Last seen performing at 2019's Aftershock Festival where they played alongside Tool, Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Chevelle, I Prevail, Gojira, Badflower, FIDLAR, and many more, NEW LANGUAGE has spent the past several months fine-tuning their always-evolving sound, as can be heard on the latest EP, which incorporates elements of synth and New Wave into the mix.
The follow-up to their recent singles "Play Dead" and “House of Cards” (the latter of which was the only independent track to maintain Top 20 placement on the FMQB Alt Specialty Charts for 2 consecutive weeks in 2019, and lodged itself at #1 on KROQ Locals Only for several weeks), 'EP1_2020.' signifies a bold new direction for NEW LANGUAGE.
Last year saw the band garnering enthusiastic support from the likes of Loudwire, Alternative Press, The Noise, New Noise, Triple J, Sirius/XM Octane and Spotify (which added their music to the weekly 'New Noise' 'Rock Hard', 'Totally Alt', 'Rise Up' and 'The Scene' playlists) resulting in over 1.7 million streams on Spotify, with an average of 35,000 monthly listeners. Their videos have been viewed over 100,000 times on Youtube.
Formed in 2016, NEW LANGUAGE's debut full-length 'Come Alive' was produced by Gone Is Gone/At the Drive-In drummer Tony Hajjar. The 'Everybody Screams' EP followed in 2017. Since then, the band has toured and played shows with the likes of Papa Roach, The Used, Gone Is Gone, Will Haven and has appeared at Vans Warped Tour and KROQ's Locals Only Fest.
