girlfriends Announce New Album, Drop New Singles

Pop-punk duo girlfriends (Travis Mills + Nick Gross)announce their new album (e)motion sickness out June 17th via Big Noise and release two exhilarating new tracks, “High Again” and “Toaster for a Swim.” 

“High Again” mixes different contradictions with a lyrical playfulness akin to Panic! At The Disco and begins with a simple guitar strum, while “Toaster For A Swim” takes the drama of a breakup and turns it up to 11 with a fiery blend of riffs and breathy vocals.

(e)motion sickness is the highly anticipated follow-up to the bands’ self-titled debut, which was produced by John Feldmann (5 Seconds Of Summer, blink-182, The Used), and included standout tracks like “California,” “Where Were You” (featuring Travis Barker), and “Jessica.” Girlfriends conjure songs that are once pleasingly familiar, warmly unique and passionately vulnerable and (e)motion sickness is just that.

“This is the most vulnerable I’ve been through my music,” Mills says. “The music I made in the past was fun, but it wasn’t an accurate representation of anything I was going through in my life. I had profound experiences and tragic losses, but I didn’t talk about them. I struggled with severe anxiety and depression. So, there’s a lot in girlfriends’ songs that I’ve never said before. This kind of music really allows those topics to come to life and accentuate them.”
