watch The Dirty Nil’s new video for “Done With Drugs”
Canadian punks The Dirty Nil released a new single, "Done With Drugs," last month, and we're now premiering the song's music video. As you'd probably expect from this band, it's a super catchy, anthemic dose of pop punk-tinged alt-rock, and they're as funny and charismatic in this video as they are on stage. "I don’t think I’ve ever laughed harder on the set of a video," said frontman Luke Bentham. "From Kyle’s karate moves, to the drone camera crashing through the warehouse and nearly killing us, this video captures the mayhem and spirit of our band in a special way."
And on the song's lyrical content, Luke adds:
At this time in my life, I see a lot of people who are trying to stop doing cocaine or stop drinking rivers of liquor, or stop eating lots of shitty fast food. On Facebook, I see these posts from people declaring, "I'm done with this!" — they'll have a six-paragraph post about how they're changing their lives. I'm definitely not against self-betterment, and I'm not trying to make light of anyone's struggle; I'm just kind of amused and fascinated by that whole aspect of social media. Like someone will post, "I'm done drinking coffee!" Okay, well then just stop drinking coffee — you don't have to try to stop the internet for the day to tell everybody that you're done with Maxwell House! I find that funny, and somewhat narcissistic. But that's just my opinion, and I'm kind of an asshole!
