Brooklyn punks The So So Glos were one of our favorite bands from this year’s CMJ Conference, and they’re one of a handful of bands who are getting exposure and praise in a purely organic way. Their upcoming album, Blowout!, is one of the albums that we’re most excited to hear this year, and the band were awesome enough to share the first track off of the album, “Son Of An American.”
The new video for “Son Of An American,” airing on Rolling Stone‘s website, is an amalgamation of old VHS footage showing the band in their younger years, as well as footage of the band playing now. It goes hand in hand with the tone of the lyrics, which look back on a life spent on cheap thrills and simple pleasures without a hint of regret.
Blowout comes out on April 23rd via Shea Stadium Records. You can watch the video for “Son Of An American” at Rolling Stone‘s website here.
