The posterboys of the Cleveland pop-punk scene, Light Years, will release a three-song covers EP titled Trying to be… for free via Paper + Plastick Records on October 23.
The EP will feature acoustic covers of Tegan & Sara, Saves The Day and blink-182. It will be offered for free download in the Paper + Plastick Records webstore as a thank-you to the band’s fans, who have offered overwhelming positivity as the band continues to support its debut full-length album, I Won’t Hold This Against You. The LP was released earlier this year via P+P.
Currently, Light Years’ cover of Tegan & Sara’s “Back In Your Head” can be heard via Alternative Press and their cover of Saves The Day’s “All Star Me” is on PropertyOfZack.com. Their take on Blink-182’s “Every Time I Look For You” will be streamed next week, when the download is released.
The band’s upcoming tour dates — including a stint supporting Handguns and A Loss For Words — can be seen on their Facebook page
