The release follows huge anticipation which built following the release of teasers for the title track Anything Can Happen. Teaser clips quickly racked up more than 4 million views.
The single features on the band’s 6-track EP of the same name and is drawn from Matt Weedon’s personal experience of the overwhelming, slow sinking despair that depression can cast before being replaced by defiant hope.
Tors explained, “Anything Can Happen is probably the most important song we’ve released to date. It’s an honest stripping back of our ongoing experiences with depression and a hopeful reminder to celebrate the tiny victories on the long road to recovery.
“Getting better isn’t a quick fix, one-and-done goal it’s an ever-evolving process we need to keep checking in on. This song is our way of saying, let’s celebrate being okay and embrace the time it takes to get there instead of feeling defeated by it.”
The EP also features previous singles Colour In The Ordinary and Garden On The Kitchen Floor alongside Lonely, Does He Make You Happy and the recent duet with Lily Williams I Don’t Miss You (Except For When I Do).
Tors will be heading out on a UK and Ireland tour supporting Sam Ryder, opening on 17 March. The tour includes a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy as well as a Liverpool gig at the O2 Academy.
