by Abigail Charpentier - Oct 18, 2019

After just releasing their brand new track ‚ÄúGO GO',¬†Matt and Kim¬†surprise fans with another new single ‚ÄúMONEY‚ÄĚ (FADER Label). Written from the heart, ‚ÄúMONEY‚ÄĚ lays out the band's belief that happiness can often be found in the things that money can't buy. To that end,¬†the dog-loving duo took most of their video budget, donated it to the Animal Hope and Wellness animal shelter in L.A. and spent the day at the facility playing with the rescue dogs currently available for adoption. This is not Matt and Kim's first time shining a light on animals in need. Along their past tours, the band invited¬†local rescue agencies¬†to set up information tables in the venue lobby and¬†donated raffle money¬†from Matt and Kim merch to those local shelters. They were also advocates of PETA2's ‚ÄúAdopt Don't Shop‚ÄĚ campaign.
