German pop punk band Holly Would Surrender are “flipping the bird to conformity”. They’ve announced they are releasing a new EP via White Russian Records on May 26, titled Wish You Were Bread, and what do you know? Dying Scene has got it a few days early. The inspiration for this record came out of a unique place for the band. Lead singer Ole says, “We wanted to try something new this time. We were in a situation, where we on one hand, [we] had to stop as band or on the other hand, work on new material, and besides that, find new members to join.
In this process we decided to work with friends in other bands on our material to get a new focus and expand our sound and music. Every song got a name on it you probably know. Oshie Bichar (Beartooth, City Lights), Callum Amies (the bottom line), Andy Vossenberg (the 101s) and Chris Piquette (Trophy Wives) We really love how the EP turned out. It’s something new but it’s still us. The mixing part took place in the Wachusett studios by Michael Harmon, who we met on tour with Four Year Strong. The mastering was made by Jay Mass (Defeater, State Champs and many more..) We hope you like it as much as we do and will enjoy it!”
