END OF FASHION Back in fashion

Local favourites End of Fashion have announced their return to the scene with their first new material in seven years, and two intimate shows at The Aardvark on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27.

The July shows mark the onset of a new phase for End Of Fashion with a new line up, new material and an album slated for release early 2020. The first single is expected to drop this September. The as-yet-untitled album follows on from 2004’s Rough Diamonds and Too Careful EPs, 2006’s self-titled debut album, 2008’s Book Of Lies and 2012’s Holiday Trip Of A Lifetime.

Of the upcoming live shows, singer Justin Burford says, “There’s so much going on and I’m so excited by everything. Mainly, I’m buzzed about getting these songs up on stage for people to hear, finally. It’s been a long time coming; some of these songs have been in my pocket for a handful of years now. The new tunes are working really well with the old stuff in the rehearsal room. Which is perfect, because my whole mission statement for this album has been to treat it like the spiritual successor to our first one. The sound of a band playing together. And I’ve got the band to pull it off now too. Everyone is seasoned and total pros.”

End of Fashion play The Aardvark on Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27. Tickets on sale now.
