Fresh pop-punk blood is coming from Australian newcomers Yours Truly, who have had an eventful year thus far. Their catchy single High Hopes has been on my playlist for over a year and this year's Download Festival finally brought the group to Europe - followed by a tour with Sum41, their own headline tour in Australia and a full U.S. tour. Not bad for a bunch of kids from the other side of the world!
My interview with singer Mikaila and guitarist Teddie took place hours after the band had taken the stage at a (very rainy) Download Festival, and right before they played an intimate show at The Underworld in support of pop-punk giants State Champs. We talk about their most recent EP Afterglow, as well as the importance of taking care of yourself as a touring musician with health issues, and I'm introduced to Party Dave... 🕺
