There are only three more days until the release of The Velvet Face EP by HalfNoise via Congrats Records. Only six months after the release of the album “Sudden Feeling”, the EP is described by Zac to show another side of Halfnoise.
“I really gave it everything on this EP. I really just looked at myself in the mirror, and I felt like I saw the lighthearted side of myself and I also saw the pain and the sadness that I’ve been though, through breakups. I guess in a weird way it’s kind of a self portrait” – Zac Farro on “The Velvet Face Ep”.
The tracklist and album artwork for the five song EP can be found below.
1. Scooby’s In The Back
2. French Class
3. As U Wave (ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore)
