Contents

Honeytalks brand new single “Super 8” drops on Friday, June 23rd.

“Super 8” will be a part of their EP ‘There’s Hope in Hopeless’, which is set to release on Friday, September 29th.

Punk/rock power pop band HONEYTALKS release the follow up to their debut EP ‘Over it’ which received a fantastic response across all streaming platforms in addition to support from BBC Introducing with their tracks ‘Parachute’ and ‘New Heights’ where Adam Walton stated “This takes me right back to the 90’s, what a band!” and Kerrang Radio where they placed runners up in ‘Kerrang Radio’s The Deal’ competition which lands the winning artist a slot on the main stage at Download Festival, and Music Networking 101 where Bowling for Soup artist Jaret Reddick stated “Guys that’s a fantastic track! The caliber of the band; like
Jesus Christ we should go on tour, people would lose their God damn minds!”

In May of 2022 HONEYTALKS were approached by ‘multi award winning’ producer Phil Gornell of Steele City Studios in Sheffield to record a 2nd 5 track EP. Phil has produced tracks for numerous artists over the years and has gained a substantial reputation throughout his workings with All Time Low, You Me At Six, Bring Me The Horizon, Deaf Havana, Stand Atlantic and Busted to name a few.

Mental health is a subject close to HONEYTALKS hearts, and is commonly heard throughout their lyrics. They feel empowered to broadcast their own thoughts and feelings; as well as many others familiar struggles, in hopes that their songs may just help those in a similar situation of need.

The bands upcoming release ‘Super Eight,’ depicts a snap shot of the mundane aspects and routines of everyday life, which brings about a lack of fulfilment and momentum. We all strive for more in life and ‘Super Eight’ is about breaking out of that comfort zone and grasping what it is you desire!

‘Super Eight,’ fittingly named after the film reel, is about breaking the mold with pure drive, and determination. It is the second song to be released by HONEYTALKS this year.

The most pertinent line in the song, ‘I’m paralyzed in a perfect life’ describes how life isn’t always as it seems. Although we may value what we have, and feel privileged to have or be where we are, sometimes we still need help and support…and that’s ok.

The chorus then follows on with ‘Watch me fade away, film it on a Super 8’ which describes how life isn’t always as it appears, especially when analyzed through a snap shot in time; it’s often a coping mechanism to mask how we truly feel.

“We want people to know that life runs much deeper, and it’s something we all need to remember. Nothing is as it seems.”

Self-written at ROC2 Studios Wrexham, which also plays host to rehearsals, photo and video shoots; ‘FAMILIAR TIMES’ is the first single release of 2023 and will be followed by an EP entitled, “There’s Hope in Hopeless,” to be released in the early fall on Affiant Records.

HONEYTALKS have many shows scheduled in their itinerary this year, in addition to numerous summer festival appearances to be announced.

​HONEYTALKS is poised to make a lasting impact on the punk rock scene with their upcoming EP. Their unique fusion of modern pop punk and emo-inspired elements, coupled with their engaging live performances, promises to captivate fans old and new. With support from influential industry figures and a dedicated fan base, HONEYTALKS is ready to take their music to new heights and solidify their position as an exciting force in punk rock.
