Dumpweed? Like, the blink-182 song? You bet your ass. Although the NJ quartet is rooted in pop punk, their new single “Commitment Is A Dirty Word” injects a darker throwback AFI vibe, complete with mysterious imagery and lightning-fast melodies. The official music video was released today along with their third record The Golden Snake.
“‘Commitment is a Dirty Word’ is a battle between a mother and father dealing with the pain they’ve caused each other,” says vocalist Eric Palermo. “It’s destructive and chaotic and it shows the domestic struggles many married couples have. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, people mistreat and hurt each other. Here’s our interpretation of how that feels and the damage it does to both the people involved and the world around them.“
