On the new single and recent signing to Lava/Republic Records the band noted:

“We are overjoyed to have signed to Lava Records. We have made a wonderful home at this label and with the team that work there. We are so grateful for the support from everyone at the label and owe immense gratitude to Mr Jason Flom for believing in this band. We feel lucky to be working alongside a man who’s experience in the music industry speaks for itself as does his dedication to humanitarian and social justice causes. We feel that both of our hearts are aligned and look forward to creating significant change and progression in the world alongside Jason and the team at Lava. “It Gets Better” is a deeply personal song and its message cuts right to the heart of who we are. Our goal is to bring people together, to dismantle the barriers that divide us as a species and to make a change in the world. We are in a time of need. We need to come together and to learn to love again. Learn to listen again. Learn to talk again. Learn to feel again. Learn to let go and let in. It’s a small start but if we try, I do believe that we can start to change things because I myself have learnt that with these small steps it does indeed get better.
Many thanks to Jason, Lava, the team at Universal Republic and most importantly YOU the listener.
With love and gratitude.”

Jamie Campbell Bower and Counterfeit.

In addition, Lava Records Founder and CEO Jason Flom expressed his excitement for the band’s latest release saying: “When I first hear COUNTERFEIT.’s music it made me want to jump around, scream and pump my fist in the air, and when I met Jamie my Spidey senses started tingling like crazy – I knew I was in the presence of a true Rock Star! Jamie and his band have made a record that rocks as hard as their live show does, and inside the grooves there are messages of positivity and hope. I can’t wait for you to hear and see them!!! This is going to be a great ride…….”

“It Gets Better” opens with frontman Jamie Bower’s captivating spoken-word which commands attention and builds to a soon to be infamous & anthemic chorus set to inspire anyone who is having a difficult time in their lives.

Right now, COUNTERFEIT. is preparing to hit the road across North America. The tour kicks off September 6 in Toronto, ON, hits major markets coast-to-coast including Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory on September 10th, and closes out September 16 in Los Angeles, CA at The Moroccan Lounge . In addition, they have announced this week a European & UK Tour on sale today. See full itinerary below. Regular and VIP tickets are available at: www.therealcounterfeit.com.

On their own terms, COUNTERFEIT. staked out a spot at the forefront of modern music. Igniting a catchy combo of genre bending melodies the UK outfit turned up with a universally acclaimed full-length debut in 2017 entitled Together We Are Stronger. Not only did it receive acclaim from Rock Sound, but KERRANG! proclaimed frontman Jamie Bower among the “50 Greatest Rock Stars.” Additionally, they won “Best Live Band” at the AIM Awards and received a nod in the category of “Best British Newcomer at the KERRANG! Awards. They also ignited stages everywhere from Reading & Leeds to Slam Dunk Festival.

Having holed themselves up6 months last year, the band rented a house together so they could hone in on writing their follow-up to debut album“It Gets Better” is the first song to be released leading up to a full release in 2020, and the beginning of what’s to come from the 5-piece.
