Hailing from Modena in Italy, Pop-Punk Quartet Why Everyone Left have released their feel-good, fun new single “Whiskey & Coke”.

Listen to the new single “Whiskey & Coke” below.

Vocalist Enzo explains: “The record was done, but I felt it was missing the fun element, so I wrote this song! When the band first gave it a listen, they loved it, so we ended up replacing another track from the EP and putting "Whiskey & Coke" in it’s place. It’s just about getting drunk and fallin' in love at parties. In the last few years, it seems talking about having fun has become really non-trendy in Pop Punk; I miss that. Haven't we all grown up with all that American Pie stuff?”...

“Whiskey & Coke” is the second track to be released from the band’s forthcoming EP, with lead track “Bouch” available to view here.

“This is not a Test”, was set for self-release on 2nd November, however, the band has now revealed that Penultimate Records are on board, with pre-orders available here.

Completed by Luca on Drums, Luca Bi on Bass and Thomas on Guitar, the quartet formed Why Everyone Left in 2013, as Enzo says: “from the ashes of other bands, everyone in our local scene was quitting music at the time, except for us”. Taking their name from a Real Friends track, despite cementing themselves as an upbeat pop-punk act, they have had serious intentions from the beginning, saying: “I think most of the small bands in our scene don't take this as a real job. That changes everything. We put all the time we have in this, every day, if you'll treat it as a hobby it won't be more than a hobby”. This approach has seen the Italian crew already sharing stages with the likes of Four Year Strong, Waterparks, As It Is and Seaway; touring the UK and mainland Europe, and releasing two prior EPs.

For “This is not a Test”, the band was determined to be very hands-on, with Enzo producing and recording all bar the drums himself and Seb Barlow (Neck Deep, WSTR, As It Is) at Celestial Productions handling mixing duties. The resultant 5-tracker sees the band declaring: “I think we finally found our way with this EP. The previous ones were too heterogeneous, this time there's a connection from start to finish”. Taking influence from the likes of State Champs, Four Year Strong and A Day To Remember, “This is not a Test” sounds like long summers spent drinking with your friends, delivering big, bouncy riffs and infectious vocal hooks.

The band reveals their hopes for listeners of the release: “We want them to have a good time with the fun songs like "Whiskey & Coke", and wish they'll feel better and less lonely during their hard times, with the sadder songs like "Dead Inside"”.

Why Everyone Left will release “This is not a Test”, via Penultimate Records on November 2nd, 2018.
