Newcastle, Australia natives, Trophy Eyes have announced their upcoming debut full-length, Mend, Move On, which will be released November 4th, 2014 via

 Hopeless Records. The album is also now available for physical and digital pre-order.



Today, Trophy Eyes are premiering a new single and music video for “In Return,” taken from Mend, Move On. Fans can watch the video here: The song is available for purchase now on iTunes:


Trophy Eyes’ new single, “In Return,” holds a special meaning for vocalist John Floreani. The singer states “‘In Return’ is about my mother and the events following her divorce when I was about 13 years old. We moved house and began our lives again – or so mum tried. Even though my mother had never let it show, I know now that it must have been a very lonely and hard time for her. Supporting three children through school and working three jobs and still making sure we never went without. When it finally came time for mum to love again, I was totally against it and made it very hard for her and her new love (they’re happily married now and have been for many years) to be together. Not long after that, mum received the news that she was suffering with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and we were told that she could be reduced to a wheelchair for the rest of her life – so the degenerative properties of her disease. I wrote ‘In Return’ to apologise to her. Not for her forgiveness, but to let her know that I remember and I am sorry.


Regarding the content of the record, Floreani shares, “Mend, Move On is made up of the stories and memories that I think defined my life so far and acted as lessons throughout my transition from adolescence to adulthood. Those significant moments and events range from nearly driving off a cliff in an old friend’s car to giving the girl of my dreams my sweet grandmother’s earrings for her 21st birthday. I’m fortunate to have lived my interesting little life – I wouldn’t change a thing.”


Mend, Move On will be released November 4th, 2014.
