(NEW YORK, NY) – Alt-punk band 408 have shared their latest single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend.” This is the first release following their global multi-album deal with the alternative label, Big Noise.
“Break Up With Your Girlfriend" is a sun-kissed slice of bouncy, late ’90s pop/rock produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep) and written with Kyle Fishman (Morgan Wallen, Luke Bryan) and Nick Bailey. (Machine Gun Kelly, jxdn)
Listen to “Break Up With Your Girlfriend” here.
Pulling from their 90s alternative roots while taking influence from Third Eye Blind, the personal track was written to express the dichotomy between reality and fantasy, while bridging the romantic and sarcastic.
“Things aren’t always greener on the other side, but then why does it always seem like it is? That is the dichotomy of this track and why it needed to be talked about. Life isn’t always easy to navigate, it's important to us as a band to highlight a sensitive subject of questioning if you are even with the right person in life” shares the group.
The “Break Up With Your Girlfriend” music video drops on Friday, October 6.
This sense of musical escapism has been a guiding force for 408, named after a Venice Florida highway member Mark Faroudi frequented in his youth.
The Orlando based quartet aims to preserve the spirit of late ‘90s and early 2000s pop punk while also incorporating elements from EDM, hip-hop and electronica. Bridging the gap between genres while racking up nearly 500,000 Spotify listeners, the group’s genre blending sound went viral on TikTok with their song “We Don’t Get High Like We Used To” after their track “Mark Hoppus” (feat Kellin Quinn & Magnolia Park) gained praise from Mark himself.
Members Mark Faroudi, Nick Hanus, and Nick Roque are all featured vocalists across different tracks while also ripping bass and guitars respectively. The interchanging vocals separate 408 from all other acts and allows for contrast and diversity currently unseen within the music scene. Backed by virtuoso Jake Cerretani on the drums. 408 has regularly recorded and consistently play-listed on Spotify and Apple Music editorials. 408’s debut album “Out of It” was recorded at the Audio Compound with Andrew Karpovck and Andrew Wade, together creating tracks such as “Mark Hoppus” and “Backfired” which have amassed over 2.5 million total plays alone. 408 continues to push boundaries by writing with Billboard writers, Nick Bailey and Kyle Fishman to create music that is both genre defining and ahead of the curve. Blink-182 frontman Mark Hoppus himself tweeted 408’s single “Mark Hoppus” and gave praise to the song and the band for paying homage to him. In March 2023, 408 went viral on Tik Tok, gaining over 2 million views and 80,000 followers in 14 days with their new song “We Don’t Get High Like We Used To.”
408 will be embarking on a US tour with Magnolia Park, poptropicalslutz and Tx2 this October. The tour will kick off on October 5 in Houston and wrap in Cincinnati later that month. Tickets are on sale now here.
