New York’s Indie Alt-Pop band The Classic Kids have just released the video for their track Better Days, an uplifting track conveying a message of hope. Produced by Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta of Dirty Canvas (American Authors, Young Rising Sons) the track is a highly anticipated follow up to their debut EP, which received critical acclaim.

The band spoke with The Fountain about working with Shep and Aaron as well as their plans for the rest of the year.

TF: A new video release, you must be excited?

Hell yeah! First we’d like to thank you for having us. Yeah its been a very exciting few weeks and we are extremely grateful. We’re stoked to have a visual to the new single that people can hopefully relate to!

TF: And we are to expect more from you later in the year, a second EP, an LP?

Right now we’re exploring the single route but we definitely have a lot of material so an EP would not be out of question depending on how everything goes. We will probably release another single early in the summer and plan to have another EP around the fall time!

TF: And what has it been like to work with Shep Goodman & Aaron Accetta?

It has been a blast. They really have opened up their studios to us and have really given us a ton of guidance. There’s no doubt that they are extremely talented but they’re also extremely welcoming individuals and make their studio like a home for us. They also have a hysterical sense of humour which really keep all the sessions alive and upbeat every time.

TF: Are you going to be promoting this with a tour, are we likely to see you play live soon?

We will definitely be playing out this year but those plans are currently in the works. We will be making some announcements in the near future!

TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?

Eric James – In this band Id say that the mercury lounge was really awesome! We loved the sound and its right in the middle of the city.

Max Dean – We did a show with a band called The Stolen early on as TCK at iPlay America in NJ and I just remember that show being filled with music heartfelt fans that were just loving and supporting every band that played the show that night!

Matty – Playing at The Bitter End was a pretty surreal experience. There’s a lot of history with that venue and you could just feel the positive vibes from the crowd.

Mikey G – My favourite gig that we played was at Bowery Electric when we released our first EP called Forever Strong. We played with Polar Planet, Don’t Believe in Ghosts and Johnny Miller. It was my favourite show because the stage lighting and the sound of the venue was amazing and all the other groups that played were great as well. The venue had some very good vibes to perform on stage!
