LYRICS: I quit. I’m losing grip. I don’t see how you don’t see that this is the end for you and me We’re both so broken that we can’t help put each other together I can’t catch you if i’m jumping as well So i’ll go first, what could be worse? Don’t ask why i’m leaving, or try to reverse I’ll go first Don’t act like this wasn’t rehearsed Time and tide won’t wait for you, and I don’t think that I will either We’ve grown apart, and we weren’t that close from the start I can’t say i’ll miss you That’s it. I’m done with this How can you expect to move forward when you’re smiling and walking away? I won’t beg you to stay, to be honest I’m breathing a sign of relief and I’m counting the days So i’ll go first Don’t act so surprised, and don’t act so hurt So i’ll go first I know that you would have done worse

EAT DEFEAT Release New Video For 'Can't Say I'll Miss You'


Taken From The New Album 'I Think We'll Be OK'
Released August 3rd Via Bearded Punk Records


UK Tour Dates Start Next Week

Ahead of the release of their new album, I Think We'll Be OK, set for release on 3rd August 2018 via Bearded Punk Records, Leeds punks Eat Defeat have shared the new video/single for 'Can't Say I'll Miss You'.

Having become renowned for their upbeat deep-and-meaningful brand of melodic punk rock, 'Can't Say I'll Miss You' is another fine addition to the Eat Defeat catalogue. 

"It's less about a bad breakup and more about an inevitable breakup, when you get to a point in a relationship where you realise neither of you aregetting anything out of it and you're just bringing each other down,"comments vocalist Andrew Summers.

"It becomes a drain and there's this obvious realisation that one of you is going to have to be the one to end it, and I guess in this scenario I was the one who ended it. It was a pretty cathartic song to write really."

The single also comes ahead of the band setting off on an extensive UK tour through late July and early August, kicking off on Tuesday evening.

Commenting on the dates, Summers continues: "We're hitting some of our favourite places and playing with some of our favourite UK bands likeHavelocke, Arms & Hearts and Dynamite Dynamite. It's been so long since we've done a solid UK run, and we really want to do everything we can to make the shows special."

Two years in the making, I Think We'll Be Ok details the highs and lows of a life lived on your own terms; the freedom that comes with the realisation that you are in control of your own destiny mirrored with the existential dread which that realisation entails. It's about finding the positives amongst the negative and reassuring yourself that life gets better. It's about light and dark, night and day and coping with relationships divided by timezones. It's about accepting that it's alright to not be alright.

Recorded during the spring of 2018 at The Nave studios in Leeds with producer Andy Hawkins, 'I Think We'll Be Ok' was a concerted effort to try and retain the hooks and the energy of the previous offering whilst bringing in new ideas and production techniques to push the bands sound forward. As a result, the album is more evenly paced than it's predecessor but densely layered, bringing in keyboards and synth sounds to make for a more varied and considered collection of songs.

I Think We'll Be OK will be released on vinyl, CD and digital download through Bearded Punk Records on 03 August 2018. Pre-order:
