"Life's A Brittany"
Accompanied By The Announce Of
Over My Dead Body EP
Out May 12 via Big Noise
Ahead Of Upcoming Arena Tours with
Avril Lavigne and The Used
Today, girlfriends (Travis Mills & Nick Gross) are thrilled to announce their Over My Dead Body EP will be coming out May 12th via Big Noise. Produced by Andrew Goldstein (Machine Gun Kelly, Papa Roach, blackbear), the EP is a collection of tracks that encompass a passion for life, paired with their signature pop punk charm.
Speaking on the EP, Travis shares, “These songs came about in a completely new way for us as a band because they were made one by one with some time in between but somehow sound so cohesive and like we wrote them all that way on purpose. We got to do a lot of cool things while making the EP and being able to tour while recording, really informed some of the songs. They’re annoyingly catchy, the hooks are big and better than ever and it’s a statement for us as a new band.”
To celebrate, the duo has shared a brand new single, “Life’s A Brittany,” out now. Produced by Andrew Goldstein, the sweet, acoustic-guitar driven track juxtaposes the deeper meaning of the lyrics stemming from pain, purity and expression leading into a cathartic build at the end. Listen to “Life’s A Brittany” now HERE.
“‘Brittany’ was one of those songs that started off as a complete joke in my head,” says Travis. “I almost felt guilty writing it because it’s so conversational and ‘easy,’ that I had to question if it was good or not. The beauty about working with a producer like Goldstein is he does a really great job at stripping away the ‘rules’ of songwriting. If it’s good it’s good, and I think it’s a song a lot of people would be scared to make, but it hits the nail on the head of who we are not only as a band but as people.”
Last month, the duo released their new single “Over My Dead Body.” The catchy track references the raw past of a toxic relationship and brings a cathartic release with melodic emotional intensity paired with newly found freedom. Listen to “Over My Dead Body” now HERE.
girlfriends is currently out supporting Avril Lavigne on her upcoming SOLD OUT European Tour, visiting 10 cities across Europe including a show tonight in Amsterdam at AFAS Live, before heading back to the U.S. for a short East Coast run of headlining dates.
Their East Coast headlining tour will kick off on May 15th in Chicago at Cobra Lounge. They will visit Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. before wrapping on May 21st in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right. The Brooklyn date is being promoted by the Spotify team as part of their hot new "Spotify Stages Presents" concert series. VIP upgrades are now available for the East Coast tour and their UK headlining shows, including the SOLD OUT show in London on May 24th. Check out the VIP upgrades now HERE.
In addition, girlfriends will also be joining The Used and Pierce The Veil on their "fast selling" Creative Control Tour. They’ll be hopping on the tour starting in Asbury Park on June 12th, hitting top markets like New York City, Cincinnati, Dallas, Irvine and more before wrapping up in Phoenix on July 2nd. See below for a complete list of dates and get ticket info HERE.
With 93+ million global streams to date and roughly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify, the prolific pair conjure songs that are at once pleasingly familiar and warmly unique. Inspired by the style of caffeinated pop-punk that first shaped them, the group’s music is a vehicle for self-expression and catharsis, a means to process grief, uncertainty, and renewed vigor for life destined to connect with others who struggle.
SPIN called girlfriends’ self-titled debut “polished, impassioned, and commanding,” comparing their cross-genre appeal to MGK and Trippie Redd.
