"In this current climate of pop-punk rejuvenation, the song is a satire on the “outcast” image."
Ricky Himself has dropped a brand new song, and it's a brilliantly scathing takedown of a culture about to eat itself.
'I Know You Like Black Flag' finds Ricky musing on the state of a scene that is being infiltrated by the mainstream and losing the essence of what made it so special in the first place over a slow-burning instrumental.
Here's what he had to say about it all.
"In this current climate of pop-punk rejuvenation, the song is a satire on the “outcast” image. Artists have all defaulted to loud fashion statements and dying their hair an interesting color and the “punks” are Instagram models now, Unknowingly becoming the thing that the pop-punk bands we grew up on made fun of in their heyday."

The track comes hot on the heels of a pair of tracks released last year.
