Cali punks Partybaby have shared a heartbroken new reworking of ‘Overload’ in reaction to Donald Trump’s election.

The track, which bookends their phenomenal debut album ‘The Golden Age Of Bullshit’, takes on a desolate new form. “We let the newsmen birth a man who’s insane,” frontman Jamie Reed sighs, “and I can’t sleep with kids shot dead in the streets, and my own privilege right there screaming at me.” It’s a poignant reaction - “We woke up in a different world. Take care of each other, please,” they asked via Twitter.
