Punk band The Venomous Pinks gave audiences another preview of its new album this week.

The band debuted its new single, ‘Apothecary Ailment‘ and its companion video Thursday. The song and its video are the latest from the band’s forthcoming album, Vita Mors, which is scheduled for release June 3 through SBAM Records. The band debuted the record’s debut single, ‘No Rules‘ and its video last month.

The Venomous Pinks’ debut album is preceded by its EP, I Want You, which was released in 2020. The record produced the single, ‘I Really Don’t Care‘.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Apothecary Ailment’ is another straight forward, guitar-driven surf/skate punk style composition from the band. It will appeal easily to fans of the likes of Pennywise, Counterpunch, and Chaser what with that familiar sound and style.

Singer/guitarist Drea Doll talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“‘Apothecary Ailment’ is a track about how consuming the cycle of addiction can be,” Doll said. “I witnessed someone close to me struggle with severe addiction. It was a matter of life or death. The lyrics are a plea for them to choose life. I’ve had my own personal battles over the years, and facing one’s demons is never easy.

The video for the band’s new single finds the band out in the desert, performing its new single as the sun sets.

Doll talked about the presentation in her statement.

“For the video, we escape to the beautiful landscape near the lost Dutchman park in Apache Junction, AZ. Since this is our first album, it was important for us to show the world our roots and where we grew up.”
