Crown The King release title track from debut EP ‘Groundhog Day’

Get the feeling that you’re repeating the same day over and over again? Maybe it’s time to do something about it says Irish pop-punk band Crown The King.

Ireland’s Crown The King has released the title track from their upcoming debut EP ‘Groundhog Day’ (out 2nd February), and the accompanying music video sees the band stuck in their very own Groundhog Day.

“The track is really about feeling stuck. I think everyone has had that feeling at some point where you think there’s no viable way forward, and you don’t want to take a step backwards. There’s always an expectation of hitting certain arbitrary life goals, sometimes from others, sometimes self-imposed. Still, it can be quite debilitating, and I really wanted to capture the frustration in that.” explains guitarist Seán.

“Over the past year or so, a lot of people have gotten into routines of doing the same thing over and over again, which I guess some people do enjoy, but it’s not for me, so I really relate to this track.” adds vocalist Dan Gannon.

‘Groundhog Day’ is the third to be released from the upcoming EP, following the release of ‘Melissa’ and ‘Running On Empty’. The band also released a bonus track over the festive season; a pop-punk cover of fellow Irish boyband Westlife’s ‘When You’re Looking Like That’.  

Crown The King play their first-ever live show on 11th February at Whelan’s in Dublin with support from Light Grey. Be sure you get down to Whelan’s and check ’em out!
