Published Feb 14, 2019Unofficially hailing from Welland, ON (officially hailing from "the propaganda arm of a shadowy international order), Dboy are making their message clear with their latest single "Dboy for President."
The track marks the band's first release since signing to Dine Alone, and in addition to getting a 7-inch release today, it's also been treated to a music video.
The band have released a characteristically bureaucratic message to accompany the new song. It reads:
"Dboy for President" is the single for the modern free world. It is a movement to validate the experiences of the Official Dboy Scouts Order as the experiences of a collective so long weighed down with the forces of sonic austerity. As a new era of aesthetic ingenuity begins, brought forward by the gloved hands of the three wolves, and the masked cheekbones of those who forged the fourth wall, it remains a constant reminder that Dboy have taken on the laborious task of developing novelty and shock, so you don't have to. Their first release on Dine Alone Records, and an extension of the thirteen point program set out in their official manifesto, it stands as a testament to the functioning of an entity riding the crest of a constant wave, and very much in total control.
The video, meanwhile, is a mockumentary that serves as an introduction to the band and their devoted following of "Scouts." It stars Spencer Burton as the on-camera host, who immediately gets captured — only to re-emerge in the midst of a live performance.
