Fake Problems announce new single and video

Fake Problems are set to release their new single ‘Diamond Rings’ on September 7th following on from their extremely successful Reading and Leeds appearances and in anticipation to their support slot with Frank Turner in October. Vocalist Chris Farren explains the track and its evolution as a part of current full length ‘It’s Great To Be Alive’ – “Diamond Rings really came out of nowhere for this record.  The original version of it is a dark, slow, Tom Waits-esque country song, but that vibe just didn’t fit with what we wanted to do for the record – so we decided to destroy it completely and rebuild it from the ground up.  The only original components the song remains with are the lyrics and chord progression.  I’ve had a few people come up to me and ask me specifically what this song is about, and I always turn it around on them to see what they think it’s about.  And it’s always far more interesting than what the song is actually about.”
