Whenyoung announce new EP ‘Given Up’

They’ve also shared the EP’s title track.

Following on from their recent single ‘Heaven On Earth’ and their cover of The Cranberries ‘Dreams’, Whenyoung have announced the release of a new EP, called ‘Given Up’, as well as releasing the title-track from the record.

Speaking about the track, the band said: “‘Given Up’ was written after a series of late nights and self-inflicted misdirection. The central message is to take your life by the reins and create your own future.”

The full EP is due out on the 9th November and you can listen to the track below.
