Northern Faces are teaming up with AP to bring you a brand new single, “Alone And Forgotten.” The song is taken from the band’s debut self-titled album, which comes out April 21 on Equal Vision Records. (Pre-order it now.) Check it out below, and let us know your thoughts.

The band have also announced a new headlining tour this summer with support from Let It Happen. (See the full list of dates below.)

Vocalist/guitarist Bryan Shortell says, “'Alone and Forgotten” was the first song written for the record. In a way, it was the song that began shaping how the whole record would be written and how it would sound. At the end of the day it's a pretty straightforward rock song, and it served as sort of a ‘middle ground’ for us to work around when we started working on putting together the rest of the record. We knew we wanted big guitars, loud crashing drums, guitar solos, and lyrics that would connect with a crowd of 10 or 10,000. The song deals with the struggles we all go through when you zoom out and look at the big picture. Everyone deals with feelings of loneliness, and anxiety about life and how your own life will be remembered. I think this song does a good job capturing those feelings.”
