Ellen and the Degenerates last released music in February of 2019, with their LP entitled Return of the Herb. Later that year, the band called it quits. Then they got back together… kind of. And now they’ve described their status as “semi-retired and doing whatever we want!”
While there’s no new music, Elena Barrio (lead vocals) and Samantha Campanile (of Answering Machine, Sadlands) got together to create a music video for “Not My Friend”, the first single from Return of the Herb. This video is about badminton, feuding, diet coke, fun hats… and friendship!
Check out the video for “Not My Friend” below and keep checking back for more from Ellen and the Degenerates as they navigate semi-retirement!
I am so incredibly stoked to have some (kind of) new Ellen & the Degenerenerates (IYKYK) content! I will take what I can get, and this music video is what I’ve got. Next on my list is to try and bribe them to play a show in Seattle. Check ’em out to see why both Kendra & I have big ol’ crushes on Ellen and the Degenerates! – Erin
