New Jersey’s Sucker Punch has released a brand new EP today entitled Better Pleasures. With lyrics examining relationships – with the self, with others, what happens when they come apart – and tones ranging from mosh-worthy bridges and gang vocals to airy, atmospheric soundscapes, Sucker Punch’s dynamic and focused songwriting is on display on all four tracks.
Guitarist Billy Butka spoke about the EP’s creation and its place in Sucker Punch’s catalog:
“Better Pleasures is our most ambitious record to date. We were inspired to take risks and try out new things to really bring out the energy and emotion in this group of songs. We tackle issues of hedonism and self-doubt while urging listeners to find more worthwhile and sustainable sources of happiness and a better sense of self-worth.”
Stream the new EP in full bellow and check out Sucker Punch’s record release show at the House of Independents in Asbury Park, NJ on November 4th!
