The Lunar Year – consisting of Connor Ball of The Vamps and Sasa Macek of of Cheat Codes – have recently released a fantastic new track titled “Boys Will Cry.”
Get your tissues at hand if you’re listening to “Boys Will Cry” for the first time, as it will take you on an emotional rollercoaster. Men’s mental is an extremely important topic to be talking about in today’s society, and the punk-pop duo are spreading the word on the matter in the most beautiful way. The song starts out soothing and soft until it gradually builds into a masterpiece. Connor’s vocals are simply flawless, and the guitar solo in the instrumental? Mind blowing.
To make the song that extra special, Connor gave an incredible dance performance in the semi-finals of Dancing On Ice. By doing this, not only was he able to showcase his newly found dancing/skating skills, but viewers who were unaware of his music before got see that side of him too. Unfortunately, despite earning 38/40 points, and as much as viewers loved the performance from The Vamps star, it was unable to secure him a spot in the final. However, fans are incredibly proud of his journey and this remarkable song did a terrific job of sending out an important message to a wide audience. Although he may not have made to the final, he should feel proud of what he has done.
The Lunar Year will be doing a handful of live shows with special guests Bronnie and The Tyne at the end of May. Tickets and dates can be found here. Be sure to snap your tickets up quick because it’s going to be a vibe! In the meantime, “Boys Will Cry” is now available to stream via all major streaming platforms, and you can keep up to date on The Lunar Year on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
