Last year’s ‘Joy, Departed’ LP saw Connecticut four-piece Sorority Noise quickly establish themselves as the go-to for the open-hearted and honest. With a new EP on the way, they’re only set to climb that ladder.
‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’, the aforementioned short player, is being led by ‘Either Way’, a stripped-back number that expands on Sorority Noise’s already fit-to-burst repertoire.
“I wrote this song in our van outside of Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA,” explains frontman Cam Boucher. “I had found out I lost another friend a few days previous and was having a difficult time thinking about how I had made positive strides in dealing with my mental health, but hadn’t been able to help friends around me that I didn’t know we’re suffering from the same thing.”
It’s a haunting, introspective ode to a lost kindred spirit - one that carries Sorority Noise’s emotional intelligence to the fore. Get the first play of it below, and pre-order ‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’ here.
The group hit the ground running tonight for their first run of UK dates - those are as follows:
22 Nottingham, Rock City Basement
23 Leeds, Key Club
24 Nottingham, Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar (w/ Old Gray)
25 London, Electric Ballroom (w/ Modern Baseball)
26 Manchester, Gorilla (w/ Modern Baseball)

The LP will feature stripped-back versions of tracks from ‘You’re Not As _____ As You Think’.
Where Sorority Noise really shine is through the songs that evolve to embody their every dynamic.
The Connecticut band’s third album ‘You’re Not As ___ As You Think’ might well prove their richly deserved breakthrough.
They’re also set to play at Slam Dunk Fest in May.
