TSOL release video for cover of Amerie’s “1 Thing”

Southern California punk legends TSOL have released a video for their surprising cover of Amerie’s 2005 hit “1 Thing”. Frontman Jack Grisham says, “I like go-go music and soul and anything that really moves. I first heard Amerie’s “1 Thing” in 2005, when it was released. Fucking infectious man, the way that groove keeps rolling, and she’s such a great vocalist. The lyrics were your basic relationship trip but then it hit me, this isn’t just a song about some dude, these lyrics read like a song to a system or a government that’d been up to no good. When she sang, “memories keep ringing bells” I was thinking of the state of our union today, the turmoil in our society, and where we’d been before—I was musing on our involvement in the Middle East, Latin America, Vietnam. I was thinking about the dirty deeds that this nation had been up to and then she sang, “why don’t you just admit it” and I realized that no one in power, not in this country, was ever gonna admit that we were wrong.”

You can check out the rousing cover below as well as some tour dates.

The new song will be available on 12″ single. This is the first new music from TSOL since the release of Live At The Observatory last year. You can order the upcoming single here.
