Following on from the release of their first two singles late last year, 86TVs have now announced plans to release their debut EP ‘You Don’t Have To Be Yourself Right Now’.

Due out on 26th January, the four-track EP will feature their previously-released tracks ‘Worn Out Buildings’ and ‘Higher Love’, alongside two new offerings, ‘Spinning World’ and ‘Dreaming’. The EP was recorded in both their own Olympic Studios and The Bunker at 13, which is owned by the EP’s producer Stephen Street.

“‘You Don’t Have To Be Yourself Right Now’ is our first ever group of songs to sit together in a collection,” the band have said about the release. “It feels good. It’s a fitting place to start - three of us brothers writing lyrics from different perspectives, lots of group singing, guitars, drums, pianos and about six or seven years of our lives all wrapped up in there!”

Made up of The Maccabees’ Felix and Hugo White, alongside their younger brother Will and drummer Jamie Morrison, 86TVs are also set to embark upon a headline tour later this month, which is now mostly sold out; check out their full tour schedule below.
