In for some great music? What We Lost share new single Still and announce local run with Polar and Tripsitter | Pretend To Sleep EP out February 7th!


Two months after announcing their new highly anticipated EP “Pretend To Sleep and sharing their lead single “Enough”, Italian post hardcore act What We Lost have returned with another new song. Fans can finally get a second taste of the EP with its second single “Still”. The single will be also available on all the DSPs starting from Friday, January 17th.

“These songs are about solitude, I felt abandoned” shares Simone Galeotti on the song. “During the day I used to lay  down for hours on the carpet of my room. I had no idea what I was doing with my life, I used to hate my job and the city where I felt forced to live in but with time I realized that was all about anxiety. After a year I met a person who basically changed the way I looked at things. In my eyes she was the only one beside me. She helped me so much.” 

“The entire EP refers to a recent period of my life, when I had to leave my hometown for work, and was left by my ex-girlfriend around the same time,” shares frontman Simone Galeotti “I felt like my whole world was crumbling. The lyrics glide through the different phases of this period: solitude, anger, regret and love.”

The EP was produced by Federico Ascari, mixed by Bob Cooper (Nervus, Cutdreams, WSTR) and mastered by Grant Berry (Stand Atlantic, Deaf Havana). On “Pretend To Sleep”, What We Lost’s trademark post-hardcore emo sound is contaminated by hints of shoegaze and post-rock.

What would you do if your life fell apart?

WHAT WE LOST found their answer in music. Their blend of melodic hardcore spaces from energetic to introspective, and back. Debut EP “SHADES”, produced, mixed and mastered by Federico Ascari, is a four track record influenced by the biggest US and UK acts in melodic hardcore. With “SHADES”, What We Lost established themselves as one of the most promising underground Italian bands and secured opening slots for bands such as Acres, Casey, Canvas, Napoleon, Burning Down Alaska and more. After the experiences made possible by this first record, What We Lost took it a step forward when releasing singles “Beds” and “Chamomile” between 2017 and 2018, both produced by Federico Ascari and mixed and mastered by Johnny Renshaw (Casey, Elijah, Blood Youth, Dream State). The singles were released on world famous Youtube channel Dreambound, which opened the band to audiences in the UK, US, Australia & Asia.
Both tracks were handpicked for important digital editorials – “Beds” was added to the Spotify playlist “New Metal Tracks” (440k+ followers), while “Chamomile” was featured in Alternative Press‘s “13 songs you need to hear”, as well as numerous other appearances in playlists drafted by Alternative Press and Kerrang. Thanks to these singles and their unique live shows, the five-piece has gone on to play the most important clubs in Italy, and appeared as support for the Italian tour dates of Fever 333, Underoath, Starset, Tiny Moving Parts and Silent Planet. The band has a ready-to-release 3-song EP, to be published in 2020.


Richmond’s Snotty Punk Trio TALK ME OFF Announces Debut Album and Tour Dates; Launches Vinyl Preorder

Richmond’s snotty punk trio TALK ME OFF is coming out swinging in 2020. Their debut full-length album Cursed will be co-released on February 14th via Smartpunk Records and SAY-10 Records. In addition, physical pre-orders launched today and the first two singles “Worry Wart” and “Insidious” have been added to streaming platforms including Bandcamp so you can get a taste of their short, fast, and to the point punk rock. Physical formats will be available in stores on March 27th. Limited edition vinyl (transparent bone w/ oxblood splatter, black) and exclusive bundles are now available for preorder via Smartpunk and SAY-10 Records. In addition, olive green vinyl is available through Germany’s Gunner Records.

Also, the band will be hitting the road for a weekend to celebrate the release of their new album. They’ll be supporting Teenage Bottlerocket in Virginia Beach on February 15th and playing a formal hometown record release show at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA on February 16th. Additional tour dates are in the pipeline and will be announced at a later date.  


Cursed was recorded at The Orchard in Richmond, engineered by Josh Scolaro, mixed and mastered by Ian Marchionda, and produced by the band. Feel like nothing ever goes your way? Feel like you just can’t live up to expectations? Or do you feel like you’ve become a burden to your friends or loved ones? Cursed is a 12-song installment of the catchiest, harsh, and aggressive punk rock that you’ve never known you needed. It provides you enough to sing-along, but not enough time to catch your breath. Emotionally-driven and tackling everything from hating life to telling religious idiots to keep their opinions to themselves. This musical downer scratches the itch for the angsty teen hating their life all the way to 30-something burnt out corporate basement dweller wishing they weren’t required to wake up the next day.


Forming in the Fall of 2017 with the goal in mind of being an unwavering source of ear-splitting guitar, vivacious bass, steadfast drums and dueling harmonious vocals. Meeting through touring, hanging in bars, screen printing and a general distaste in everyday life; playing in a band together was decided before they had even met. After releasing their first self-titled EP they had dedicated their time to bottling the energy and feel of their live show when stepping into the studio to record Cursed.

TALK ME OFF is Holly Herzog (vocals, guitar), Ryan Cacophony (vocals, bass), and Christian Moquin (drums). Their debut full-length album Cursed will be released on February 14th via Smartpunk Records.
