Of the new track, vocalist Fraser Simpson says, “22 Reasons is a song that we’re all really proud of. It’s pretty different to what we normally do so we’re stoked to finally share it! This was the song that started to shape our album, it got the ball rolling and created the momentum needed to push through with this project during what was a difficult time for everyone in 2021. The lyrics are an honest introspection into a breakup I went through, how my perspective had changed from being with someone so closely to then being on the outside looking in. That was the hardest at first, knowing someone for so long to then only being able to see their light from a distance. Looking back I can see it was an essential part of my own growth, the hardship of that time led me to question what I was doing with my life. I had been just waiting for my colours to come through. This album is about my journey over the last few years but it is something we all go through. It’s about trying to find out who you are and who you want to be, trying to find your colours. 22 Reasons is the last single before our album comes out on July 1st, we’re so grateful to everyone that has supported us on this journey! Whether you’ve been with us for a while or are brand new please keep spreading the word!”

The follow-up to the band’s 2021 stand-alone single “Metaphors” and 2020 breakthrough EP ‘Tough Love,’ ‘Waiting For Your Colours’ is the culmination of 5 years of relentless hustle (not to mention a boatload of blood, sweat, and tears).
