DOWNLOAD: Somos - Dead Wrong (MP3)


With the accessibility of music on the internet, not many bands really need to make "demos" anymore, but that didn't stop Boston's Somos from calling these four songs recorded in 2012 a demo. Some nerve of them too, considering the sharp hooks and sharper musicianship that went into these songs would put tons of "actual albums" to shame.

I wrote the above on BV Chicago regarding Boston rockers Somos, who will release their debut LP, Temple of Plenty, on March 25 via Tiny Engines (Little Big League, Cayetana, The Hotelier), which follows their 2012 demo. They just put out that album's first single, "Dead Wrong," which keeps hopes pretty high that this album will deliver. It packs a major punch, with crunchy guitar bursting out of its skin and more than enough parts you can sing along to. Grab a free MP3 of the track above, or stream it, along with the LP artwork and tracklist, below.

Somos will also be touring this year, and though there's no stops in NYC, they'll hit plenty of other venues in the surrounding Northeast area so you won't have to go too far if you want to catch them. The tour stops in NJ, Philly, Albany, Long Island, and other cities, all of which are listed below...
