British-American rock sensation The Small Hours have recorded and mixed two new tunes at Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood. Their upcoming EP, entitled “When We Are Careless” follows hard on the heels of the band’s 4-song EP blitz, last year’s “Ether and Make Believe.”

Often compared to early Muse, Radiohead, Elbow and Queens of the Stone Age, The Small Hours are a four-piece, British-American rock band comprised of Robin Goodchild (vocals, guitar) Edward Shiers (drums), John Bennett (guitar) and John Armstrong (bass).

“Our new EP pushes our envelope with edgier music to start off the New Year,” said the band’s co-founder Robin Goodchild. “Our fan base grew exponentially last year and we wanted to jump right into 2013 and give them something to scream and shout about.”
