Dboy have shared the video for their new double-single, Why Do You Only Luv a Dboy (who’s down)? / Thumbless. The track is a rip-roaring, aural assault from the gimp-masked and satin clad punks, and it’s the opening one-two punch from their new album, ‘New Records In Human Power,’ out February 14th via Dine Alone Records. Watch the Why Do You Only Luv a Dboy (who’s down)? / Thumbless video via YouTube below.
On the single, the band said “CITIZENS OF THE WORLD. WITH PERMISSION FROM THE PERFORMANCE AND RECREATION COUNCIL, DBOY PRESENTS ‘WHY DO YOU ONLY LUV A DBOY (WHO’S DOWN)?’ AND ‘THUMBLESS’. AS EXPRESSIONS OF BREVITY AND AESTHETIC INGENUITY, THE TRACKS ARE CELEBRATIONS OF THE 13 POINT PROGRAM TO END SONIC AUSTERITY, AND THEREFORE OF THE THREE WOLVES THEMSELVES. SUCH SHORT PLAYS FOR THE PACE AGE CAN BE FOUND ON THE FORTHCOMING ALBUM, APTLY TITLED ‘NEW RECORDS IN HUMAN POWER’. AS THE FAT HAS BEEN SO CLEARLY CUT FROM THE BONE, ALL THAT REMAINS ARE DENSE SHAPES AND SOUNDS WHICH MOVE TOWARDS A NEW LANGUAGE OF LUV. NOW, SPEAK IT WITH THE INTERNATIONAL ORDER OF DBOY SCOUTS.”
The band also released details of the first ever ‘Dboy Powerline’, a 1-800 number providing information on their manifesto, their tour dates, the meaning behind their record and your chance to leave Dboy a message. You can reach it at 1-800-851-9383.

Dboy are preparing the release of their second full-length record – a relentless, rollicking assault. ‘New Records in Human Power’ doesn’t stop for a breath as Dboy crash and burn their way through 17 minutes of blistering punk.
Spurred on by the international and collective arm of the ever-expanding Order of Dboy Scouts, and in reaction to the steady and systematic degradation of aestheticism and inauthenticity, Dboy continue to deny the boredom and light of the four minute song. Instead, the collective opts to present short plays for the pace age. As has become the norm, Dboy’s aesthetic existentialism is at the centre of all, bringing flavour to bleak climes and texture to broken canvases. However, this is not to push towards any need for explanation. Instead, ‘New Records in Human Power’ holds the non-sequitor high above all else, and leaves nothing on the table. In twelve songs, and under twenty minutes, Dboy accomplish what so few bands can: the end of creative comatose, and a new, necessary standard.
