Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Promise Me Tomorrow: Alter The Press Readers should check us out because we're five best friends who put everything into what we do. We don't ever settle with something that our hearts aren't 100% in, whether its the songs, performances, even photographs. Everything we do, we pick apart until it's the best it possibly can be. Our songs are always energetic, always catchy, and you will constantly find yourself singing the tunes in your head after watching a show or listening to us on CD. This is all reflected in our live performance; we feel every show deserves our all, no matter where it is. You could see us play a tiny village pub and we'd still play just like we would at any major venue.

Also, if anyone takes the time to check out our band and listen to our music, we make sure we take the time to thank them personally, and even just have a chat, so if you come to a show, come hang out with us afterwards. On the outside, we're fun, we have a laugh and we jump around all over the place, but behind the scenes we're constantly thinking what is our next step, and how can we make this even better.

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
: All 5 of us had been in various bands, but we never seemed to get anywhere; we never seemed to take it seriously. The reason we started Promise Me Tomorrow was to make music that we all loved and we all felt passionate about. We wanted to make sure we went about things the right way as well. For example, we didn't play a show until we had recorded our debut EP, just so that we knew the songs inside out before anyone saw us play. We had to make a great first impression to set us off on the right path. From personal experience, its extremely hard to find a band where every member has the same determination and work ethic, but in Promise Me Tomorrow we've been lucky cause every one of us wants the same thing. We want to be playing our music and sharing it with as many people as we can, and we're all doing everything we can to achieve this.

ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
: Highlight of Promise Me Tomorrow so far was in February (2011) just gone. We went and recorded a music video for our new single 'You Haven't Seen The Best of Me' with Sitcom Soldiers, who have done videos for Funeral For A Friend, Fightstar, Young Guns and loads more massive names. It was such an amazing experience, so professional and so much fun at the same time. It was a definite highlight of everything we've done so far. The guys at Sitcom were amazing, and helped us out so much. What's even better is as soon as we finished the video shoot we headed out on our first tour of the UK. We met some awesome bands, made some friends and got to play to different audiences every night. I think it was after all of this that it really hit home for each of us. This is what we want to be doing for the rest of our lives, and we are going to make it happen.

ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
: We've got so many plans already for the next year, so we're gonna be extremely busy. At the moment we're writing and preparing to start recording a mini album in April, which will hopefully be released in the summer. Then off the back of that we'll be touring again in September, and if all works out, we'll go back to Sitcom and shoot another video for the next single. We've also got some great shows lined up, so we'll be playing all over the place as well. Our main aim at the moment is to start playing places we haven't played before, just so we can start building our fanbase. We want everyone to know the name Promise Me Tomorrow and that's not gonna happen on its own, we've got to put the work in.
