Jan. 12 — The Thomas Nicholas Band opened the weekend with the release of its new single and video.

The band — fronted by its namesake vocalist (who is himself known for his work on movies, such as A Kid In King Arthur’s CourtAmerican Pie and Rookie of the Year) — debuted its new single, ‘Better Than Home’ and the song’s companion lyric video Friday.

The single boasts a catchy, infectious musical arrangement that is easily likened to works from so many pop punk bands of the mid to late 1990s and even early 2020s.

Nicholas discussed the song’s musical arrangement in a prepared statement.

“While I was working in the studio with my producer Taylor Carroll (Kemikalfire, LIT), his friend Zac Barnett (American Authors) decided to stop by and say hello,” he said. “Taylor grabbed a guitar and played him a chorus we were writing and before I knew what was happening, Zac started singing the melody what would become the opening versus for the song, ‘Better than Home.’

Nicholas also addressed the song’s lyrical theme in his comments.

I threw out some lyric ideas and then I tried to retract them because they were too personal … Zac immediately suggested that those were the best kind of lyrics and that I should write about what I’m scared to talk about,” said Nicholas. “So here I am with my heart on my shirtsleeve with this song.”

Nicholas continued, “To really drive it all home, the artwork includes a reflection of the first place I lived. A double wide trailer outside of Las Vegas. I will also be heading to my other hometown of Santa Cruz to film in the parking lot of the Catalyst – a venue that I finally got to perform at last year with Bowling For Soup.”

The song’s video features the song’s lyrics placed over footage of people out and about having fun together. The song plays over the visualization as it progresses. Much of the footage used in the video coincides well with the song’s lyrics, adding to the song’s engagement and entertainment.
