The “Noisy Joisey” band Doc Rotten are back with a music video for the boots-and-booze rocker, “Sick & Suffering.” The song is the title track from their latest EP and calls attention to the opioid crisis plaguing the nation, particularly in their poverty-stricken backyard of Trenton.
“This song is about trying to help people with addictions of any kind and realizing you can only TRY to help,” says vocalist/guitarist Wes Bentley. “The hard part is always up to them.“
Fired up by their love for ‘77 punk, the trio released the EP Sick & Suffering last March and received 4.5/5 stars in Punknews.org. Doc Rotten will be touring the East Coast for the next two months before heading to Japan in September.
Sick & Suffering is available now on Spotify.
