Skating Polly have released a video for their new single Hollywood Factory.

It’s the latest track taken from the trio’s upcoming album The Make It All Show, with the band previously sharing a video for Queen For A Day which featured guest vocals from X’s Exene Cervenka.

Skating Polly’s Kelli Mayo says: “We first wrote Hollywood Factory after I filmed a pilot for a TV show and the possibility of it getting picked up was all I could think about for a while. 

“The lyrics were meant to poke fun at the idea of going to Hollywood and selling out – or at least trying to sell out if Hollywood will have you. 

“Anyway, it didn't get picked up and we kinda swept the song under the rug with it, but right before we went in to record the album, we decided to work on it again, this time with Kurtis Mayo on board as our third member. 

She adds: “We made the lyrics darker at some points and just more sarcastic overall. Despite the sarcasm, It's probably the most poppy song on the record and the most cheerful one for sure!”

The Make It All Show will launch on May 11 via El Camino Media.

Skating Polly are currently on tour with Charly Bliss and Potty Mouth across North America.
