London garage punks Out of Love have released a new single titled ‘No Fakes Allowed’.
It sees the quintet thrash out a scrappy-but-explosive track that takes direct aim at imposter syndrome.
“This track is about imposter syndrome, not fitting in and believing all the noise your head throws at you. I think we all feel at some point in our lives suffer some form of imposter syndrome,” says vocalist Jack Rogers. “I started getting it terribly when we started touring. I constantly felt like we didn’t deserve certain opportunities, that we weren’t welcome in certain clicks and to be honest 99.9% was made up by myself. No fakes allowed is for the outsiders!”
The track, along with recent single, ‘Unplug My Head’, will appear on the band’s upcoming ‘Welcome to the Luv’ EP, due August 11th via Venn Records (Europe) and Secret Friends Music Group (ROW).
Out of Love’s Jack Rogers Lends Vocals for Arnold Schwarzenegger Netflix Series, FUBAR
The release of ‘No Fakes Allowed’ comes off the back of a unique opportunity for vocalist Jack Rogers, where he was asked to lend his snarling vocal talents to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new Netflix series -‘FUBAR’.
“About this time last year, I got a text from Lags (Gallows/Venn Records) asking me if I’d be interested in helping Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire) out in singing over a track he has recorded for TV,” Rogers explains. “I was obviously curious as I’d never done anything like this before so I spoke to Wade about the brief, and he informed me it would be a ‘punk’ version of the children’s nursery rhyme ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ to go cover a shoot out scene on a new Arnold Schwarzenegger series. I wasn’t gonna turn this down, shit sounded nuts! So we went full Brit punk and I tried to dig into my charming southern accent as much as I could. I submitted my take, Wade approved and we waited for it to get signed off on by the production team. All was good and it’s out now on Netflix. Bit of a random one but a great experience nonetheless!”
The first series of ‘FUBAR’ is available now on Netflix.
