WhoHurtYou (Featuring All Time Low’s Jack Barakat) Have Dropped A New Single
Ahead of the release of their forthcoming Stages EP, WhoHurtYou have unveiled a brand-new single, Not The One.
The duo – completed by All Time Low guitarist Jack Barakat and singer/songwriter Kevin Fisher – have just dropped the third single from their debut EP, which is due out on November 1 via Parlophone.
Of the new tune, the band say: “Not The One is a song about rushing into intimacy with new people shortly after a break up. It’s about spreading yourself too thin by moving on sooner than you should, all while wondering if your ex is doing the same. It’s a reminder to be true to yourself and take the time you need to heal.”
Check out Not The One below.
The Stages EP will be followed up by WhoHurtYou’s first-ever live dates – their own headline show on November 26 in LA, and a support slot with The Maine on November 27 and 29.
We recently asked the pair what their live shows would be like, to which Jack laughed, “Your guess is probably as good as ours!
“I’m excited to do it,” he continued. “Kevin is a great singer, so I know everything’s gonna sound great. The jokes will be there, but they’ll just be a little more dark and fucked up. This has been a cool new experience for Kevin because he’s been a songwriter for years, writing for 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Republic, all these big bands. But he’s been the other side of it to me, where you get to go out and sing the songs and change people’s lives, and he’s had almost a back-seat view of that, so it’s been cool for him to be on the front line.”

“Am I nervous about being out front for the first time? Not at all,” Kevin added. “I’m sure once we have a show booked and we’re about to go onstage I’ll look at Jack and be like, ‘Um, I’m scared!’ But no, I feel really good about it. I’m used to just giving songs to other people, but when we did all these songs, I was like, ‘This stuff is so personal to both of us, I don’t even feel right giving it to anybody else, because it just feels like us.’”
Not all gigs go according to plan. Human error, equipment failure and a myriad of other catastrophes can scupper even the biggest bands’ best-laid plans…
