Sad Boys Club have announced their new EP ‘I’m Not Afraid Of The Death (But I Am Afraid Of The Dying)’, due in January 2022 via Modern Sky.

The news comes alongside a new single ‘White Hart Lane’ which will be supported by a sold out headline show at The Old Blue Last tomorrow (27th October).

‘White Hart Lane’ is – apparently – an ode to being a Tottenham Hotspur supporter. Lead singer Jacob Wheldon explains: “When the seagulls follow the trailer it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. Football’s a big part of my life, a source of passion, love, and a sense of community, but it also reduces us to primal versions of ourselves, versions that shouldn’t be seen, and sensitivities that should. There’s a visceral thing there that felt worth exploring. I’m taking the narrative over from the blokes and the boot boys. It’s a sport for the saps and the sad, for the lonely secular optimist who needs something to believe in.”

The track follows on from last month’s single ‘Your Mind (Makes Mine Seem Fine)’. You can check it out, and their upcoming live dates, below.
