New Single, New Tour and New Signing
COUNTERFEIT release new track, Addiction, alongside tour announcement and signing to Xtra Mile Recordings.
Well, things will surely get busy for the British five-piece in 2017 as they’ve just dropped some massive news.
First, they are a new addition to Xtra Mile Recordings family (Frank Turner, Against Me!). Founder Charlie Caplowe said:
We’re massively excited to have signed Counterfeit. They’ve made an amazing album and their live show is immense. 2017 looks set to be a huge year for the band.
Second, they’ve just unveiled new forceful single, Addiction, which was actually played live on the band’s latest tour and as a definite fan favourite it has now officially been released.
Produced by Thomas Mitchener (Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Dead!) and recorded at Broadfields Studio, it is a punchy in-your-face heavy rock track, which will surely make you addicted to a thing or two.
Frontman Jamie Campbell Bower says of the song:
It is my belief that we can all become addicted to something. Whether it be a substance, feeling, person, place… The list is endless but ultimately that obsession with whatever your chosen poison breaks you down and can leave you empty. ‘Addiction’ is in some ways about overpowering that need for any form of crutch and accepting things on the worlds terms rather than trying to control it on ones own. This song marks a new beginning for Counterfeit and is the first of much more to come.
We are also pleased to announce that Counterfeit have signed to Xtra Mile. We believe that this will be a good home for us and are in good company. Onwards and upwards and into 2017.
