Today, Punknews is excited to debut the new video by Dollar Signs!
"Punk on the Weekend" is frikkin hilarious. In the video, frontman Erik Button finds himself trapped in the straight-job world when suddenly, he is haunted by that dreadful apparition known as "the 9 to 5." Watch as he fights for his life and tries to avoid becoming a cog in the machine. The whole chase is backed by Dollar Signs' wonderfully scrappy brand of pop-punk that seems to be in a state of constant collapse. There is also a nice KISS reference. Is it out of genuine appreciation or sardonic irony? You decide!
Speaking to Punknews about the track, Button said, ""The song is about trying to continue to go to shows and do punk shit as you get older. Saying that even GG Allin had a full time job. Talking about the Misfits' Instagram. So you can be punk on the weekend and then regret all of your decisions come Monday."
The tune is off their upcoming EP, Life is Ruff. That's out March 28 via Possum Heart Records. Pre-order that right here and then check out the new vid below, right now!
