Florida's Debt Neglector shared a video for the latest single "Least I Could Do" taken off the band's upcoming album on Smartpunk Records. It is a catchy, anthemic ripper that is a dedication to the death of a beloved dog. Although the backstory is personal to the band, the lyrics are written from a universally relatable perspective to honor and grieve the loss of a furry friend:
“Least I Could Do is a song about having to say goodbye to a beloved pet. Anyone who’s gone through that knows it’s such an impossible decision to make. It fucked me up pretty bad," says bassist/vocalist Alex Goldfarb. "But the last thing we wanted was for her to suffer on account of us not being ready to let go. I feel like writing a song about it kind of helped me process the experience better. It also let’s me honor her in a way because now all that love and pain exists on the internet forever (or at least until civilization collapses!). Admittedly, the song is a HUGE bummer but it’s energetic and super fun to play. It’s also something I think a lot of people can relate to. With the video, we wanted to balance out the sad vibes a bit so we got a little silly with our concept. I really like the juxtaposition of this super downhearted song but in the video, we’re dressed up like dogs playing frisbee, jumping in the pool, and acting like idiots.”
Album pre-orders are up now, and 10% of physical record sales will be split evenly between Flint Kids Fund and Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village (SBEV) "to help youth affected by the dangerous levels of lead and toxins that were piped into their homes from the Flint River."
