Front Porch Step - “A Lovely Mess” song premiere and EP announcement

October 10 2014, 12:11 PM EDT By Matt Crane


Front Porch Step, the acoustic solo project of Jake Mcelfresh, will release a new EP, Whole Again, on December 2 via Pure Noise Records. The four-track effort was produced by Alan Day of Four Year Strong. Pre-orders are on sale now.

For now, Mcelfresh is teaming up with AP to bring you the premiere of a new song, “A Lovely Mess.” Stream the track below, and let us know your thoughts.

“I am more excited about this than I have been for most things in my life,” says Mcelfresh. “This is a treat for my existing fans. The people who have been listening to my stuff for years and need something else in their FPS playlist. I am honored and privileged to be able to work with Alan Day, Ace Enders, and Adam Rourke. I definitely experimented with this EP and I truly love, and believe in the outcome. Having Ace and Alan sing, and play on my songs is just such a ridiculous thought, but it's real, and that's mind blowing to me. I hope people enjoy this EP half as much as I enjoyed making it. "

Whole Again:
1. A Lovely Mess
2. Heaven Sent
3. I’ll Be Home for Christmas
4. Whole Again

Mcelfresh is currently on the road with State Champs and Handguns for the Pure Noise Records Tour. After that, you can catch him on the road with the Madden Brothers in November.
