Minor Planets hail from sunny Barcelona and play their own style of Get Up Kids influenced melodic rock. ‘Neverending Days’ is their first CD and consists of six hook-laden songs, blending melodic rock with the punk rock roots that have accompanied the band's members for almost two decades.
"The songs talk about everyday themes that have concerned us all at some point, always seen through the lens of experience, such as the loss of someone important in our lives, labour exploitation and the wildest capitalism, the passage of time and aging, as well as the toxicity and sectarianism that sometimes take hold of certain alternative music scenes in big cities, where what begins as an altruistic and egalitarian proposition ends up becoming an elitist and exclusive space." Jordi, Minor Planets. The EP was recorded and produced in February 2023 at El Turonet studio with Claudi Arimany, and mastered by Mario Patiño at La Atlantida Studio. It will be out in October.
Neverending Days CD tracklist:
1. The Distance 2. Sunsets & Sunrises 3. Santa Carla 4. Bakery Chain 5. Outsiders 6. Caper.

LYRICS - Sunsets and sunrises
Never-ending days, eternal mornings And sunsets, and sunrises The fucking summer, summer commercials And sunsets, and sunrises And you don’t know why But you’re feeling well, You don’t know why You can blame the vibes Another year has passed and gone The summer ends, the winter comes And you can’t avoid the feeling you’ve another cycle in your back The weight starts to be too much And you appraise the trips experienced But now you only think (that) the cycle’s closed Anxiety is coming back Funny days are over That weight on your shoulders No more sunsets or sunrises Now the days are shorter You feel the end is closer No more sunsets or sunrises And you don’t know why But you’re feeling well, You don’t know why You can blame the vibes Another year has passed and gone The summer ends, the winter comes And you can’t avoid the feeling you’ve another cycle in your back The weight starts to be too much And you appraise the trips experienced But now you only think (that) the cycle’s closed Anxiety is coming back Anxiety is coming back Sunsets and sunrises
