Layby announce their second EP Life's Great Illusions
Up-and-coming Nottingham based pop punk band LAYBY have announced their second EP will be titled 'LIFE'S GREAT ILLUSIONS' and will be released on April 20th 2015.
The EP marks a crossroad for the five-piece. Having recorded with producer/engineer James Hill at Sheffield's Steel City Studios (Roam, While She Sleeps, Me Vs Hero) in the Autumn and Winter of 2014, vocalist Aaron John Bowes decided to leave the band at the turn of the year. Nevertheless the band have decided to solider on and release 'LIFE'S GREAT ILLUSIONS' with Miles Kent coming in as the band's new vocalist.
'LIFE'S GREAT ILLUSIONS' sees LAYBY build on the momentum of last years 'Bombsite' EP and offers five slices of edgy pop punk that sees the quintet become more focused, finding their feet along the way. In a burgeoning UK pop punk scene, LAYBY are throwing their hat into the ring with 'LIFE'S GREAT ILLUSIONS'.

5. Losing Faith
"We fell in love with these songs instantly as we wrote and recorded them, and it'd be damn selfish if we didn't share them with you too. Our lineup may have pressed F5, but our desire to craft great music as a band is only getting stronger, so here's 'Life's Great Illusions'."
The EP will be available digitally through Bandcamp and iTunes, whilst physical copies are available to pre-order through Big Cartel.
To mark the EP announcement, the quintet premiered the video for lead single, 'Chronic' over at Dead Press.
