Following the success of their popular 2013 Crocodile Tears EP and subsequent tours, South Carolina pop-punk band Brigades has announced plans to release a new acoustic EP titled Our Lives Unfold on March 31st via Pure Noise Records. Starting today, fans can pre-order the new EP at
In addition to the announcement, the band has teamed up with to reveal a lyric video for their brand new song called “Under My Skin,” which can be viewed now at
““Under My Skin” is a song about being uncomfortable with who I was and the life I was leading,” says vocalist Darren Young. “Feeling alone in the world. I was really blocked off from my friends, family, band, and co-workers. This song really helped me rip that piece of hopelessness and self-pity out of me. I was really glad the band liked it.”
Brigades latest offering, Our Lives Unfold, features beautiful, acoustic renditions of fan favorite tracks “The Writing On The Wall” and “Small Time Crooks,” and two new songs, “Bruiser” and the newly released “Under My Skin.”
Our Lives Unfold was a little project that Charlie [Jackson] and I have been wanting to do for a while to show a different/softer side to the Brigades,” adds Young. “Things just never worked out in earlier attempts. We recorded this in the middle of recording our full-length. We’re a couple of night owls, so we figured we’d just knock it out while we had the time. We’d been working really hard, so it added some fun to the mix. I’m proud of it and grateful for the opportunity to get that out.
Brigades will be touring this spring with Such Gold, Koji and Tommy Boys. Tickets are on sale now.
