We’ve come to a typically quiet time in the music calendar with festival season 2018 at an end and a string of incredible winter tours ahead but Farnham’s Homebound seized the opportunity and made August entirely their own.

The quartet released their second EP More To Me Than Misery on August 17th via Rude Records and quickly took their new record on tour around the UK hitting up Southampton’s The Joiners (aka Britain’s best small venue) at the end of the month.

As the EPs artwork would suggest, Homebound have taken pop-punk deeper than those who have gone before, facing reality and humanity with an unrelenting determination.

More To Me Than Misery draws on the many pitfalls when searching for happiness in love and life” says vocalist Charlie Boughton. “Last year was possibly the best and worst of my life for the very same reasons and you begin to fear the very things that once made you who you are.”

That level of sincerity and focus on honesty transpires through to Homebound’s live performance. A no thrills display of earnestness playing More To Me Than Misery in its entirety as well as older offerings from a discography four years in the making.

The record is a strong offering and this tour has surely placed Homebound on the radar of bands with support slots on their hands. In any event, it looks like there’s a lot to be excited about the Farnham pop-punkers.
