The band commented:

“What’s punk? Who’s punk? When was punk? They’ve sold out. It’s too metal. It’s too oi. They’re just pop punk. They’re too political. It’s too commercial. You’re too young to remember what punk was. You’re too old to understand what punk is. They’re just a goth band. Better than being a ska band. They’re all hypocrites … aaarrggh… make it stop. Here’s a thought, punk is just about having a load of great mates scattered to the four corners that see the world pretty much as you do. With a few exceptions, it’s a refuge from the misogyny, homophobia, racism, and social cleansing of the everyday world. It’s a refuge from UKIP, the EDL, Britain First, and all the other Islamophobic, anti-Semitic unpleasantness that seems to be gathering pace across Europe at the moment. And it’s a refuge with a great soundtrack. Most of all, it’s about knowing that whenever you meet up you can crank up the music, party, have a laugh, and be safe in the knowledge that you’re not in a room full of bigots and t***s … that’s the point. Here’s our video.”
