Raise Hell, the forthcoming new album from London punk band Fresh, resolves with our protagonist breaking free of a toxic relationship, joyously riding into the sunset singing doo-wops. It’s the first time on the album that the inner conflict settles, and contentment takes precedence. The band has shared the album's closing track "Why Do I" as a single today, with their new full-length set to hit virtual shelves on 1st July viaGet Better Records andSpecialist Subject

“Sadness and self-doubt are acknowledged and present on ‘Why Do I,’ but they don’t hold power over you anymore. There’s power in starting from scratch,” says lead singer and principal songwriterKathryn Woods. She expands; "Think Nicole Kidman signing divorce papers in 2001-vibes. There’s a real catharsis and joyous presence to this song, upbeat do-woop vocals, guitar riffs with a touch of delay and soaring lead vocals make it a great note to end the record on."

Fresh has been an unwavering fixture within the UK punk scene since their first record in 2017. A joy to behold live, Woods honed her craft not only fronting Fresh but as a member of several heralded indie and punk bands, including cheerbleederz andME REX alongside Fresh bandmateMyles McCabe
 
Their new album radiates with their signature mischievous British charm and flourishes of brilliant pop punk flair – though underestimate Fresh at your peril.Raise Hell dares to dive deeper than most, delivering Woods’ darker moments and contemplative thought processes through the sharply focussed lens of upbeat indie punk.
