“Too Little Too Late” – melodic ska pop punk rockers FOR THE RECORD premiere new song & video!

Accessible, honest and high-octane tunes, with influences from the likes of Streetlight Manifesto, Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish, Central California ska-punks FOR THE RECORD just released their new EP, ‘The Mess They Call My 20’s’, out July 19th on Manic Kat Records! The Visalia based ska/punk outfit, deliver an engaging, energetic, and horn-fuelled sound; a melting pot of expression and enthusiasm developed over eight years and three promising records. The new offering is their most seasoned to date, a finely tuned celebration of horns and high-tempo pop-punk, and today we’re pleased to premiere the official music video for the song “Too Little Too Late”!

“The concept of the video is basically ‘the best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry’. The song is the classic story of unrequited love and we feel the story of the video really portrays that. It was a blast to make and a memorable experience for us all.” – Niko East

Too Little Too Late lyrics:

Well you’re the one I want
But you’re the one that I can’t have
And I can’t see any way of making this work
Without your man getting mad
And baby, I’m not your type
But it’s just not in my blood
To take advantage of a sweet little girl like you

And I’m wishing that I could see you again
But I don’t think that I can stay just your friend
And I know that you won’t fall for that again
But I’m gonna go ahead and try
Sometimes you just gotta roll the dice.

Now I’m gonna get my way
There ain’t nothing that you can say
There aint no ifs ands buts, no messing around
Because I’m gonna take you out on the town
And baby I’m not your type
But it’s just not in my blood
But something about you’s got me changing my mind

And I’m wishing that I could see you again
But I don’t think that I can stay just your friend
And I know that you won’t fall for that again
But I’m gonna go ahead and try
Sometimes you just gotta roll the dice.

That’s when she told me that she never wants to see me again
I’m guessing that she found herself a new boyfriend
And I’ll admit
It’s a bit
Too much to take
So I guess writing her this song was too little
Too late
