Debut EP ‘True Love’ out now
Irish rock band Fangclub have released “High” taken from their highly personal new EP titled “True Love”. The 5 track EP was released earlier this summer to critical acclaim as it showcased Fangclub’s unique brand of alternative rock.

Speaking honestly about the music and its lyrical content, frontman Steven King (not the horror writer) said this of “High”.
“I wrote High while on tour with The Cribs. I think they influenced my writing on this from a visceral standpoint. It’s a little more 70’s in parts. We tried to use old vintage amps, mics and pedals. Alex Loring and Tom Andrews, who produced the “True Love” EP, also sang with me on this track. We had vocals going through a rotary speaker which added an incredible and dreamlike theme to the song.
High, in parts, is about allowing yourself to be used and drained for the greater good. It’s kind of a sarcastic take on “misery loves company”. We made it quite a pop song too. I don’t know why I seem to relish in that kind of hellish, happy juxtaposition.”
True Love EP Track List
- Heart Is A Landmine
- Sweater Forever
On September 28th Fangclub play a one off date at Underground in Gloucester.
2018 has been a busy one for Fangclub, having toured with The Cribs, and Milk Teeth and Nervus as well as rocking the UK with their first headline tour. 2017 was a hell of a year for the band too. Not only did they release their self-titled debut album, they headlined their own tour in the UK and Europe as well as playing shows with Biffy Clyro, Muse, Pixies, and SWMRS.
