Samiam Unveil Two New Tracks

Samiam will be releasing their eighth studio album, ‘Trips,’ on September 6 through Hopeless Records. In the meantime, listen below to two new tracks, “80 West” and “Dead,” which come from the indie rock act’s upcoming record.

In a press release, vocalist Jason Beebout explained the album title’s meaning: “[Samiam guitarist] Sean [Kennerly] saw a painting by Chris Johanson (who’s art we used for the album ‘Astray’) with the word ‘trips’ in it. That word really sums up what the record is about –- the journey of life through memories, obstacles, and places. Each trip is an adventure in itself and all a part of the whole adventure –- trippy.”

In support of ‘Trips,’ Samiam have booked a fall headlining tour. Walter Schreifels will be opening the North American leg of the tour, while punk rockers Off with Their Heads will be coming along for the European shows. Check out the tour dates below, and head over to their official website and Facebook page for more info.
