Loverbreakers announce a change of release date for their highly anticipated debut album Primary Colours, will be released 25 June 2021 via Wiretap Records.
Lovebreakers recently premiered with Brooklyn Vegan, their latest single and video Laura.
Originally from Birmingham, Lovebreakers formed in 2017, four friends uniting, Jack, Christian, Chino and Marcus. After self-releasing their first EP Social Hell through their own Sabbath City Records. The band also toured extensively through 2018 with a number of sold-out hometown shows.
Being a band and trying to release new music and get that music to fans during this pandemic has been a struggle for almost every band on the planet, and Lovebreakers are no exception. They are currently booked to support the mighty Social Distortion on their UK and EU tour this summer after being handpicked by Social D frontman, Mike Ness.
Vocalist and guitarist Jack Perry explains “It’s been a setback for sure. We had a few tours booked in alongside some festival shows which we were really looking forward to. It is kind of put the band on hold in terms of reaching a wider audience through live shows. But on the flip side, we have tried to stay productive in other ways. We have focussed a lot on writing another record and have experimented with the recording process and the idea of producing ourselves. It’s opened up the band a little more and has given us a clearer idea of how we want to sound moving forward. Without the pressures of being in a recording studio, we have had the time to sit back and experiment which has been really healthy for us. We’re more understanding and have a clearer vision of what our band is.”
Despite this, Lovebreakers have made a debut album to stand the test of time. Sonically, like a blur of The Ramones style energy and melody with a dark, gritty storyteller nature akin to Elvis Costello or The Clash. ‘Primary Colours’ is just that, awash with brightness and contrast, the songs vibrant nature jumps from the track and into the listener’s ears, heart and mind. The confidence and songwriting ability is that of a band so much older and with a lot ‘more’ under its belt.
The release of Primary Colours coincides with the band opening up for Social Distortion across their EU / UK tour. You can find more Lovebreakers news via their official website, Facebook page and Twitter from where they tweet as @LOVEBREAKERSx.
