Songfacts®:

  • Pure Love is an English-American Alternative Rock band formed in July 2011 by former Gallows frontman Frank Carter and ex-Hope Conspiracy and Suicide File guitarist Jim Carroll. Their debut album Anthems was released on February 4, 2013.
  • This was their second single, which was released on May 30, 2012. Carter explained the song's meaning to NME: "It's about good clean fun, a bit 'lads on tour' and being part of the gang. Every song on the record is a celebration of something, whether it's kicking back against something, or celebrating a new lease of life - which for both of us, is what this band is."
