SAMIAM Share New Song “Something”

SAMIAM Share New Song “Something
Taken From First New Album in 12 Years
Stowaway Out 31st March via Pure Noise Records
Pre-orders Available Now

Samiam are gearing up to release Stowaway, their first new album in 12 years, and today the Oakland, CA punk legends are sharing another single from the record, “Something.” Due out March 31st via Pure Noise Records, Stowaway picks up right where Samiam left off with all of the energy, melody, and pathos of their classic work, proving exactly why the group are still one of the most endearing and enduring punk bands of their generation.

Something” follows previous singles “Monterey Canyon,” “Crystallized” and “Lights Out, Little Hustler” (which have garnered attention from the likes of Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Exclaim, and more), and the uptempo new track wastes no time in providing the big guitars and big hooks that Samiam excel at.

Preorder Stowaway

Guitarist Sean Kennerly discussed the lyrics of Something saying: “The light perkiness of the music is belied by the heavy subject matter—searching for meaning and reason inside of everyday actions. It’s about faking it just to get through yet another ridiculous interaction you don’t feel like you belong in. The Buzzcocks-style hammering chords underpin Jason soaring vocals as he searches for an elusive feeling of relevance and purpose inside the everyday.”

From forming in the Oakland DIY punk scene in 1988, to eventually experiencing the major label alt rock feeding frenzy of the 1990s first hand, Samiam have experienced countless ups and downs in their 30+ years as a band. But their output has always remained incredibly consistent and Stowaway is no exception. Recorded piecemeal in different studios throughout the challenges of the past few years, the album reflects Samiam‘s knack for turning difficult circumstances into anthemic singalongs. Stowaway may reckon with time, failure, and frustration but in classic Samiam fashion, the hard luck stories are delivered via some of the band’s most energetic and hooky songs to date. “If you’re lucky, you get this sort of sense when you’re in a band that you’re participating in something that’s important to other people,” explains guitarist Sergie Loobkoff. “And I still get that with Samiam.” Stowaway might have been over a decade in the making, but it was well worth the wait.
