Newcastle alt. rock band A Festival, A Parade will release an expanded edition of their Company EP featuring new tracks Area Man and Running Man, compiled on a limited edition blue and white marble 12”.

Company was previously released in July last year as a digital-only EP. A culmination of both alternative punk rock sounds and more chilled out vibes consolidate the release, and the two additional tracks more than live up to the EP’s well-regarded reputation. Area Man is about “feeling claustrophobic and kind of swallowed up by your place of work”, the notion of living a double life is explored intricately through the track’s lyrical content and musicality; apparent in moments of pause, contrasting with heavier breakdowns.

Running Man, meanwhile, expresses the harmonious relationship between guitar and vocals through interesting tonal qualities. Starting with a prominent drum rhythm which continues throughout, the track is reminiscent of bands like Interpol and The Twilight Sad, who remain firm influences.
