Electrifying rock band Fools For Rowan is back to hit fans with a second EP, Who Killed Amanda Day? debuting on iTunes on July 3rd and accompanied by a video for the lead single “Killed a Man Today.” The group has been touring nationwide while performing hits from their first release, Twisted. Tied Up. Tangled. and growing their loyal fan base. With an unquestionable fierce stage presence and musicality nothing short of top-notch, Fools For Rowan is vying to knock fans’ socks off with their most honest project to date.
Based in Nashville, Fools For Rowan is fronted by vocal powerhouse Erin Mullins with Jordan Cullen on drums, Andrew “Gib” Williams on bass, Ryan Nanney on rhythm guitar and Rachel Brandsness on lead guitar. Having played together for over three years, the fivesome’s high-caliber live performances have landed them gigs with industry heavy-hitters Evanescence, Halestorm, Trapt and Sick Puppies, among others. The band’s first single “Burnt Around the Edges” received acclaim from college radio in the US and Canada, while the follow-up single “Dead” received spins on Top 40, college and modern rock radio and the video was featured on Fuse TV’s On-Demand. On the heels of a Kickstarter campaign where the band’s fans pledged to donate money towards the completion of Who Killed Amanda Day?, Fools For Rowan is ready to premiere the baby that fans personally helped conceive. “I think it’s just another cool way to get the fans even more involved in the music!” said Erin of the campaign.
Kicking down the doors of adversity, FFR has come back with a six-song compilation packed with authentic lyrics, powerful vocals and high-strung beats that stay true to rock genres of the past and present. Who Killed Amanda Day?, a clever play on the title of the lead single, was produced by hit-makers and co-writers Shaye Smith (Jewel, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney) and Ken Harrell (Stacie Orrico, Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers) and mixed by Beau Hill (Grammy winner – Ratt, Winger) and Rory Rositas. “Killed A Man Today,” a passionate story about breaking a lover’s heart and figuratively “killing” them, features enticing guitar riffs and infectious drums that dominate the track. According to Erin, the EP is “a great blend of soft rock, pop rock, hard rock with real lyrics… it’s just fun, emotional, and real.”
Resembling an epic drama flick, the video for “Killed a Man Today” shows a young woman breaking up with her man via a hand-written note and ironically dies shortly after in a car crash. Scroll down and watch below. With such a compelling track list and captivating video, “Fools For Fools” will be racing to the stands for another dose.
