TSOL have announced a new 12" single, a cover of "1 Thing," originally by Amerie. The vinyl release is limited to 150 units of each color: red, white, and blue, with a black and white silkscreened American flag image on side B. The record will be pout out on Hardline Entertainment.


TSOL vocalist Jack Grisham offers the following statement:



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.
