Clay J just cannot miss. This track is SO damn good. It's very very hard to walk that fine line between a song you can mosh to and a song you can dance to, but Clay J make it seem so easy. Loving the cowbell.

this one rattles and sizzles and could bring hibernating bears out to play.

Listening through to this again trying to pinpoint the perfect reference for the sound. It feels like a bunch of your different faves...y'know what, I'm gonna stop. It's just too much fun to spend my time analysing the track when I should just be shaking along with it. A hefty dance rock caterwaul from this band with untapped reserves of energy.

This track is like if MCR had a baby with Touche Amore. Definitely worth getting around!

OMFG no I don't think you understand, this song just astral-planed me back to MCR's Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge era. Your raspy vocal tone, those quirky dialogue bits squeezed in between ripping guitars and super tight drums - IT'S EVERYTHING!!

Much like the chain-attached velcro wallet I'm rocking for this classic punk vibe - it rips!

Even though he said not to, I'm going to say I'm sorry because I'm a punk and you can't tell me what to do; but I can tell you what to do and that is listen to this song right now!

The one shining bright light in the drudgery of lockdown.

IMO the most catchy chorus since "What a Feeling" by Irene Cara

A relentless onslaught of emo punk energy. No build up, you are immediately smacked in the face with the blistering lead guitar hook, then within 10 seconds the angsty verse lyrics have kicked in. Every chorus these guys write is an absolute anthem and this song is no exception, but with Dead Friends even the pre-chorus will blow you away.

Every chorus these guys write is an absolute anthem and this song is no exception, but with Dead Friends even the pre-chorus will blow you away.

Some new ideas from Clay J stand out here, with the alternating lead vocals in the second verse, a chorus filled out with tasty bass lines, and a big evil bridge combining swagger and spookiness.
