At the tail end of 2019 the Burnt Tapes returned back to the Ranch production house with producer Daly George (Creeper, Milk Teeth, Boston Manor, Darko) to record a couple of new tracks to bookend their debut album, ‘Never Better’.
A year after the album release, they present their first single ‘Greek Wood’. The track sees the band return on top form, by delivering the listener a healthy dose of what Burnt Tapes do best: Melodic punk rock with lyrics of regret.
Vocalist/Guitarist Pan says ”’Greek Wood’ is a coming of age song in all the wrong ways, lost youth, lost love, lost time. It is not a penis metaphor, although it could be if you want it to be.”
The band had to put various tour plans on hold whilst we all keep safe and sort out this COVID-19 problem, but expect them to return to the road as soon as possible.
Burnt Tapes are known for creating their own unique brand of melodic punk-rock: ‘regret punk’. Inspired by emotive heavy-hitters like Iron Chic, Hot Water Music and The Lawrence Arms, Burnt Tapes create stories through gruff vocals, layered melodies and tattoo-worthy lyrical twists.
