Press ReleaseWe are excited to announce that Samiam has been busy in Green Day's studio, Jingletown with producer Chris Dugan recording their 8th studio album which will be released via Hopeless Records later this year. The band is also gearing up to perfom at KrazyFest later this month in Louisville, KY.

"I'm really happy that the band got together as a unit and came up with something we are all proud of. It was a real easy and fun to make."- Guitarist, Sergie Loobkoff

Hailing from Berkeley, CA. Samiam was first signed to Hopeless in 2000 who released the albums “Astray” and “Whatever’s Got You Down” and has toured with bands acts such as Bad Religion, Hot Water Music, Millencolin and Blink-182. Launching from the same late ‘80s do-it-yourself punk circles that spawned bands like Green Day, Samiam’s distinctive blend of melodic phrases atop a hardcore foundation found the band standing out from the typical fare of the time.

Neat, heard a lot of good things about this band, but sadly I haven't had the chance to check out much of their material. Whats a good album to start with from them?

It's a shame that most people don't know this band, they've been busting their asses since before I was born. They're a great great original emo band. love em', and can't wait for this album.

Definitely don't start with Astray, although it's a decent record. If anything, You Are Freaking Me Out is the only record that sounds big enough to capture their true sound. Soar and Clumsy are good too. Really, the only disappointing thing they've released is Whatever's Got You Down because the production was so god awful.

I like Astray and YAFMO about the same but Astray is definitely a little slicker. In order of accessibility I'd still say start with Astray first and then YAFMO, then Whatever's Got You Down followed by the old albums.
