Dirtbag Republic Releases New Single, “Days Are Gone”

Dirtbag Republic release the second video from their upcoming full-length album, Tear Down Your Idols today.  “Days are Gone” was shot, directed and edited by top Canadian filmmaker Matt Leaf (The Devil You Know, Beer Money, the documentary Backroad Truckers and more) and shot at the famed Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC and features the band in a mock live performance.

“Days are Gone” is an autobiographical look back into frontman Sandy Hazard’s debaucherous junior high school days. “”It’s actually about me and a group of friends I hung out with in junior high and looking back at those days all these years later.”  Sticking with the punk and roll aesthetic that they championed on their previous single, “Wannabes” as well as the entirety of Tear Down Your Idols and their previous two releases, the Canucks marry Finnish heroes Hanoi Rocks with Cleveland legends Dead Boys and the result is a pleasantly raucous, energetic fireball of a track with a hook as wide as the Pacific Ocean for a chorus.
