WSTR have pencilled in a release date for their debut album, ‘Red, Green or Inbetween’ – it’s set to land on 20th January via No Sleep Records.
“This album is mainly a breakup album however it’s not a ‘fuck you’ album it’s more a ‘mad at myself’ album,” explains vocalist Sammy Clifford.
“The title, ‘Red, Green Or Inbetween’ is based on being stuck in limbo or in the ‘in-between’. Amber is also the name of a significant friend of mine who most of the songs are about, so it’s a pretty sad boy record.
“It’s all about kicking myself for not stepping up when I had the chance and coasting through life making bad decisions. Compared to the EP, it’s still very honest but just bigger, better and longer.
“The artwork is a voodoo doll which is meant to represent me, as I sometimes feel like someone is out to get me with all the bad luck I have.
“Putting out an album is a big scary step, but it’s been a long time coming and we’re ready to see what the world has to say and hopefully see some more of it too.”
The track listing is as follows:
4. Lonely Smiles
5. Nail The Casket
6. Eastbound & Down
7. Kings Cup
8. The Last Ride
