[T]hey’ve been counting down to it all week and today Counterfeit, the London based punk rock trio fronted by Jamie Campbell Bower, premier their Rankin directed video for “Come Get Some” on Hunger TV.
“I grew up quite a bit in the past twelve months and I love The Darling Buds and still hold what we did very dear, but I didn’t feel like I was representing myself in the most genuine way that I could'” Jamie said of his departure from previous band, The Darling Buds.
“Going through the changes that I did, I came to realise that I’m a bit of an angry young man and I needed to vent that and get it out in a way that was cathartic and real so we threw around the idea of changing the style of the old band and changing the message, and came to the conclusion that we just needed to start again at square one.”
“This is the most personal thing I have ever put out or shown anyone. Our entire record consists of songs written from the heart and our own experience. There are no punches pulled for us.”
Like what you see? Then put December 18th in the diary as the band will be performing their first show at Islington’s O2 Academy.
