Hard Fi were a noughties indie mainstay, but there hasn’t been any new music in a decade… until today.

Yep, the band have announced a single, EP and tour.

The new song is called Don’t Go Making Plans and is below. The EP of the same name is coming November 1st, and they’re gigging in November.

Singer Richard Archer said the song is about the government’s attempts to criminalize protest:

“Don’t Go Making Plans is sort of a protest song about protest, but I wanted to encapsulate that message into something that was still a pop song… A track that you can still dance to in a club or play on the radio, because a song like that you can make a real connection to and circumnavigates the pointless restrictions being put in our way. Governments passing laws to stop protests that ’cause more than minor disruption feels like something out of a dystopian film… The whole point of protest is disruption. You’re trying to interrupt the inevitable flow of things, to encourage the people running the country to think again, especially when you have a government that doesn’t seem to be bothered by what people actually need.”
