The wait is OVER! Hot Mulligan‘s brand new album Why Would I Watch is finally out in the world for everyone’s audible pleasures. Released via independent label Wax Bodega, their latest effort finds Hot Mulligan at their poppiest, loudest and most anthemic yet. They’ve managed to hone the different style choices from their previous releases into a perfect concoction of pop, punk, rock and emo on this album. The band have highlighted the track “No Shoes in the Coffee Shop (or Socks)” as the release day single with a lovely music video to accompany it. Check out what the group had to say about the new track below.
“’No Shoes” is about that “physical recoil” level of regret you feel when you think about the past,” explains vocalist Tades Sanville on the song. “Like when you didn’t stand up for a friend, or said something you didn’t mean, or when you were the sole reason that plan was ruined. I don’t wanna buy the camera because I don’t want to look at my past. It keeps me up, and makes me feel worse about myself. So ‘why would I watch’?”
