The Party Garbage LP is a glitched transmission that follows the titular character, OC-666, after returning to their home planet from an undisclosed mission. While grateful to return home to their loved ones, the planet has become ravaged by greed, pollution, and excess, enabled by unsatiated despots and theocrats. Demons thrive in this milieu by selling and encouraging addiction to a drug known as Party Garbage, leading to unregulated mutation amongst the planet’s inhabitants. The lead single, Live Forever, Make it Better finds OC-666 rebounding from the pits of despair filled with hope and armed with a plan to save their imprisoned family inthecity, only to ultimately find themselves inthetrenches of all out war.
