“Things I Hate” follows the Paris Brosnan-directed music videos for their songs “Messing With Fire” and “Are We There Yet.” And if you didn’t know, Dylan Jagger Lee is the son of Mötley Crüe‘s Tommy Lee!

“The concept of the song is kind of an ode to LA nightlife. An ode that in a way s–ts on LA’s occasional bad reputation with going out, partying, drug use, and any bad temptations that occur while doing so,” the duo said of the new song.

“We all have been there at some point I’m sure. Many people would easily repeat it all over again the next day, or next weekend. You see that a lot in LA, NY, Miami, or wherever nightlife culture is a big thing. It can be hard to avoid it.”
