An explanation of the song from their myspace blog:
ABOUT THE NEW SONG...
I know i just posted saying something about putting up a preview to the ep.... this isn't it.... not by a long shot. As i said before the ep is acoustic and yes, we'll still be posting that preview as promised at the first of March. This new song is one some of you may have heard if you came to see us play last year. Its a first wave recording of a song called "Cool Kids" that will be tracked for our next full length once we hit the studio again.
I was recently asked, "If the ep is acoustic and it doesn't reflect the next full length then what the hell is that full length gonna sound like?"... Well, this is it... the tip of one mean ass rock and roll iceberg.
On a final note, the reason for posting this song is because the good people at Wonka have chosen to include this song in a really great promotion... we'll dedicate another blog to that very soon with more info.
