Mannequin Pussy just announced that Patience, the Philly four-piece’s third full-length and Epitaph Records debut, will be released June 21. The forthcoming album’s lead single “Drunk II” is out now, along with a video directed by singer-guitarist Marisa Dabice.

“Drunk II” is a song about overcoming heartache, and its video explores the feeling of loneliness in a crowd as it follows Dabice on an emotionally wrought night out with her bandmates as she tries to hide the pain she’s feeling under the glittery sheen of the bar.

Dabice shared in a press release:

“It’s too easy now to look back on that song and feel a mixture of pity and disgust for myself and the emotions I poured into it. I never saw a breakup as anything other than emotional torture. But now, I understand that a breakup is a gift. Heartbreak is a gift. Someone leaving your life when you don’t expect them to is one of the most honest things we can experience. By electing to leave your life someone is telling you their truth: that they can’t be there for you the way you wish they could. That they can’t love you the way that you loved them. It took me a long time to realize that it is better to be alone than to be with someone who doesn’t really want to be there. You should never have to convince someone to love you. At the end of the song when I sing ‘Everyone gather round, I have the answer now’ – that is what I’m saying.”

Patience is the follow-up to Mannequin Pussy’s 2016 album Romantic. You can pre-order it here, and find more information on the band’s upcoming show in Jersey City on the XPN Concert Calendar.
