In addition, Lava Records Founder and CEO Jason Flom expressed his excitement for the band’s latest release saying: “When I first heard COUNTERFEIT.’s music it made me want to jump around, scream and pump my fist in the air, and when I met Jamie my Spidey senses started tingling like crazy-I knew I was in the presence of a true Rock Star! Jamie and his band have made a record that rocks as hard as their live show does, and inside the grooves there are messages of positivity and hope. I can’t wait for you to hear and see them!!! This is going to be a great ride…….”
“It Gets Better” opens with frontman Jamie Bower’s captivating spoken-word which commands attention and builds to a soon to be infamous & anthemic chorus set to inspire anyone who is having a difficult time in their lives.

On their own terms, COUNTERFEIT. staked out a spot at the forefront of modern music. Igniting a catchy combo of genre bending melodies the UK outfit turned up with a universally acclaimed full-length debut in 2017 entitled Together We Are Stronger. Not only did it receive acclaim from Rock Sound, but KERRANG! proclaimed frontman Jamie Bower among the “50 Greatest Rock Stars.” Additionally, they won “Best Live Band” at the AIM Awards and received a nod in the category of “Best British Newcomer at the KERRANG! Awards. They also ignited stages everywhere from Reading & Leeds to Slam Dunk Festival.
Having holed themselves up6 months last year, the band rented a house together so they could hone in on writing their follow-up to debut album. “It Gets Better” is the first song to be released leading up to a full release in 2020, and the beginning of what’s to come from the 5-piece.
