Singapore emo band Xingfoo&Roy release new EP
Xingfoo&Roy will be celebrating the release of the 6-track EP ‘Late to The Party’ with a show at Singapore’s independant contemporary arts centre, The Substation on the 7th of July 2018. Local acts, Forests, Two Seas, and Terrible People will also be performing in support of this release show.
‘Late to the party’, which is the third musical release by the emo trio, marks a maturing in the band’s sound, through its instrumentation, lyrics, and production quality. Moreover, themes surrounding emo music such as nostalgia and strained relationships are still deeply embedded in the writing of the EP, and the band is proud to identify this work as an emo album.
Targeting the small, yet burgeoning emo scene – not just among Singapore’s gig goers, but in the region as well – Xingfoo&Roy aims to leverage this release show as a platform to inspire and facilitate the further penetration of Singapore’s emo music in the region. Vocalist and guitarist of the band, Daniel Chan said, “We want more independant Singaporean bands to tour around the region, and this release show, hopefully, will serve as another step in promoting Singaporean emo music”.
Tickets for the show will go for a presale price of S$12 on peatix, and the remainder will be priced at S$14 at the door. Doors will open at 6PM, and the event is projected to end at 11PM. The event is LGBTQ friendly and appropriate and open to all ages. However, loud rock music will be performed with stage lighting, therefore young children and those with photosensitive epilepsy are not encouraged to come.
