3:35 PM

Watch It Now on Noisey

New Album First Day Back To Be Released Feb. 19

Album Now Available For Pre-Order

Headline Tour with Petal and The Superweaks Kicks Off March 3

Somos has premiered a brand new song and music video for their song "Thorn in the Side."

Fans can see the video now exclusively on Noisey, here:

The video was filmed over the course of a day in Boston, MA an co-directed by Erik Rohas and Richie Duque.
The band said, "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 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 Feb. 19 on Hopeless Records.

The band also recently released an official music video for the song "Alright, I'll Wait," which can be seen here:

on Jan. 13 the band also announces their upcoming headline tour with support from Petal and The Superweaks.

The tour will kick off on March 3 in Cambridge, MA at the Middle East Upstairs.

Vocalist and bassist Michael Fiorentino said, "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).
