PREMIERE: Twenty One Pilots opening act Finish Ticket sounds so “Wrong,” it’s right

Alameda, California’s Finish Ticket is a bit of a rare breed: They’re an indie rock band who can actually rock. Just take one listen to their new EP, When Night Becomes Day, for proof—or if that’s too much work, simply press “play” on the lyric video for “Wrong,” which we’re debuting today. The song is a driving rock number that could land the quintet comparisons to Young The Giant with a powerful set of lyrics that beg your attention. Frontman Brendan Hoye explains:

“‘Wrong’ is a realization that adulthood is not at all what I thought it would be and trying to cope with that. It’s really not a happy song, but it’s a song that I think a lot of people will be able to relate to.”

Finish Ticket’s When Night Becomes Day EP is available now via Elektra Records.
