New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Belgian punk outfit For I Am's 2nd full album 'Late Bloomers' consists of a mixture of the band's signature happy, fast pop-punk songs and a number of tracks that try to deviate from the standard, all laced together by lead singer Hanne's edgy vocals.

After having released a first EP called '15 Minutes Late' in 2015 and a first full album called 'All About Perspectives' in 2017, For I Am decided it was time to shake things up and take their music to a higher level with the release of 'Late Bloomers' in 2019.

Get ready for a whirlwind of songs that will take you on a rollercoaster ride through all kinds of different emotions.

The band has released "Die Hard" a new single/music video, which is now streaming here:

About the new song "Die Hard":
Hanne: "Die Hard tackles the current-day issue of people being stressed out on a daily basis, not wanting to admit they cannot take any more to the outside world. We very quickly tend to say "I'm okay" when asked how we are. But often that's a lie. If you're not okay, try to be honest and tell people about it. That's the only way you'll ever, in fact, be okay again. But we realise it's not that simple, 'cause old habits die hard…"

The punk rock/pop punk outfit is proud to announce 'Late Bloomers' will be available on:

Over the course of 5 years, the band has released an EP called '15 Minutes Late' (2015), a debut album by the name of 'All About Perspectives' (2017) and compilation CD made for their Japanese Tour in 2019.

Encouraged by their rising sales and enthused audiences, the band went back to the studio and recorded its second full album called 'Late Bloomers,' The album will be released on November 11th, 2019.

To promote their music, For I Am played a great deal of national and international shows, including several international tours through Europe, the UK and Japan. On top of that, they opened club shows for bands such as The Bombpops, Propagandhi, Lagwagon, Frenzal Rhomb, Iron Chic, Not On Tour and Satanic Surfers.

2019 has been a great year for the band as they got to play Belgian punk festivals GROEZROCK, El Topo Goes Loco and Brakrock Ecofest and they also headed out to Slovenia a second time for Punk Rock Holiday.

"...fantastically catchy, fast pop-punk with oodles of fun 'whoa-oh'-type singalongs, like Descendents meets Paramore meets the best party you've ever been to…."- Shout Louder
"If you like your pop-punk served up frantic and melodic then For I Am are a band you really need to check out, and for me they are the best new band I've encountered in a fair while..."- The Punk Site
"...terrific punk rock with amazingly strong female vocals reminiscent of Paramore but much more aggressive. With pounding bass, fast paced guitar licks... I'm instantly in love." Punk Online
" of the most exciting pop-punk albums I've heard in a while."- Colin's Punk Rock World
"For I Am keep proving that they have the skills to make great pop (punk) songs but also ass-kicking punk rock tunes."- Out Of Step Fanzine
