Somos premieres new song from upcoming album, First Day Back

Somos (Web)

Somos has premiered a brand new song and music video for their song “Thorn in the Side” today. Fans can see the video now exclusively on Noisey, here: hyperurl.co/SomosThorn.

The video was filmed over the course of a day in Boston, MA an co-directed by Erik Rohas and Richie Duque. On the song, the band explains, “The lyrics address the way in which almost all aspects of our daily lives have been monetized under neoliberalism. We are all encouraged to think of ourselves as budding entrepreneurs, each one of us individually clawing our ways towards success. This line of thinking is often accompanied by exhortations to “stay positive” and “don’t complain.” The end result are people ending up feeling alienated and isolated.

The song is taken from the band’s highly anticipated upcoming album First Day Back, which will be released on February 19th, 2016 on Hopeless Records. The band also recently released an official music video for the song “Alright, I’ll Wait”, which can be seen here: https://smarturl.it/AlrightIllWait.

First Day Back is now available for digital pre-order here: https://smarturl.it/FirstDayBack.

Fans who pre-order digitally will receive “Alright, I’ll Wait” as an instant grat download.

Reflecting on the new release, vocalist and bassist Michael Fiorentino explains, “We are very proud of ‘First Day Back’. Musically, I think it represents a step forward and highlights a number of new influences and styles. In terms of lyrics, I attempted to incorporate themes of alienation and struggle but also resistance and resilience. We live in trying times, but it’s important to keep in mind that the immense challenges we face as a society exist alongside green shoots of hope. This record is dedicated to all revolutionaries and freedom fighters the world over.

Formed in 2012 in Boston, MA, Somos consists of Michael Fiorentino (vocals/bass), Phil Haggerty (guitar), Justin Hahn (guitar), and Evan Deges (drums). Since the release of their debut album Temple of Plenty in 2014, the east coast band has been featured with Pitchfork, Noisey, The Boston Globe, and more. ADVT
