The So So Glos are a rare breed. A band fighting apathy, a band intent on distracting and inspiring a generation away from their phones and their screens, dragging them out onto the street, dancing, fucking and fighting for a future. Are you ready to testify?
The New York rockers are gearing up to release to the UK, their highly anticipated and critically acclaimed new album, “Kamikaze”, on 25th November via Votiv Music.
Recorded with John Reis (Drive Like Jehu, Hot Snakes) and mixed by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Cursive), “Kamikaze” features some of the Glos’ rawest songwriting yet that includes themes surrounding heartbreak, hurricanes, feminism, climate change, nervous breakdowns and more. There’s a glimpse into one band member’s stay at an inpatient mental rehabilitation center (“Inpatient”), songs about feeling disillusioned by the concept of moral compromise, the dungeon that is the music business (“Fool On the Street”), and songs about sticking to your missions (“Missionary”).
With radio plays on Radio 1, Radio X, and K! Radio, and rave album reviews, the band tackle the very real problems of a world permanently glued to computers, phones and social media.
