Dollar signs new release, out Friday

Charlotte’s own Dollar Signs are dropping a hyped up, promising record this Friday via AF records. According to the band, in an emotional and realistic way, the record is “ABOUT CRYING, AND DRINKING, AND WEDDINGS, AND WORKING, AND THE DEVIL.” So, like, we already love it. If “Waste My Life Away” is anything to go by, we are MORE THAN READY TO CRY AND DRINK AND GET MARRIED AND MAYBE HANG WITH THE DEVIL. Luv – Sheila
