This Century’s “Fool’s Game”: Idolator Premiere

Jillian Pellegrini | May 11, 2013 9:00 am

For fans of artists like Hey MondayThe Ready Set or the more recent work of Good Charlotte, pop-rock band This Century is the next big thing to look out for. The Arizona quartet has already made a name for themselves with an impressive grassroots fanbase and a tour with the aforementioned artists. And leading up to the May 14 release of their sophomore album, Biography of Heartbreak, the band has been unveiling songs from the LP during a 13 Days of Heartbreak campaign. For Day 11, we’re premiering a brand new track: “Fool’s Game.”

The semi-dark song declares “love is a fool’s game” over a dance-ready beat, as the verses build to a full-sounding, super-synthy chorus that features lead singer Joel Kanitz’s falsetto and some catchy whoa-oh refrains. If sharp electro-pop is your thing, this track will hit the sweet spot. Check it out below.

This Century — “Fool’s Game”

Biography of Heartbreak drops Tuesday (pre-order here), and you can catch This Century on The 8123 Tour across North America this summer with The Maine, A Rocket To The Moon and Brighten.
