Today, Montreal-based emo-punk band Gulfer are announcing their upcoming self-titled record, to be co-released by Topshelf Records (USA) and Royal Mountain Records (Canada) on October 16, 2020. With the announcement, the band are sharing the first single from the record, “Forget (Friendly).”
Riding bikes, cleaning bars, fixing brains and booking shows are all part of Gulfer’s daily lives, as seen in the adorable and charming video. Vocalist/guitarist Joseph Therriault explains: “”Forget (Friendly)” is about how you deal with developing a crush on someone in the context of a monogamous partnership (especially if it’s reciprocated). There are so many things we can’t control. The song has no lesson – I’m just as clueless about this as when I wrote the lyrics.”
With their most refined sound to date, as well as their first Canadian label, Gulfer’s new full length effort is one not to be missed. “Forget (Friendly)” is out now, and can be listened to everywhere.
