Dead Bars – “Pink Drink”

Seattle’s Dead Bars make upbeat, pop-leaning punk tunes. The band, conceptualized by East Coast drummers John Maiello and C.J. Frederick, have a sophomore album on the way called Regulars. Today, they’re sharing a new single from the album called “Pink Drink.”

“Pink Drink” cryptically invokes the title as something that can get the narrator out of a rut of arrested development. “Growin up, yeah I’m growin’ up/ But I just threw up/ No more brown liquor in my cup/ Pink drink, give me a pink drink.”

For Regulars, Maiello called on Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden) to oversee production duties. When Maiello first sent some songs over, Endino replied that “[They have] a good pop hook with a bunch of bashing and screaming over it; what’s not to like?”

Put Endino’s proposition to the test below.
