The song is a catchy, foot-stomping number, and the decision to film a prison-performance style video enhances the vintage, soulful feel of the track. In the interview, they talk about getting the idea from the last scene of the Blues Brothers movie, and making fun of serious situations like alcoholism and being in jail.

"S.O.B." appears on the band's upcoming, eponymous album due out Aug. 21, 2015. It is currently available on Amazon. You can also stream it on Spotify and read our review here on Zumic.
