Playboy Manbaby New Singles "You Can Be A Fascist Too"/ “I’d Like To Meet Your Parents,”

Playboy Manbaby is the contradictory soundtrack to the contemporary life experience. Grimly sarcastic yet youthfully nihilistic music that seems to crash into things with a semi-coherent deliberation that can only be generated by a group of frail but over-caffeinated and eternally anxious young adults. Playboy Manbaby is the theme song to the sentiment “what the fuck am I doing with my life?” Indecisive in both message and genre but never lacking in sheer intensity.

The group hail from Phoenix, Arizona and consist of Robbie Pfeffer (vocals), Chris Hudson (bass), TJ Friga (guitar), David Cosme (trumpet), Chad Dennis (drums), and Austin Rickert (sax). Having been a regional powerhouse for over five years with two previously released cassette albums on their own Rubber Brothers label, these lads have have shared the stage with the likes of: Mike Watt & The Missing Men, King Khan & BBQ Show, King Khan & The Shrines, Rocket From The Crypt, Thee Oh Sees, Cosmonauts, The Spits, Black Flag, The Descendents, The Replacements, The Slackers, Teenage Bottlerocket, amongst countless others.

After having just wrapped up the mastering of their long overdue new LP "Don't Let It Be", these desert area DIY-veterans have just released the first single off the album,"You Can Be A Fascist Too" in honor of the new US President. Singer Robbie Pfeffer explains, "we feel like every societal catastrophe deserves a proper theme song."
On the B side and in their latest music video “I’d Like To Meet Your Parents,” viewers are forced to watch two lovebirds looking to enjoy a night out at a place presumably called Crapriotti’s or La Doo Doo which serves only the best Rasberry Creme Shasta and Spaghetti ala Ketchup.

“We shot this video in my living room and tried to make it a terrible Italian restaurant,” says Playboy frontman Robbie Pfeffer. “I wanted to make a video where the band is playing but aren’t really an important or central part of it. I didn’t tell the guys what the idea was, I just told them to show up at a certain time and then started yelling at them to paint their faces etc. I’m super glad how it turned out and I think everyone did a great job embracing their characters.”

"THIS NIGHT WAS NUTS! We played to a sold out crowd at Valley Bar with our friends Treasure Mammal and Sonoran Chorus. The whole night was surreal. We had costume changes, an intermission, people running around with cameras. I don't think we've ever played a set this long before but somehow the night just went by so fast. This video SERIOUSLY could not have turned out so well without really amazing people helping us. So thank you to Ryan Riggs, James Johnson, Tyler Huffman, Spike Mitchell and everyone at Valley Bar."
