Flatfoot 56 stream new song “How Long” off upcoming EP “The Vancouver Session”

Celtic punk rock band Flatfoot 56 are streaming a brand new song called “How Long.” The track appears on their upcoming EP, The Vancouver Sessions and is the only brand new original song on the release. Campfire jams are one thing, but Flatfoot 56 takes it to another level with this new tune.

Here is what the band had to say about the song:

“This is the only brand new song on The Vancouver Sessions EP. The song includes back up vocals by our singer’s wife Vanessa, and also includes a first for Flatfoot in that it utilizes the brighter sounds of a high string guitar. The song’s lyrics talk about the yearning for something more than all of the chaos the world seems to be throwing around. Consistent with many of Flatfoot 56’s lyrical themes, this one leaves the listener hoping and looking for something more.”

The full EP will be out on May 25. For now, head over to RiotFest, where they have also premiered the track “Cain.”
