Florida’s Debt Neglector will be releasing a new album on November 5th. The full-length, entitled Dirty Water, will be released via Smartpunk Records and the band will be splitting 10% of the proceeds from physical record sales evenly between Flint Kids Fund and Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village (SBEV), which help youth affected by the dangerous levels of lead and toxins that was piped into their homes from the Flint River.
Today, we’re stoked to be premiering the new album in full ahead of its release.
Bandmember Alex Goldfarb had the following to say about the new album:
“I’ve been playing in various bands for a long time and I don’t think I’ve ever been prouder of something I’ve been a part of and released. But I’m not gonna lie, it’s a little nerve-wracking too. There are some political songs on here like usual (The world IS a shit show after all), but there’s also a LOT of personal stuff too. There are songs about my anxiety and how therapy saved me from falling completely apart. There’s a song about one family member getting sick and another one being toxic. And there are songs about fear and loss.
I tried to open up in a way that I hadn’t completely done before on an album, and when you put so much of yourself into something it can be a little scary. Musically, we really pushed the envelope of who we are as a band. There’s a couple ripping fast songs, some grungy stuff to bang your head to, and some super catchy ones too. I think the diversity we strived for makes it a pretty fun listen as you go from song to song.
We really gelled as a band this time around and had a better idea of what we were doing and who we wanted to be. Ultimately, I’m super proud of what we made, I love my bandmates to death, and I can’t wait for people to hear the whole thing!”
