For everyone who has an evil genius ex…

What’s the worst revenge that your ex can pull on you? Getting a job at your local bar. Not only does this mess up your liquor diet, but imagine all the shitty talk they’ll spread to your potential mates within your radius. The Bottom Line’s “I Still Hate You” is a punk piece that addresses the hell, absurdity and fun (let’s face it…if you’re the bystander, this is schadenfreude at its best) that comes with psycho exes. With the classic explosiveness of punk beats and buoyant rhythmic structure, “I Still Hate You” emits an infectiously vibrant energy that takes you on a comic roller-coaster that some of us – unfortunately – can relate with. Flush out or laugh at the pain:

“‘I Still Hate You’ is pretty self explanatory, we’ve all been there before. We rush into a relationship with someone we think is perfect, it becomes toxic and everything falls apart, pretty damn quickly…But on this particular occasion I remember the repercussions becoming really sour – the person egged my car and got a job at my local bar to make my life hell. So I felt like the only thing that was left to do was to write a completely obvious song about them, with a VERY to the point meaning! The song is super relatable and really connected with our fans quickly.” shared frontman Callum Amies.

The track is from the band’s recent EP, I Still Hate You, which came out on January 12th of this year. The Bottom Line formed back in 2011 and have become one of the pioneers of UK pop punk scene. Bringing their own twist to old school punk, The Bottom Line has built a wide fanbase internationally and have toured alongside other bands like Simple Plan.
