While on tour in Europe supporting Avril Lavigne, pop-punk duo girlfriends have announced a new EP.

Entitled Over My Dead Body, the release is due out on May 12 via Big Noise, with Travis Mills revealing that, “These songs came about in a completely new way for us as a band because they were made one by one with some time in between but somehow sound so cohesive and like we wrote them all that way on purpose.

“We got to do a lot of cool things while making the EP and being able to tour while recording really informed some of the songs. They’re annoyingly catchy, the hooks are big and better than ever and it’s a statement for us as a new band.”

To coincide with the announcement, girlfriends have released new single Life’s A Brittany, which Travis explains was “one of those songs that started off as a complete joke in my head”.

“I almost felt guilty writing it because it’s so conversational and ‘easy,’ that I had to question if it was good or not,” he says. “The beauty about working with a producer like [Andrew] Goldstein is he does a really great job at stripping away the ‘rules’ of songwriting. If it’s good it’s good, and I think it’s a song a lot of people would be scared to make, but it hits the nail on the head of who we are not only as a band but as people.”
