Breakup Haircut has released new single ‘Out Of My Way (I’m Not Getting On The Nightbus)’ (today, 16 March) and announced their debut album ‘Punk Dancing for Self Defense’ will follow in July 2022.
FFO blink-182, Worriers, Mountain Goats, from the opening revved up snarly vocal, this highly infectious guitar-powered punk pop chant-along hits top speed in seconds, taking you on a white-knuckle joyride that scatters frenetic drums, spiky riffs and witty lyrics in its wake.

About the track guitarist and vocalist Ishani said, “I bill this as a song about hating parties, but I don’t actually hate parties. I just hate that I have to deal with the dichotomy of FOMO or being out past midnight and having to spend four hours or £60 (or both) getting home. I have held the belief for a while now that the best amount of people is four or less, so this song is in the spirit of that.”
Forming at First Timers Fest in 2019 this is the first new music since signing with ethical independent label Reckless Yes, and follows debut EP ‘What Do You Expect? I Got It Off The Internet!’ released on Hell Hath No Fury Records in 2019. With a sound defined by humorously relatable lyrics, boppin’ basslines, and making a legitimate, concerted effort not to use the same three punk drum beats over and over again the band is already pricking up ears and has landed live slots supporting Big Joanie and at Wales Goes Pop!, Bigfoot Fest, and Loud Women Fest.
Debut album ‘Punk Dancing For Self Defense’ will be released on limited CD and digital on 15 July 2022. A packed selection of modern punk-pop prime cuts the album keeps the band’s scrappy DIY spirit while refining their sound, and single ‘Out Of My Way (I’m Not Getting On The Nightbus’) is the perfect introduction.
