Michelles “Illusions”

Michelles have released the first single, "Illusions", from their forthcoming album, The Empty Promises of Rock and Roll, which is due out on March 8th.

This primarily the work of Michael Daly who is joined on this album by Ryan Farnham on drums.

When asked about this first single Daly had this to say; "“Illusions” was one of the last songs written for the album. Lyrically, it dances around the idea of the masks we wear, literally and metaphorically, the desire to transcend these disguises, and how on some days it really does feel like the sky is falling, but you have to have some lingering faith in the universe just to get up and do it all again.”
