Everyday Sidekicks - How "without 'Hope' for things to get better, life can get on top of you"

"Everyday Sidekicks has always been a strange name to people, but to us it's just a representation of the little guy. We wanted our music to relate to everyone in some way and we feel everyone can relate to the Sidekick in a comic book: never quite being the hero but you're always there when you are needed, standing by through thick and thin, no matter how tough the road ahead can get,” said Archie Hatfield, vocalist of the Bristolian quartet. Today Everyday Sidekicks announce their sophomore EP, Hope will be released on March 31st. They add "Hope to us is a hugely important factor in life. You constantly have obstacles thrown at you that you need to overcome, times change and sometimes it's not always good things that come your way. Without Hope for things to get better, life can get on top of you".

They shared first single, "Fracture", which they say is about "the way image effects the music industry. A lot of bands careers can be made by image alone and we feel it's a big insult to smaller bands that work hard and have good music, that haven't been given a shot due to them not being marketable enough. We felt Fracture was a good lead single as it showcased our new style of music. It's a lot more riff based than our previous releases and shows a lot more energy".
