UK rockers Eva Plays Dead have announced two release shows in Nottingham and London to celebrate their forthcoming EP The Fix, out on 27th April 2018 via Playing Dead Records.
- 26/04/2018 – London, Thousand Island
- 30/04/2018 – Nottingham, Bodega
Sticking to their DIY roots Eva Plays Dead have also set up a PledgeMusic campaign to help fund the release, which has already hit 17% of the target since launching on Thursday 8th March. The band have set up Playing Dead Records to release the hugely personal EP in order to maintain full creative control.
Eva Plays Dead have also released the video for their new single “Get Back”, which you can see below.
The band comment on the new single:
Life – life doesn’t always seem to go to how we want it to and living with a mental health condition like Bipolar Disorder can make you feel like you’re stuck living inside your head. “Get Back” has been a song that has become incredibly important for us whilst dealing with Tiggy’s battles with mental health during 2017. The visuals throughout this song and video are created by Tiggy from real experiences and emotions she has faced before ultimately being confirmed as having Bipolar Disorder. This song is just the beginning of our new direction and positive future – we’re hoping that our new music and experiences will open up discussions surrounding mental health issues.
Raucous, raw, and topped off with frontwoman Tiggy’s thunderous vocals, The Fix is a reinvention of classic rock at its best. Listen for the peaks of track four, “Bones”, or the heady anger of opener “Spin” – this is an irresistible no-holds-barred five-track barrage. An angrier release than its predecessor Sounds of the Written Word, The Fix is a highly personal release, detailing Tiggy’s relationship with bipolar disorder.
Eva Plays Dead are a young band with an already impressive history: notable supports include SOiL, New Year’s Day, Alien Ant Farm, Skindred, Devilskin and more, and the band have garnered the attention of Kerrang!, Planet Rock Radio and TeamRock amongst others.
