First Everlasting is the second track punk supergroup Fake Names have released ahead of their debut album. 

Punk-rock isn’t well suited to social distancing, isolations or lockdowns. It feels somewhat blasphemous to be listening to First Everlasting whilst sipping a cup of tea, sat at the dining room table staring out at a sky empty of planes. The song's raw, catchy opening riff transports you to a future live show that may feel a long way down the road, but the arrival of Fake Names’ self-titled debut LP is not.

The record is due out on May 8 via Epitaph and is their first following the formation of the supergroup — Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, Bad Religion), Michael Hampton (S.O.A., Embrace, One Last Wish), Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, International Noise Conspiracy, INVSN) and Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside).

First Everlasting follows the same trend as their previous release Brick, in being slightly more accessible than a lot of the members’ previous work. Lyxzén said: 

“[First Everlasting is] a more existential song, about taking a look at yourself and accepting the role you’ve played in your own life. It’s about growing up and moving forward and learning from past mistakes and failures.”
