Glory Fades are hell bent on making up for lost time. After years of honing their songwriting skills, the Wolverhampton-based 5 piece alternative rock band released their brand of infectious rock tunes in the form of debut EP "Late in the Day" in Summer 2017.  Brand New Ep "Everything is Lost" was released in October 2018, and with a new hunger for gigging, the band are doing everything they can to get their songs heard.
"Everything is Lost" is the 2nd EP from Glory Fades, and first with new singer/songwriter Justin Griffiths. Recorded in the summer of 2018 at Univibe Studios, Birmingham with Dan Willett (Creature) and featuring guest vocals from Amy Wyatt (Secrets of Mariana), the new 6 track EP was released on 2nd October 2018. See below for track player, featuring song notes and lyrics.
The opener “The Reckoning” shows the spirit of the band and let us notice how fine could this Ep.
With an American sound influence, as we can listen to it in “Broken Bones And Tattooed Hearts”, 
Glory Fades proposes a honest work, maybe that does not lack originality but pleasant to listen and that manages to highlight the professionalism of the band.
More deeper is “Growing Apart “ that sees the participation of the singer Amy Wyatt, a piece more quiet with an indy touch, mades of good guitars and melodic vocals.
“Angels with Filthy Souls” back us to the rhythm of the previous tracks, more airy and with a catchy chorus.
Such light-hearted is “18 Years” with its American sound closest to the new punk with melodic interludes, a a perfect radio song!
Acoustic guitar for “Nomad”, another good piece in “Everything is Lost”, brilliant voice and for this enjoyable song.
In short, Glory Fades made a good work, in which their music manages to infect good vibrations and excellent riffs, a really interesting voice that is modeled according to the tracks and a rhythm that manages to perfectly frame the style of the band.
