This album is the apex of Somebody’s Basement’s creative output and is also our final release. When we first played together in a Wethersfield basement in December of 2012 we didn’t expect to last more than a few months. As I’m writing this I’m realizing that this frivolous little project has turned out to be one of the most important parts of my life. I’ve met new people, fostered new friendships and rekindled old ones.
If our previous releases were rehashes of much better pop punk and emo records, then ‘somewhere else’ is the antithesis of those concepts. It’s about coming to terms with your sicknesses. It’s about realizing that even though you’re happier now, “this town” wasn’t so bad after all. It’s about learning how to be an adult in a world that you’re realizing hasn’t been as much of an adversary as you once thought. It’s about deciding which one of your friends are worth bringing into adulthood with you; about not being bitter anymore toward your past partners and being willing to work your shitty job forever because dying isn’t worth your time.
It’s a record predicated on the cigars we’ve smoked on Connecticut mountains and the dark roasts we’ve thrown away on the way to an early morning practice.
We couldn’t be happier with this release, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we all fought during its development.
