After a nearly 8 year break, Skyway have delighted fans with the release of a new single and an announcement that their new EP will be released on Friday, November 20th. 

The EP, titled Hope Floats, Love Sinks, will be the fourth record from Skyway, which means we should probably listen to their first EP and two albums on repeat until Friday, November 20th, so we can get back up to speed with the band before their new release.

To get fans back in the groove of things, Skyway released the first single from Hope Floats, Love Sinks, ‘Cut The Ties’, today.

According to vocalist Dan McMaster, the single “touches on the way we disconnect from the things that we know aren’t good for us, whether that means relationships, addictions, and the like. Sometimes it’s hard to let go even when we are in pain or know inside that something isn’t right.

For those who need a reminder who Skyway are given how long it’s been, the band is comprised of Daniel McMaster on vocals, Rohan Chant on guitar, Daniel Hawkins on vocals and guitar, Rupert Muir on bass, and Ben Hallett on drums.

As for all those who remember Skyway from back in the day, now is a good time to reminisce the band’s 2008-2012 success. Across the years they shared stages with an impressive list of acts including Parkway Drive,  The Amity Affliction, All Time LowA Day To Remember, and many others. 

The band also received regular day rotation on triple J for the single ‘Birthdays’, the music video of which has been viewed over 70,000 times. You probably also caught some of their music in a number Sony TV commercials.

Perhaps most notably, Skyway sold out of copies of their 2011 album Finders Keepers in stores across the Australia upon its release, which is a pretty damn good achievement no matter how you look at it.

You can stream ‘Cut The Ties’ now on various streaming platforms, and pre-save or pre-order their brand new EP Hope Floats, Love Sinks here.
