hard life (fka easy life) return with new single, "tears"

Following a well-publicised fall-out with easyGroup, hard life (formerly known as easy life) have returned with the brand new single, "tears".

Last year, easy life took to their socials to open up about being sued by EasyJet’s holding company EasyGroup over their name. Their final release was the FINNEAS-produced "Trust Exercises". Now, eight months later, they've returned with new music and a new name.

Introducing "tears", Murray Matravers comments: “Since our pretty public run-in with the well-known airline, my life has been turned upside down a little bit. Everything has been on hold. All of us have had to reassess what the band means to us and come to terms with the idea that everything has a beginning, a middle and indeed, an end. The naive optimism we had in easy life has been swapped for something more raw and, I suppose, authentic. Sitting with my thoughts and going backwards and forwards with IP lawyers, I wrote ‘tears’. It highlights the absurdity of the situation as well as thanking the people who have had my back throughout this whole ordeal. Of course, this song makes me smile, and I suppose that is my way of processing. Anyway, we’re back. Thanks for your patience.”

"tears" is out now.
