Ontario’s Dboy have shared their new double-single, “Why Do You Only Luv a Dboy (who’s down)? / Thumbless”, along with an official video. A rip-roaring, aural assault from the gimp-masked and satin clad punks, the single is the opening one-two punch from their new album, New Records In Human Power, out February 14th on Dine Alone Records.
On the single, the band said
“CITIZENS OF THE WORLD. WITH PERMISSION FROM THE PERFORMANCE AND RECREATION COUNCIL, DBOY PRESENTS ‘WHY DO YOU ONLY LUV A DBOY (WHO’S DOWN)?’ AND ‘THUMBLESS’. AS EXPRESSIONS OF BREVITY AND AESTHETIC INGENUITY, THE TRACKS ARE CELEBRATIONS OF THE 13 POINT PROGRAM TO END SONIC AUSTERITY, AND THEREFORE OF THE THREE WOLVES THEMSELVES. SUCH SHORT PLAYS FOR THE PACE AGE CAN BE FOUND ON THE FORTHCOMING ALBUM, APTLY TITLED ‘NEW RECORDS IN HUMAN POWER’. AS THE FAT HAS BEEN SO CLEARLY CUT FROM THE BONE, ALL THAT REMAINS ARE DENSE SHAPES AND SOUNDS WHICH MOVE TOWARDS A NEW LANGUAGE OF LUV. NOW, SPEAK IT WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF DBOY SCOUTS.”
The band also released details of the first-ever ‘Dboy Powerline’, a 1-800 number providing information on their manifesto, their tour dates, the meaning behind their record and your chance to leave Dboy a message. You can reach it at 1-800-851-9383. The band will be touring throughout Canada in support of the release, supporting Cancer Bats along the way. Full dates are below, along with the band’s manifesto.
