The EP will be released digitally and on 12″ vinyl and cassette, tomorrow (Friday, January 29) on Spartan Records.
Engineered and produced by Jon Hicks (Relient K, Haste the Day, Dance Gavin Dance) in his aptly-titled studio, Jon’s House, This Is Fine captures the angst and misery of formative years, set on the backdrop of struggling to do even that. It focuses on shortcomings, the burdens of stress, overly critical self-analysis, and coming to terms with it all (the acknowledgement of which is where the title originates).
Pre-orders are available here.
The band is currently wrapping up a tour with label mates The Foxery.
1.28.16 Denton, TX – Gatsby’s Mansion

Praise for Secret Stuff:
“…passionate, emotional indie rock that’s rough around the edges but sweet in the middle.” – Substream
” Full of honest musicality and heart-on-your-sleeve lyricism, this ep is guaranteed to garner a lot of attention when it drops.”- Couch King
“With the way that this three piece bares all on this EP, it’s hard to believe that they go through such an emotional journey in only five short songs, and it only makes one wonder what they’ll be able to accomplish on any future releases. This Is Fine promises a bright future for Secret Stuff, and by the end of the EP, you’ll be rooting for them, too.” (Rating: 5/5)- The Prelude Press
“…this is a band showing plenty of promise. The EP conveys a lot of emotions and the musicianship is top quality. It will be interesting to see where they go with a full length release.”- The Punk Archive
“…a really great EP with some excellent musicians working together to create some spot on melodies. Secret Stuff should be proud of what they have made …this is certainly a band who in the future are going to be a force to be reckoned with.”- Thinking Lyrically
