London punk/emo 4-piece The Burnt Tapes will release the debut LP “Never Better” on February 22, 2019 via Wiretap Records (US) and Lockjaw Records (UK/EU).

The band debuted a new song/video called "Yuzi". The band comments on the video;

“Yuzi is about putting the puzzle of yourself back together after the end of a relationship you thought defined you. That’s kinda the theme throughout our songs in many ways, and the video ties in a lot of those themes but mainly its about finding a place where you can finally find some peace.”

Members of The Burnt Tapes have known each other since they were teenagers, having grown up together in Athens, Greece before settling in London, and forming the band in 2014. Their gruff hook laden sound has drawn comparisons to bands like Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker and The Lawrence Arms.

In the last three years they have played almost 200 shows across the UK and Europe, supporting bands like Nothington, Red City Radio, Get Dead, Timeshares, GBH, Pkew Pkew Pkew, Penske File & The Bombpops.
