Smash Mouth Finally Get into the EDM Game with New Single

BY Josiah HughesPublished Jul 25, 2016

Timeless Shrek rock gods Smash Mouth recently professed their love for Brooklyn janglers Parquet Courts, so one might expect the band to issue some new, experimental garage rock. Proving they truly can't be categorized, however, the group have instead opted to go the EDM route.

Called "Love Is a Soldier," the song appears to be a collaboration with a DJ named Specter. While it opens with the prerequisite bass fuzz, four-on-the-floor beat and Steve Harwell's signature vocal stylings, the track eventually builds to an EDM climax for its chorus.

The song's lyrics are also here via a lyric video, so you'll be able to sing along with melodic poetry like, "Sex is a gun / You're ammunition / The battle's on / Submission demolition."
