Commenting on the track, the band said: "’Dramatics’ is about the struggles of seeking to improve your life. It's one journey to identify the changes you want for yourself, but to actively try and become that change often invites even more struggle. As we observe our own failures and lapse into deeper self-loathing, it can feel futile, but sometimes just understanding that you hate where you are is ultimately the seed that will eventually take root, someday, somehow. The song is for anyone who is in that place now. Stay with yourself."
Following tour dates earlier this year with TRASHED, the band recently announced a run of May 2022 UK tour dates with Hampshire punks Buds. along with a string of June 2022 UK headline tour dates and an appearance at Bristol Booze Cruise Festival—tickets are on sale now (see below for details).
Forthcoming debut album How To Be Alone was announced with previous singles ‘Kicking & Screaming’ and ‘Instruction Manual’ earlier this year, picking up early support from online punk tastemakers Maximum Volume, The Punk Site, That’s Good Enough For Me, Alt Corner, Glasgow Punks, Undercurrent BTN and more.

Formed in Brighton 2018, All Better's blend of high energy punk riffs and infectious alt-rock/pop hooks have so far led them to tour the UK and mainland Europe a number of times, sharing the stage with scene favourites Remo Drive, As It Is, Roam, Spanish Love Songs and Pkew Pkew Pkew.
Releasing two extended plays to date, A Turn at Being Cool (2018) and How It All Worked Out (2019), the punk rock trio are known for their high energy live shows and creative music videos, whilst 2021 saw the release of two new standalone singles ‘Jokers Song’ and ‘The Laughing Stock of Me’.
Produced by Daly George (Boston Manor, Creeper, Nervus, Milk Teeth) at The Ranch Production House in Southampton, forthcoming debut album How to be Alone is a nostalgia-packed record that will make you feel like you’ve rediscovered a long lost love from your punk record collection, whilst throwing in plenty of modern pop influences.
"As soon as I heard the demos for the new record I knew the guys were onto something real special,” said George of working with the band. “Making this record has been one of the greatest moments in the studio for me, and I’m very grateful to have been asked to produce it.”
Track by track, the album breaks down feelings of loss, self worth, heartache and the struggles of becoming an adult, but this is by no means a bleak or dreary record—instead, All Better offer positive affirmations with humility and humour whilst reinforcing the constant reminder to not take life too seriously.
Fun, energetic, and full of hooks, with their long-awaited debut All Better have embarked on a more mature path, beautifully blending the biting grit of modern pop with a big nostalgic nod to all those punk records that made the genre great to begin with.
