Rock N Roll was meant to say something, to be something, to scream – It is time to hit the BALLPIT! Pushing Veronica is a band of youthful new blood rebellion and their latest single “Cancel Cult” cuts through the red tape of control and slashes the tires of authoritative regime. The story sung in “Cancel Cult” along with the visual overtures of A Clockwork Orange found in their video creates a surgent force that displays exactly where in the realm of castigated directives one can just jump. Let’s just hit the Ball Pit Rock button, shall we?
‘”Cancel Cult” is a sarcastic ode to the mass hysteria and hopeless permanence of cancel culture. We incorporated our alternative rock, pop punk, and emo influences from bands like My Chemical Romance, Badflower, and Green Day into this song with theatrical vocals, soaring horns, and anthemic chants. On this track, we laugh about Facebook flagging us just because of our band name and the implications of Alexa listening in on private moments, and we explore the existential dread of being alive today. Though we believe victims should be able to speak up and people should take responsibility for their actions, by declaring someone ‘over,’ our culture perpetuates hopelessness and robs the opportunity to learn from mistakes.”‘ – Pushing Veronica
