Love Like Fiction have just gone pop with their incredible cover of a Harry Styles Watermelon Sugar. Produced by Bob Hoag (The Ataris, The Maine, The Format, Gin Blossoms) at Flying Blanket Recording, this cover is the follow up to the band’s single “Misery Maintenance” released earlier this year. The cover will be available tomorrow November 6th.
Love Like Fiction recently did a livestream performance at the Craig Ranch Amphitheater in Las Vegas for the i-Voted Festival, the largest single night digital concert in history, alongside artists such as Taking Back Sunday, 3OH!3, ANBERLIN, Young the Giant, and hundreds of others.
The band selected covering “Watermelon Sugar” as “a heartfelt letter penned to all who have struggled this year. We really believe that it is extremely important that we all do our best to help keep people’s spirits up in such difficult times.
Leading up to their anticipated EP ‘New Nostalgia’ releasing mid-2021, Love Like Fiction will be doing a special in-studio recording session live-streamed on The Recording Artist (Amazon Prime) on November 11th as well as live-streaming at Last Exit Live on November 20th for KWSS 93.9 FM 15 Year Anniversary Show.
Based in Phoenix, AZ, Alt Pop-Punk band Love Like Fiction is the brainchild of Tara Goltz (Drums) and Marin Bridges (Guitar) who brought the band together in July of 2018 by recruiting Nick Barker (Lead Vocals), Frankie Stapley (Guitar and Vocals), and Paul Ritchie (Bass). Drawing inspiration from bands like Panic! At the Disco, New Found Glory and Mayday Parade, Love Like Fiction’s sound is upbeat and poppy with a melancholic undertone.
The band has also racked up an impressive list of notable support slots, in a short amount of time, sharing the stage with the likes of Sum 41, Bayside, IDKHOW & SWMRS. Support from Spotify’s Crash Course and New Punk Tracks playlist has further bolstered the quintet’s exposure within the alternative scene.
