“It's always hard to pick favorites, but ‘Understanding In A Car Crash’ has to be my favorite Thursday song to date,” WATG guitarist/vocalist Steve Cobucci explains to AP. “The type of honesty found in their music has been lost for a while in the scene and so this song was a perfect for what we wanted to do in this EP, which was to play some songs from our early days growing up that inspired us to do what we do musically.”
"Back to School" is set to drop September 30th and has the following track listing:
1. Deadbolt (originally by Thrice)
2. Understanding In A Car Crash (originally by Thursday)
3. Sleepwalking (originally by Blindside)
