Morain are a band with a very bright future ahead of them. After turning heads in 2012 with a promising debut album, the band are set to return stronger than ever with their latest EP Worlds Apart. But as TNS sit down with vocalist Wil Frost, it begins to emerge that things haven’t been as rosy as the band's ambitious exterior might suggest: "We were a bit worried coming into this release actually," he confesses. "Our debut EP 'Are We Lost' came out in 2012, and we were active as a band in 2013 and did some really cool things, but we didn’t have time to put any new music out. So when it came to the start of this year we were very self-conscious about whether the fans we gained from the EP would still be interested in the band." But the band’s latest single ‘Who Would’ve Known’ alleviated any concerns and was met with universal approval, allowing the band to approach the rest of 2014 with renewed optimism: "The reaction to the first single has been incredible, and it’s the most positive response we’ve ever received from a release. I couldn’t ask for anything more really." A modest tour with fellow up-and-comers Alexander followed the single release, as the band began to build some momentum for the year. "It was nice to get back out on the road again," reveals Frost. "Every show was good and we had good turnouts. It was nice to be on the road with four guys who share our work ethic and passion. It was really a week full of laughs and having a good time." With the tour finished, the band continued to build up to the release of Worlds Apart, which hasn’t been an easy task for Frost, especially given the EP had to be funded by the band themselves:
