"Mr. Derailer" is the third single from The Dirty Jacks upcoming EP, All Part Of The Plan. It's a catchy indie/alt/prog-rock summer jam about the trials and tribulations of moving forward in life and reaching new plateaus while putting aside the things you can't control. It's an anthem for shrugging off excuses like "easier said than done" and replacing them with a clear and concise effort; "easier said? - easier done!"
