After releasing three singles in 2022, After Elmer throws a big fat cherry on top of their punk-cake. ‘246 Toothpicks’ is a big, punchy, anthemic new single, which captivates you from the very first second with dizzying tempo’s, smart lyrics and some tasty guitar-action.
The band says about their new single: “the song is a big shout through space and time, to our former selves. How many times would you love to reach back through time to tell your former, sad self that everything is gonna be okay, and that you’ll come out stronger? This song is exactly that, it has that full-circle feeling to it. With that, it’s also a song that – in between the lines – says to be proud of whatever you’ve accomplished.”
Last year, the band released three new singles: ‘Flip a Coin (Overthinking)’, ‘Skyline’ and ‘When We Break’, for which they also filmed music videos. In their webseries BAND DIARY AND MORE STUFF, the band takes you behind the scenes of those video’s.
After Elmer has been around since 2018 and released their debut-EP ‘Look Alive’ in 2020. They’ve been playing lots of cities apart from their vibrant hometown of Rotterdam. Earlier in 2023 they played the big Pinguin Radio Showcase in Groningen, during the ESNS-festival.
The singles were recorded with Stijn Donders of Raiko Records, with contributions by Tom Prendergast of Bury Tomorrow. Their new music video takes place in the harbour of Rotterdam and was filmed by Oscar Hu.
