Boston-based pop punk band Bleacher Days have released a stream of their new EP I Only Saw True Purpose. The six songs contained on the EP were produced by Chris Piquette, who has worked with Trophy Wives and Lions Lions. This is a collection of angst-ridden and introspective tracks that are poppy but still punky and rock enough to get the mosh pit moving.
"The songs are a blunt chronicle of the back end of a seven year relationship I was in and start to finish, each song is just frustration," commented vocalist Wren Mohammed. "The period when we were writing the songs was for sure a rough time, but it was a complete catharsis honestly. Our producer Chris had a much larger part in the writing process, and the songs are all SO much better for it. He's a really talented guy, and we learned a lot when we recorded with him, so we're lucky to have him on our team. Recording the songs definitely helped us all cope with what we were individually going through at the time as well. So even though frustration is what drove its conception, in the end we all came out much healthier and wiser people, and we hope each listener feels that with each listen."
