Toronto, ON - July 15, 2021 - Soccer Mommy—a.k.a. Nashville native, Sophie Allison—released her critically-acclaimed sophomore, color theory last year, earning countless accolades and year-end list nods. Today she announces a new one-off single entitled rom com 2004, produced by 5x Grammy-nominated producer and songwriter BJ Burton (Charli XCX, Bon Iver, Chance The Rapper, Empress Of, Miley Cyrus). Allison says of the track: “I wrote this song a while back and made a poppy demo for it. Then I told BJ to destroy it.”  Listen to rom com 2004 and watch its incredible music video now here.

Soccer Mommy recently announced her long-delayed U.S. headline tour in support of color theory. Starting in September 2021, the tour stops at some of the biggest venues Allison has headlined to date, including  New York’s Brooklyn Steel on September 2, Montreal's Fairmount Theatre on September 25, Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre on September 26, and Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre on October 28, and will feature support from Squirrel Flower and Emily Reo. Many dates are already sold out but see below to find a show near you and get your tickets here.
This new single also comes on the heels of Soccer Mommy contributing, Kissing In The Rain, to DC Comics and Loma Vista Recordings’ recent collaborative soundtrack for Dark Nights: Death Metal. The soundtrack was executive produced by acclaimed composer Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy, Watchmen, John Wick). On this soundtrack, Soccer Mommy is joined by an array of artists across various genres—including Mastodon, Denzel Curry, Manchester Orchestra, Chelsea Wolfe, IDLES, and more.
About Soccer Mommy:
Following the release of color theory, Allison earned mass acclaim, with performances opening for Bernie Sanders, numerous upcoming headline dates sold-out months in advance, confirmed festival slots at the likes of Glastonbury, and her late-night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The album made it’s AAA Top 20 debut after release, was #1 NACC Top 200 for 4-weeks running, and debuted on the following Billboard charts: #1 Top New Artist Albums, #1 Alternative New Artist Albums, #4 Current Alternative Albums, #4 LP Vinyl Albums, #6 Current Rock Albums, #16 Top Current Albums and in the Billboard Top 200.
Additionally, with touring at a halt for the entire music industry, Soccer Mommy found remarkably inventive ways to stay busy during quarantine. She released a deluxe binder version of color theory which you can get here along with a demo EP of selected album tracks which you can listen to here. Last summer, raising money for National Bail Out & Oxfam’s COVID-19 Relief Fund, Allison released the Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series featuring Jay Som, Beabadoobee, SASAMI and MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden/Gentle Dom. She also joined forces with Actress & Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who remixed two color theory tracks. Listen to crawling in my skin (Actress Remix) here + circle the drain (UMO Remix) here. She shared an interview and performance via GRAMMY Museum®. Combining her love of video games and performing, Soccer Mommy held a digital concert on the online gaming platform Club Penguin Rewritten, with 10,000+ attendees (who all had to make their own penguin avatars to attend). So many fans logged on originally that the game’s server *literally* crashed and the event had to be rescheduled. Soccer Mommy also kicked off the NPR Tiny Desk At Home Series, performed on Pitchfork’s IG Live series, and released her very own Zoom backgrounds images. Soccer Mommy then embarked on another tour, of sorts: an 8-bit music video tour, hitting some of the cities she was meant to perform in on tour prior to lockdown.
