Sunflower Bean announce new EP ahead of Manchester tour date

Sunflower Bean will headline at Manchester Academy

Ahead of a run of UK dates which include a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy, Sunflower Bean have announced a new EP.

The New York trio will release the awesomely titled King Of The Dudes on 25 January 2019.

To celebrate the announcement, Sunflower Bear have also shared the first single from the EP Come For Me.  Speaking about the track, Julia Cumming commented, “This song was inspired by inner strength, power, and sexual freedom. In 2018 there is no time to waste and no time for shame. This song is a declaration of that. Do you really want to come for me? Do you really want to waste my time? The song is a dare, a threat, and a beckoning.”
