True to form, Welsh pop punk upstarts prove they can make anything punk with new EP 'Poor Unfortunate Souls' out NOW!
Now for something a bit different…
To coincide with the new The Little Mermaid theatrical release, Punk Rock Factory are reimagining 4 iconic songs from the beloved Disney film for their new EP, including ‘Part Of Your World‘. For this track, they teamed up with Alissa White-Gluz, the powerhouse vocalist from Swedish death metal band Arch Enemy. Speaking of the collab, White-Gluz said:
“Like most people my age, I grew up feeling that I was one day destined to become a mermaid thanks to one particular movie which remains one of my favourites to this day.
“Well, I do sing and I do have colourful hair, but only now, releasing ‘Part Of Your World’, are my mermaid life-goals complete!
Punk Rock Factory add:
“When we heard there was a new Little Mermaid film coming out, we knew we had to take a look at some of its hits, and put them together in a dedicated EP. After the success of our previous albums ‘A Whole New Wurst 1 & 2’ which were entirely Disney tracks, it had to be done!
We had the opportunity to potentially work with Alissa on our latest album ‘It’s Just A Stage We’re Going Through’, but unfortunately the timing didn’t work out. We stayed in touch and then floated the idea of ‘Part Of Your World’ to her… it turned out to be a favourite movie and song, and she was super excited to be involved.
This is a super fun EP, which also includes punked up versions of ‘Under The Sea‘, ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls‘ and ‘Kiss the Girl‘.
Go on…you know you’re gonna love it!
As well as their new EP release, the band are heading out on a headline tour in October and November. The band are known for their high energy shows so don’t miss out! Tour date info below!
