Holiday Trip of a Lifetime

Holiday Trip of a Lifetime is the third studio album by Australian pop-rock band End of Fashion. It was released on 4 May 2012[1] by Universal Music Group.[2]


On the making of the album, frontman Justin Burford has said, "the whole process of writing and recording this album had to be the most fun two years of my life".[3]

During the process of recording the album, End of Fashion drummer Mike Hobbs left the band, as he didn't like the album's "studio pop band" approach.[3] Burford took on the drum parts.[3] Bass guitarist Tom King also left and was replaced by Simon Fasolo.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Brisbane's now-defunct Rave magazine gave the album a positive review, writing, "for those raised on meat-and-potatoes Aussie melodic indie guitar rock, this could be considered a betrayal of Young Modern proportions. However, I'm hearing a re-energised band making some of the slinkiest pop of their career".[4] X-Press Magazine wrote, "admittedly, the album gets repetitive, but overall it makes for an enjoyable listen."[5]
