Punk trio THICK release video for new single ‘Tell Myself’


The pop punk trio from Brooklyn showcase second single from upcoming album ‘Happy Now’

I’m sure we all wish we could have a few minutes with our younger selves and impart some of the wisdom we’ve accumulated over the years, even if it is just to let them/ourselves know that things will be okay. Well, this is exactly what THICK have done via their new track ‘Tell Myself’ which sees them team up again with producer Joel Hamilton (Iggy Pop) for a slice of catchy, poignant pop punk.

Formed in 2014, THICK have been turning introspective observations and harsh truths into tracks that are equal parts endearing and exhilarating. Their new album will see the band- vocalist/guitarist Nikki Sisti, vocalist/bassist Kate Black, and vocalist/drummer Shari Page- tackle topics from self sabotage and insecurity, to victim blaming and destructive relationships.

The new album’s lead single ‘Loser‘ has already received multiple spins on BBC 6 Music and Radio 1 and the trio will be hoping to keep the momentum going with this new offering. Speaking about the new track ‘Tell Myself‘, the band explained the premise:

As you get older, you sometimes look at your little-kid self and wish you could give them a hug and tell them everything’s going to be okay.  It’s not about minimizing life experiences, but a reminder that you’re stronger than you think and that—despite what it feels like in the moment—there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Happy Now‘ is the band’s follow up to 2020’s ‘Five Years Behind‘, and this new 11 track album should see THICK’s star rise. Since signing to Epitaph in 2018, they have toured all over the US including with punk legends Flogging Molly and indie rock icons Violent Femmes. They embark on their own headline US tour in August 2022 so be sure to catch them if you can.

Happy Now‘ is released on 19th August via Epitaph. You can pre-order here.
