The Dollyrots have shared their punked up twist of the New Years’ classic track – Auld Lang Syne. The track finds The Dollyrots following on from previous Christmas tracks they have released and turning their attention to New Year.
As The Dollyrots’ vocalist and bassist Kelly Ogden explains, “We’ve done Christmas originals and covers, a Thanksgiving song… figured we should round it out with something to play at New Years. Usually when Auld Lang Syne comes on I feel a bit wistful… I mean maybe it’s the champagne but it’s also time to reflect on time passed and what we hope for the future. Hopefully, the future is bright and full of goodness, so we made our version reflect that! And put in a little request for all of us to be better to one another. Maybe this year we can feel happy and hopeful when we hear this version of a classic.”
The Dollyrots have also launched their annual holiday merch sale, The Twelve Days of Christmas with twelve consecutive days of merch giveaways and other prizes. Anyone who gets anything from their store is automatically entered to win a custom “Night Owls” guitar, made by Schecter.
The Dollyrots will stream their annual Christmas Family Sing-Along show worldwide on 23 December via Stageit.
