Playing Pretend are a 5 piece Pop-Punk band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We just released our Debut EP, 'Dormancy'. Drawing influence from bands such as All Time Low and Brand New, Playing Pretend combines Pop inspired lyrical writing with heavier punk guitar styled riffing.
I wanted to write something that was honest to my own experiences, while at the same time relatable. You can be overwhelmed by a wave of conflicting emotions when a relationship ends — and that love doesn’t immediately disappear. It’s painful and disorienting. - Matt Warmuth
After their debut album in summer 2019, Give Me A Reason decided to reshuffle the cards and approach the world in a new color. With new members, new music and a new concept, the band flew to LA to record the upcoming EP Vice Versa with Blake Roses of Pastel Recording Company.
