Following a buzzy support tour with The Faim, Sydney bunch Yours Truly have signed to UNFD Records for a new EP that channels the optimistic, posi-vibes of their Aussie pals Tonight Alive via relatable songs about personal trauma and disillusionment.
Hey Mikaila, where did you guys meet, and how did you decide to all be in a band together?
We met over Facebook and mutual friends. I saw a video of Teddie playing the guitar, so I sent him a friend request, and it went from there! Lachie and Teddie knew each other previously, and we also found Brad on Facebook – the world is so small on the internet.
Did you grow up making music, or is it a relatively new thing for you?
Each of us had been playing in different bands or studying music growing up, so it was definitely something we knew we wanted to do from a young age.
Touring with The Faim sounds like fun, was it good?
The tour with The Faim was SO. MUCH. FUN. Not only are they an amazing band to watch but they are some of the loveliest guys we’ve ever had to privilege of touring with, not to mention our friends Redhook were also on the tour, so it was a huge friends fest!
Any behind-the-scenes gossip?
We took end-of-tour photos and edited Lachie’s face in one to look really strange. We sent it to everyone in the same folder as the normal photos to see if anyone would notice, haha!
You’re coming over to the UK for Download, right? Are you going to play any other shows while you’re here?
All shall be revealed soon! We’re looking forward to playing more shows over the UK and Europe while we’re there, it’s so far from home!
