Melbourne alt-rock quintet Better Half have announced their highly anticipated debut EP ‘Maybe I Was Wrong’ to be released May 11 via Resist Records. To coincide with the announcement, the band have given listeners the first taste of the release with a music video for ‘Rest Your Head

Forming in 2015 as a side project of Thornhill guitarist, Matt Van Duppen (guitar) and Belle Haven guitarist, Chris Vernon (vocals), Better Half have been slowly making a name for themselves in the Melbourne alternative rock/emo scene off the back of their first two singles, ‘Reasons To Leave’ and ‘Mourn’. 

After their full lineup was completed, the band went on to support the likes of Citizen, Turnover, Touché Amore, Being As An Ocean and more during 2015-2017. Better Half began writing and recording their long awaited debut 7″ EP ‘Maybe I Was Wrong’ through most of 2017 which is finally set to be released via Resist Records on May 11. The EP was entirely self-produced by Van Duppen and Vernon, with Chris also engineering, mixing and mastering the release.
