Ex-Lovvers frontman Shaun Hencher releases 4-song EP for his new band Virals


On May 7th (digital)/May 21st (physical), ex-Lovvers frontman Shaun Hencher will release an EP for his new project called Virals.

The band have teamed up with acclaimed London-based label, Tough Love (Weird Dreams, Girls Names, Male Bonding) to release the 4-song outing entitled, Coming Up With The Sun.

Virals first release arrived in February 2012, a two-track 7" on Sexbeat (Fresh & Onlys, White Fence).

In April, the infectious power pop title track, "Coming Up With The Sun" was tipped as a 'New Band of the Day' by the Guardian and spun by both Huw Stephens at Radio 1 and John Kennedy at XFM. "Gloria" is a three-minute gem bedded in the middle of the record that shines through with an insanely hooky vocal and charged guitar riffs, taking cues from the sunny California coast yet retaining a suitably English feel.

Coming Up With The Sun, out via Tough Love (May 7th - digital, May 21 - physical) will be available on limited edition 12" red vinyl and digital download.

Coming Up With The Sun Track Listing:

01. Coming Up With The Sun
02. Shake Up
03. Gloria
04. Dig The Moon

Virals are set to play their first ever live shows this month with an EP launch at the Shacklewell Arms and appearances at Camden Crawl and The Great Escape.
