After self-releasing two EPs and cutting their teeth on the road, Oklahoma-based Life Lessons entered the studio in June of 2017 with producer Brett Romnes to work on their third EP and first with Triple Crown/You Did This. The result is 5 songs that capture the progression of a band that spent months on the road in the previous year. The band went into the studio hoping to capture the authenticity and energy of their live show and intentionally approached the record with a more raw sound in mind.
Life Lessons draws influence from their pop-punk and emo contemporaries, but also from older bands such as Taking Back Sunday and Northstar. The new EP explores the interaction between these influences and expresses it through high energy choruses and quieter contemplative moments. The band hopes their new EP cements their place in the genre while simultaneously carving out a place of their own.
