LA band The Paranoyds continue to capture the world's attention and this time it's with their thrilling new track 'Girlfriend Degree'. The release of the single also comes alongside news that the band is set to unleash their highly anticipated debut album Carnage Bargain on September 13th via Suicide Squeeze.

Their thrashing new single is a lifting and energetic track designed to fight against the unrealistic and unattainable standards society enforces on women. The band said that the song "is a call to arms, a reminder to be a supremely self-loving woman, to just do you. There’s all this pressure about being “the ideal woman,” and it’s easy to get caught up in that — to spend your time trying to be all these things that others think you should be."

They also noted, "Getting a “girlfriend degree” is about settling, selling oneself short and not believing in yourself—valuing your partner’s beliefs or opinions over your own. It’s cool to be a girlfriend or wife or whatever, but there’s so much more to being a woman than that."

The Paranoyds keep on impressing us and we're certain that their album is going to be just as good.
