TUNE False Advertising - Give It Your Worst
Give It Your Worst is released on 7" medicinal green vinyl through Too Pure Singles Club on 10th June 2016.
In September 2015, Manchester trio False Advertising released their eponymous debut album. The band’s self-produced grunge infused noise-pop garnered much word-of-mouth acclaim: Total Guitar hailed them ‘Guitarists to Watch in 2016’, whist the long-player was an ‘Album of the Year’ in Manchester Evening News, The Skinny and Shoplifters Union, with plays on Amazing Radio for album tracks and the video for single Dozer featuring on The Guardian.
After self-releasing their album not long after playing their first gig, the band quickly drew on their live experiences, returning to the studio in December 2015 with a hunger to record a new set of songs to strengthen their live set. Playing off the raw, sweaty live reputation that they were quickly forming after playing with the likes of Menace Beach, Young Knives and Bob Mould. And after appearing at festivals (Dot to Dot, Sound City) across the UK.
Returning in 2016 with the well-received fuzzed-up ‘Brainless’ EP in hand (Released April 22nd), and with a UK-wide PRS backed tour running between late April and May 2016. False Advertising announce the release the limited edition  7” Single ‘Give It Your Worst’ on Too Pure Singles Club this June. Featuring the as-yet unheard B-Side and future new-grunge-anthem ‘Scars’ on medicinal-green vinyl.
Recorded by Chris Warr in fellow band member Jen Hingley’s dad’s garage in Oxfordshire and produced by the band themselves. Give It Your Worst is fuzz-laden and gritty, shedding light on a tumultuous time that the band experienced last year. Both sides of the release showcase the band’s knack for instrument-swapping, with ‘Give It Your Worst’ featuring Chris on guitar up front, and ‘Scars’ seeing them switch with Jen coming forward from behind the drum-kit and taking the lead. Backed up and unified by Josh Sellers’ characterful bass parts all the way through.
“Sadly, just before writing the Brainless EP my family went through something very unfortunate” mentions Jen, “Which ended up turning mine and the band's world upside down for a few months. Give it Your Worst was written from out of that fraught place, but with a large dose of added sarcasm - I suppose that’s our way of dealing with stress”.
With artwork by band-member Jen Hingley, a graphic designer by day (who has worked with the likes of Royal Blood, The Charlatans and Franz Ferdinand). The release showcases the full extent of the band’s DIY-chops. Orchestrated by Too Pure Singles club and mastered by Sean Magee at Abbey Road.
