Only The Strong Join Pop Punk Resurgence With Dynamic Debut EP

Only The Strong

Calgary punks release new EP alongside video for new single Hollow Eyes

Rising Canadian pop-punk/easy-core outfit Only The Strong has released their debut EP Fractured, breaking out at over 70,000 streams in its first three days. Fractured is out now via Art & War Music Group.

The trio has just dropped their latest video for the EP’s fifth single Hollow Eyes. The clip shows the band performing in an amateur ‘talent show,’ appearing as if they have no clue what they are doing. At the midway point, the spell is broken as the band open up, breaking into a fittingly energetic performance. Addictive hooks and melodically intense vocals bring the track together, seducing you in, holding you firmly there right through.

The band says, “Hollow Eyes is the last song on our debut EP Fractured, finalising the overall theme of the EP with an attempt to reclaim peace and rebuild after trauma.”

Only The Strong dove into the regional scene in 2018, quickly building a solid fanbase in the Calgary area. The band soon gained a global fanbase engaging with fans through their online presence. Releasing their first track from the EP in 2020, Sinking Ships earned the group early praise within the resurging pop-punk arena.

The band have continued to grow both musically and lyrically, with their first release of 2021 Picking Up The Pieces establishing the band’s easy-core roots laced with emo influences.

Full of dynamic hooks, lively melodies injected with an easy-core aggression throughout, Only the Strong are yet another brilliant Canadian outfit exploding onto the scene. Pop-punk has reawakened with a new intensity relevant for the next generation of fans.

Hollow Eyes is out now on all streaming services.
