Pop-Punk duo The Dollyrots have released “Still Holding On” in the US with a new accompanying lyric video. In February 2023, the band toured the UK with an exclusive UK-only early release of “Still Holding On” via Wicked Cool Records. The track takes on the strangeness of the world, but not alone, finding optimism in those we can lean on.

Kelly Ogden explains:

“Still Holding On” is a standalone single pulled from our newest recordings, from the first full album sessions since 2019! A hint of the flavor of the upcoming full-length album to be released this Fall. It’s a song about counting on the people you love to get you through the strangeness of modern life. The lyric video features an AI generated version of me, a digital reminder of how off-kilter the Future is becoming.

In March they released the 7-inch single “Hey Girl”, which was co-produced with Stevie Van Zandt at his Renegade Studios in NYC, with Geoff Sanoff Engineering. The B-Side “I Touch Myself”, a cover of the Divinyls 1990 hit, was co-produced by longtime collaborator John Fields (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Meet Me At the Altar), who is responsible for the bulk of production credit on the upcoming full-length LP due out this fall.

The band will be bringing their live party on the road with summer tours planned in both the South and the West Coast with support by friends Don’t Panic and Dog Party. This Fall the band will also embark on a co-headlining run with Tsunami Bomb, including a September 1st pitstop at the 3rd annual Camp Punksylvania Music & Camping Festival at the Circle Drive-In Theater in Pennsylvania. More dates are being confirmed and TBA, with a full list below.
