After Touch Wants to “Use Me” to Tell Others about Friday’s EP Release “You Wish This Was About You”

After Touch (Formerly Easy Life) has dropped their new single “Use Me“. The track is off of the band’s forthcoming EP, You Wish This Was About You, set for release on September 7th via UNFD. Fans can watch the music video now, here:
After Touch’s first single, “Use Me”, which premiered yesterday on triple J’s Good Nights, is a tragic yet triumphant look at the fallout after a bad relationship. Frontman Max Pasalic states, “‘Use Me’ is about gravitating toward painful, toxic relationships. I had to realise that I was seeking them out in some sort of masochistic sense – and the only way to overcome this was to accept it. Instead of feeling sorry for myself I started to revel in it, and I used these experiences to become someone new, someone stronger.”
Alongside the name change comes a sonic shift for the Australian melodic hardcore band. You Wish This Was About You brings the aggression and energy Easy Life built their name on and mixes it with modern take on heavy emotional music with electronic flourishes and an exploration of string arrangements. The band recreates themselves with a sense of atmosphere and darkness. Listening back to what they had crafted it made them realize they were an entirely different band to Easy Life, inspiring the name change to After Touch.
You Wish This Was About You features five brand new empowering tracks that focus on standing strong and believing in yourself after a toxic relationship. The forthcoming release, which deals with the perils of placing your entire self-worth in another person when ultimately only you can make yourself happy, follows the band’s previous EP, There Can’t Be This Much Water In The Sky(2017).
After Touch formed in 2014 with the goal of escaping their small town and taking the unknown road. Fueled by ambition, in their short time together, After Touch found a home on triple j Unearthed Radio with an “Artist Spotlight” and a rotation add of their previous single “I’m Fading Away”. The band has previously shared the stage with Trophy Eyes, Northlane, The Story So Far, and Dream on Dreamer.
After Touch is Max Pasalic (vocals), Kurt Haywood (bass), Jack Rankin (guitar), Jesse Mate-Gallo (guitar), Jordan Pranic(drums).
