Striking Matches Give Fans ‘Shameless’ Taste Of New Music

Striking Matches is releasing a new four-song EP, Shameless, on Sept. 22 on Capitol Records. The collection, produced by Kennedy Karate (Børns), will give fans a taste of the duo’s forthcoming sophomore album, due out in 2018.

“Our new music originates from the two years we spent on the road touring our first album,” said the duo of the new project. “During that time, we changed as musicians, and as people. Out of it came the need to create something that felt sonically unique to us. Pushing ourselves as creators was terrifying and exhilarating, but ultimately necessary. We hope it inspires our listeners to step outside of what is comfortable, in order to progress.  With this new music, we needed to be honest, we needed to be brave, and we needed to be shameless.”

Striking Matches, which includes Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, will be joining JOHNNYSWIM on the “Take The World Tour,” which launches on Sept. 19 in Amsterdam. The North American leg kicks off at The Fillmore in San Francisco on Oct. 18 and runs through Nov. 17.
