The whimsical and cheeky pop-punk outfit, Not My Weekend have returned today with a brand new music video for their track “OVERLOAD” featuring Josh Roberts of the beloved, Magnolia Park. This tune comes as the fifth single from their third studio album SHIMMER.SEASON out today! “OVERLOAD” follows singles, “SHUT.UP“, “HURRICANE.WEATHER“, “OTHERSIDE.(BREAK.UP.SONG)” and “KNOCK.ME.OUT” featuring Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens. The new record is arguably Not My Weekend’s best work to date, honing in on the best parts of their song writing and delivery. Even the album’s b-sides shine, such as “AMERICAN.DREAM” and “HELL(SEND.ME.DOWN)“. The stand out track is definitely “LIGHTNING” which features Brian Butcher of The Home Team.

Speaking on the new track, frontman Patrick Gilchrist shares, “Writing ‘OVERLOAD’ was some of the most fun I had working on the album. Our producer and my best friend, Jared Gaines(Rat Park/Vaines) had taught me a chord shape I had never used before and the next day I wrote the main riff for OVERLOAD and sent it to him. He loved it so much he sent me back the full instrumental done and we locked ourselves in his house until we had a chorus we loved.”

He continues, “To me, conceptually, the song is about re-evaluating yourself and realizing you’ll need to deconstruct who you are as a person in order to pull yourself out of a funk, or depression, or just improve as an individual. It’s something I feel a lot from others and myself in 2023, but I also hope people draw different interpretations and feelings from the tune!”

The band also spoke on what it was like to collaborate with Magnolia Park frontman,“Working with Josh was very fun! Watching the Mag Park dudes grow over the past couple years has been really inspiring and I really wanted our album to include a few features to help celebrate our friends and the state of the “scene” right now. It’s so cool that bands can grow on social media, or from touring, or from radio plays, or all of the above! There’s so much opportunity and community! I’m also very stoked our schedules lined up that he could be in the music video. It’s my favorite one I’ve made for NMW!”

“I love what Josh wrote for his verse so much because it’s so him without deviating from the context of the song. I’m way too much of a normy to say all the cool vampire stuff he does and it adds a whole other element to the song in addition to his voice!”
