Pop punk greats and Brooklyn faves, Thick, have announced a new album, Happy Now, and along with it released the first single, “Loser.” The song is a catchy romp with crunchy guitars and sugar sweet harmonies, seeming at first to lament the woes of being a loser, but digging a little deeper, it’s more a song saying that it’s okay to be less than perfect and that you can find your strengths to shine no matter who you are or what other people say: “Do you think that I’m a loser? I love when people tell me I should quit,” summing it up perfectly.

 

The song comes with a hilarious new sports themed video that was directed by FTA contributor Jeanette D. Moses (who also directed the video for “Mansplain”) and features the band training hard for a softball game, pushing themselves to the limit while being egged on by their over zealous coach, played by Gillian Visco (of shadow monster) complete with a “There’s no crying in baseball” t shirt. If you squint behind the plate, you’ll also see more FTA crew talking smack (aka yours truly).

 

The full album is set for release on August 19 via Epitaph Records. The band will embark on a fall tour with Skating Polly to support the album starting September 7. Watch the video below.
