MOD SUN has shared a huge new single, Rich Kids Ruin Everything.

Discussing the meaning of the track – which features sarcastic lyrics like, 'I saw your new TikTok, oh my god you’re so punk rock' – the musician explains: “I grew up a scene kid, I grew up a skateboarder and a pop-punk kid and I used to get made fun of for being all of those, for the way I looked, the way I dressed, for the way I acted and all the things love and it’s both awesome and hilarious, yet confusing seeing the general public and pop culture embracing all the things that I would get torn down for. This is a song that I wrote for all the kids that feel confident in their own skin and don’t walk around wearing a costume.

“Everything now is about trends," he continues. "If it keeps going this way and getting championed then eventually originality will be a lost art. I’m trying to let people know that there’s more to this world than what’s currently popular. I want kids to feel like it’s important to be visionaries not followers."

Last month, MOD SUN premiered a YouTube documentary, Remember Me Just Like This, all about his life.

“This documentary shows all the ups and downs of my journey,” he revealed. “I came from a place where no-one told me I was going to make it but I never gave up. I always treated myself like what I was doing was special and most of all important. I believed in me before anyone else did and because of that I'm here today. It talks about my family life which was very difficult but I know so many can relate to the struggles that come with imperfection. I'm proud to show my transformation from drug addict to now being almost three years sober because I know so many people can take something from it. Life can be hard but the present is a gift and this documentary is a celebration of that.”
