Orlando's Debt Neglector are proud to release their newest single, "New White Roses".

The band had this to say about the single:

"New White Roses is probably the most melodic song on the record, but it's also kind of melancholy sounding. We were shooting for more of a sappy sounding Descendants vibe and this is what came out. The Descendents are often imitated but very rarely replicated because they're just all virtuosos at their instruments and brilliant song writers and we're all not worthy to be in their presence to be honest. But we tried. This one was also my attempt at having something positive to say for once in a Debt Neglector song. Our last record (and most of this one) is  very doom and gloom. But hey, the world kinda sucks. The White Roses were this amazing group of students and a teacher that were activists in Germany during World War II. They risked their lives to pass out leaflets and spray graffiti that countered the Nazi regime. They called for opposition to what was happening in Germany and abroad tried to rally people to resist them. I thought they had a fascinating story and thought about people today that I admire that carry on that legacy of resistance. The song turned into a shout out of sorts to bands like Strike Anywhere, Paint it Black, and Anti-Flag that have gone out there and tried to get young people turned on to thinking and acting politically. It's also a shout-out to journalists like Shaun King that go out there every day to expose injustice and abuse in our country and beyond."

The song is taken off of the band's upcoming EP The Kids are Pissed due out October 26th via Smartpunk Records. Fans that pre-order the EP are automatically entered to win (2) tickets to the forthcoming FEST, which takes place this October.
