Samiam have returned! The Oakland, CA punk legends recently announced, Stowaway, their first new album in 12 years and have now shared another single from the record, Monterey Canyon.
Monterey Canyon follows previous singles Crystallized and Lights Out, Little Hustler and provides another blast of crunchy guitars and massive hooks.
Guitarist Sean Kennerly discussed the lyrics of Monterey Canyon saying:
“This song is actually about parenting—octopus parenting that is. They recently discovered a deep sea octopus off the coast of California (in Monterey Canyon) who guards her brood of eggs without eating or leaving their side, nearly a mile beneath the surface, for a record 4 1/2 years—the longest known brooding period of any animal on earth. She basically just sits there guarding the eggs until they’re ready to hatch then she dies and floats off as they come to life. Is it a metaphor? Or an essentialization of the real sacrifices even human parents make in the chain of ongoing life? Or a kinda spooky ghost mom song about a deep sea octopus?”
Listen to Monterey Canyon below!
Stowaway is set for release 31st March and is available for pre-order HERE.
