California punks Dad Brains have returned with a new coloured 7″ EP, Dadditde, out on June 14th via Pirates Press Records, and from it the band have released a new video for lead track ‘Fathers Day’.
Of the track, frontman Pat Pedraza says “I’ve never heard of a Fathers Day song in my life, so I was like, hey, we might actually do something original???? Hahahaha. As most of us know, it’s kinda challenging to be original nowadays. I couldn’t ask for anything more with this video and the fun we had shooting it. Families, friends, and kids getting together, kids playing instruments, getting food and water balloons launched at us, and a 20-year-old with a camera filming it…This was the highlight of my musical career so far!!!!
It’s classic punk rock in the Rancid sort of mould, with roaring guitar noise and this throbbing bass propelling everything onward. The attitude and rough edges are smoothed out by the instantly catchy melodies, which leave you just about unable not to air guitar / chair pogo (I may have invented the latter). Fun times.
‘Dadditude’ is out on June 14. The 4 track EP will be available digitally via all DSPs on June 7th. Pre order at: https://shop.piratespressrecords.com/.
