The full-length feature film Teenage Badass released digitally Friday, while the fictional band at the movie’s core dropped their second single, “Dick Cheney”. The track, by Stylo and the Murder Dogs, officially premiered via Alt Press before releasing worldwide in digital form.
The film is composed of an ensemble cast including Mcabe Gregg (Enlisted), Julie Ann Emery (Preacher), Kevin Corrigan (Pineapple Express), Madelyn Deutch (The Year of Spectacular Men), Elsie Hewitt (Dave), and Dillon Lane (Countdown). The movie also stars Evan Ultra, who wrote the new single as well as the rest of the film’s twelve song soundtrack (forthcoming).
‘“Dick Cheney” was originally written years ago and is really about me coming to realize that the long term relationship I was in was slowly drowning me. Most of these songs in the soundtrack are talking about dealing with life in love and love for life, and how to keep it all in balance. Is it better to go your whole life pretending you’re happy or blow your whole life up in order to truly seek out happiness?’, Ultra says of the track.
Of the film release, director and co-producer Grant McCord says, “I’m excited to bring to audiences this band movie that’s based on way too many true stories. This film is our zany retelling of the ups and downs of starting a band with your friends – the backdoor deals, the petty drama, and the emotional immaturity of being young and ambitious.”
Cameos in Teenage Badass also include Pat Kirch (The Maine) and Jim Adkins (Jimmy Eat World). More new music from the film is to come in the form of its twelve song soundtrack.
“Dick Cheney” is available worldwide on all digital streaming services.
Teenage Badass is available digitally on Apple Movies now.
