South Florida skate punks The Sons of James have unveiled their new single. “Boswell” is out now.
Speaking on the new song, drummer Steven Blair shares, “Boswell is an anthem of hope, determination, and strength. From overcoming drug and alcohol addiction, to striving to reach your goals, Boswell reinforces the will to never give up and never let go.”
Coming together with a passion for punk and hardcore, and to honor an old friend, The Sons of James have had to tackle more obstacles than most. Their melodic punk is, unsurprisingly, abundant with candor amidst the barrage of hooks and high-octane delivery.
The band’s moniker is a nod to fallen friend Kyle James who was a member of an early iteration of the band. James’ loss both devastated and catalyzed the reunion of old high school friends Steve Blair and Sean Attwater, who, along with original vocalist Morgan Moore, brought to life The Sons of James.
Their 2020 debut album Traverse was recorded with Jesse Cannon (Brand New, Basement, The Cure) and saw the rockers find their feet with a high-energy, late-’90’s inspired brand of melodic skate punk, moulded on the likes of The Offspring, Lagwagon, and blink-182.
Consistent shows across Florida and a growing reputation for a high-octane live set have seen The Sons of James pick up a small but loyal army of fans across the region. A raft of support slots, including for Uncle Kraker, further solidified the band’s reputation as a highly diligent emergent in the Sunshine State.
Following on from summer singles “Real Me” and “All They Told You,” “Boswell” is a high-octane journey of punchy guitars and resonating choruses, a track that is rooted in the now, whilst proudly displaying it’s throwback heritage.
