Pretty Uglys have revealed the forthcoming release of their sophomore EP ‘Party Friends’, and dropped a new single, ‘Emergency Room’ to coincide with the announcement.
The track, released today (April 1), is described by the band in a press statement as “one of the heavier tracks off the EP.” They also note that it serves as the EP’s opener to “kick things off with a punch.”
“[It was] written about a night out which ended with Jax [Jaxon Alp, vocalist/guitarist] landing in hospital needing stitches in his face,” they said.
“[He] then head[ed] to Perth the next day to play a sold out show with Ruby Fields. It was our biggest show to date at the time.”

The EP announcement from the Perth indie outfit comes off the back of the release of its title track in January. According to a press release, the trio enlisted “good mate” Tristan Sturmer to mix the EP and George Georgiadis to master it. Find the tracklist for ‘Party Friends’ – due out Friday April 16 – below.
“[It] feels epic to get this release into the world,” the band said.
“[We’ve been] collectively putting together these tracks in a way that helps solidify our own sound direction from over the past 12 months at least, with both happy and deeper/heavier tracks all in the mix.”
Pretty Uglys also announced today they will embark on a tour of the west coast in May, with details of the four-date run available via the band’s Facebook.
