You can now relive Inhaler’s summer tour with the new music video for ‘My Honest Face’ – check it out below.
The video features footage of Inhaler’s 2021 main stage slots at Reading & Leeds Festivals as well as clips from their ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This‘ headline tour.
Inhaler released their debut album in July, where it became the fastest-selling debut album on vinyl by any band this century. ‘It Won’t Always Be Like This’ also saw Inhaler become the first Irish band to top the Album Charts with a debut in thirteen years – a record previously held by The Scripts.
Speaking about the record to NME, Inhaler vocalist Eli Hewson said: “When we were teenagers we’d write about the girl you fancy or the house party you went to, but when lockdown hit it was like, ‘If you’re ever going to write about the world you’re going to do it now.’
“We wanted to make a record about that weird area between being an adult and a teenager, trying to find yourself and getting lost and finding yourself again, getting lost again, going for a pint, wondering why the world exists.”

Reviewing Inhaler’s set at Reading Festival, NME said: “They’ve clearly studied hard at the altar of indie. ‘We Have To Move On’ drenches early Killers synths over Strokes-y arena urgency and a spot of The Smiths’ melancholic atmosphere, the choppy post-punk of ‘When’s It Gonna Break’ lifts ‘00s indie out of the landfill.
“‘Who’s Your Money On (Plastic House)’ has a Two Door Cinema Club bounce and Temper Trap‘s aural sunshine, while closer ‘My Honest Face’ erupts with fist-pumping ‘Sex On Fire’ dancefloor magnetism.”
