Despite only having 5 tracks, Layover returns after a 2 year hiatus with a brand new EP beckoning back to the golden era of emo pop punk. The bands’ first EP since they announced an extended break in 2016, “Your Laughter Never Leaves” has Layover playing with a renewed energy and a band that’s matured both sonically and personally.
“YLNL” is filled with equal parts of wit and grit addressing a wide range of topics such as mental health and loss, sensitively and sincerely. When asked about the new tracks, vocalist Luke Rainsford said, “We are bringing a sound that is predominantly based within the American market. Our honesty and intense live shows bring a refreshing atmosphere that we feel sets us apart, but ultimately we are just 4 close friends trying to share our music.”
Watch the official video for “Slumber” below.

Bitter sweet news today for fans of The Wanted as the band announces a new music video for “Glow In The Dark” and that the band will be taking a break after the Word Of Mouth tour(at least they told us they’re taking a break and are still going forward with the tour – Jonas…we’re looking at you).
The band wrote a personal note on their website today to their fans stating they will “take time to pursue personal endeavors.”
“Important Announcement 22 Jan
The Wanted are pleased to announce the release of their new video and single ‘Glow In The Dark’ taken from their November release ‘Word of Mouth’. They are very excited to perform ‘Glow In The Dark’ along with their smash singles ‘I Found You’, ‘Chasing The Sun’, and ‘Glad You Came’, amongst others for their fans on their upcoming Word of Mouth Tour.
