The highly influential punk/emo band Samiam have announced their first album in 12 years, Stowaway, due March 31 via Pure Noise (pre-order). The band--whose current lineup includes longtime members Jason Beebout (vocals), Sean Kennerly (guitar), and Sergie Loobkoff (guitar), along with newer additions Colin Brooks (drums) and Chad Darby (bass)--wrote the album over the course of nearly a decade and recorded it in multople studios, including Billie Joe Armstrong’s Otis Studio in Oakland and Savaria Studios in Brooklyn, where they tracked drums with Jon Markson (Drug Church, Koyo, etc). The album includes their 2021 single "Lights Out Little Hustler" (which features Hot Water Music's Chris Wollard), and the just-released "Crystallized," which you can check out below.

Samiam also have upcoming dates, including NYC's Brooklyn Made on April 19 with Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Rival Schools, etc) and 95 Bulls, and a run with their Pure Noise labelmates The Bouncing Souls. All dates are listed below.
