The Like – Wishing He Was Dead

Soon to be released second album, Release Me, debuts a new mature side to American girl group The Like. New single ‘Wishing He Was Dead’ echoes back to 60s girl groups like The Shangri-Las and The Supremes, but still retaining that youthful essence of their debut, ‘Are You Thinking What I’m Thinking?’. In the five years since their last release, the girls have gone thorough numerous line up changes and shelved sessions, but have come out with a follow up of the year. Produced by Mark Ronson, with support throughout the album from The Dap Kings, first single ‘He’s Not A Boy’ heralded the girls return with a new look and a new sound but ‘Wishing He Was Dead’ cements the bands reputation as one of the forerunners in the girl group revival.

The band perform on the Festival Republic stage at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festival, then head out on a headline tour throughout September. New single Wishing He Was Dead is released 30th August with the album, Release Me, released 30th August also. For more info head to Or you can check out the video below.
