LA-based pop-rockers, Romance & Rebellion have released a lyric video for their new single "BOYS DON'T CRY." Watch and listen HERE. The single is off of the band's sophomore EP, Amps & Anthems, which debuted earlier this month.
On "BOYS DON'T CRY," vocalist David LaViola shares, "Boys don't have to be 'boys'...girls don't have to be 'girls'...and everyone should be able to rock a little pink. 'BOYS DON'T CRY' is an anthem for anyone who is anything but normal."
Produced by Warren Huart (Aerosmith, James Blunt, Korn), Stefan Litrownik (One Direction, Andy Grammer), and Lennon Leppert (Over Atlantic) Amps & Anthems is a 4-track EP that tears out all of the romantic innocence you've come to expect from Romance & Rebellion; distorts it, and cranks up the volume. On their new music, LaViola says, "These four tracks are filled with emo-studded angst, dripping with candy-coated heartache, wrapped in youthfully rebellious pop rock."
Romance & Rebellion was established in 2015 in Echo Park, CA. By the end of that year, the band had created a buzz around themselves solely using social media and live performances, and soon there after was recognized by pop producer Stefan Litrownik. After the release of their debut EP in June 2016, they had to opportunity to take the stage at influential festivals such as Warped Tour and SXSW, and even headlined Emo Nite LA.
