Hard-Fi Returns with New Single ‘Don’t Go Making Plans’ After a Decade

by Patria

Hard-Fi, the indie group led by Richard Archer, has made a comeback with their first new music in ten years. The track, titled ‘Don’t Go Making Plans,’ is the lead single from their upcoming EP of the same name. This summery anthem, which doubles as a protest song, addresses the recent clashes between police and demonstrators in the UK.

Explaining the song’s message, Archer said, “A track that you can still dance to in a club or play on the radio, because a song like that you can make a real connection to and circumnavigates the pointless restrictions being put in our way. Governments passing laws to stop protests that ’cause more than minor disruption feels like something out of a dystopian film. The whole point of protest is disruption. You’re trying to interrupt the inevitable flow of things, to encourage the people running the country to think again, especially when you have a government that doesn’t seem to be bothered by what people actually need.”

The full EP is scheduled for release on November 1, coinciding with a 10-date UK headline tour in the same month.

Pre-sale tickets will be available on May 22 at 10am for those who sign up in advance at hard-fi.planet.fans. General ticket sales begin on May 24 at 10am (BST).

The ‘Hard to Beat’ rockers, whose last studio album ‘Killer Sounds’ reached the UK Top 10 in 2011, are eager to perform their new material alongside fan favorites like ‘Cash Machine’ and ‘Living for the Weekend’ during their upcoming tour.

Reflecting on the band’s reunion, Archer shared, “Playing gigs together really rekindled the fire at the heart of the band, and as much as we enjoyed playing our older songs – and audiences loved hearing them. We all felt the urge to create something new.”

‘Don’t Go Making Plans’ follows their 2014 track ‘Move Over,’ featured on the ‘Hard-Fi: Best of 2004–2014’ compilation.
