408 Releases New Single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend”
September 29, 2023 (NEW YORK, NY) – Today, viral alt-punk band 408 have shared their latest single “Break Up With Your Girlfriend.” This is the first release following their global multi-album deal with alternative powerhouse label, Big Noise.
“Break Up With Your Girlfriend” is a sun-kissed slice of bouncy, late ’90s pop/rock produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep) and written with Kyle Fishman (Morgan Wallen, Luke Bryan) and Nick Bailey. (Machine Gun Kelly, jxdn)

Pulling from their 90s alternative roots while taking influence from Third Eye Blind, the personal track was written to express the dichotomy between reality and fantasy, while bridging the romantic and sarcastic.
Check out their exclusive interview with idobi Radio’s Gone Fishin’ here: https://idobi.com/idobi-radio/
“Things aren’t always greener on the other side, but then why does it always seem like it is? That is the dichotomy of this track and why it needed to be talked about. Life isn’t always easy to navigate, it’s important to us as a band to highlight a sensitive subject of questioning if you are even with the right person in life” shares the group.
Stay tuned for the “Break Up With Your Girlfriend” music video dropping next Friday, October 6.
This sense of musical escapism has been a guiding force for 408, named after a Venice Florida highway member Mark Faroudi frequented in his youth.
The Orlando based quartet aims to preserve the spirit of late ‘90s and early 2000s pop punk while also incorporating elements from EDM, hip-hop and electronica. Bridging the gap between genres while racking up nearly 500,000 Spotify listeners, the group’s genre blending sound went viral on TikTok with their song “We Don’t Get High Like We Used To” after their track “Mark Hoppus” (feat Kellin Quinn & Magnolia Park) gained praise from Mark himself.
408 will be embarking on a US tour with Magnolia Park, poptropicalslutz and Tx2 this October. The tour will kick off on October 5 in Houston and wrap in Cincinnati later that month. Tickets are on sale now here.
