A Work Of Fiction Release New Single

Alt-punk band A Work Of Fiction have released their new single, entitled Falling to the Rhythm from their upcoming EP Write Your Own Story which is due to come out at some point this year.

Frontman Matt Deulley said: “Falling to the Rhythm is a realization of one’s need to continue to live, despite the struggles of purpose and time maintenance. Deciding who you want to be in this life is not always an easy feat, and doing so before you die seems as daunting a task as any. But, we all have to choose sooner or later what it means to be an individual; to find worth in the simple influence we have over the people and circumstances in our lives.”
