their internationally known Down Under peers: It’s pop music that avoids overly saccharine sentiments, rock that cuts its muscle with the right amount of melody.

“The scene in Australia is so close-knit,” says vocalist Mikaila, who formed the band with guitarist Teddie in 2016, later adding guitarist Lachlan and drummer Bradley. “Everyone’s so community-driven. We were forming at a time when there were a lot of Australian bands getting their international breaks, and we were looking to them for motivation. Seeing bands you’ve seen in smaller venues have that success was inspiring.”

They released their debut EP, Too Late For Apologies, in 2017, and soon found themselves sharing stages with the likes of Say Anything, We The Kings, and Tonight Alive, the latter of whom handpicked the band to open a pair of sold-out Australian shows. Along the way, they’ve endeared themselves to fans around the world, including an invitation to the iconic Download Festival in summer 2019.

They’ll be bringing with them the hard-hitting, emotionally resonant Afterglow. From the syncopated energy of “Circles,” through the resolve to rise above personal trauma on the double-time, frantic “I Can’t Feel,” Afterglow  is a collection of songs that speaks to the strength within. That’s front and centre on “High Hopes,” which Punktastic dubbed a “summer anthem” and details a failed relationship and the resulting disillusionment. 

But unlike many of their peers, YOURS TRULY don’t wallow in their pity. They use their fire as fuel for self-improvement, pushing past any obstacle that seeks to derail their dreams. It’s the optimistic, driven mentality they’ve used to get this far.

“We’re very positive,” Mikaila says. “We’re not going to put out songs where we sound super angry, but we still want to make sure every song we write has something important to say.”

The band are currently on tour in Australia with The Faim, and have been announced to play Download Festival UK in June.
