You may have been wondering what's been going on with Socratic. Well, today we're premiering the band's new song, the painfully honest lullaby entitled "My Girl's First Baby." This is the group's first studio release since the band's self-titled release, which was released last year (available on iTunes). Post Drive-Thru Records fallout, Duane Okun, Lou Panico, Vincent Damico, Tom Stratton, and Chris Grzan continue to create, collaborate, and perform. The band will soon be releasing a statement regarding their future plans and projects. In the meantime, check out "My Girl's First Baby" in the replies and let us know what you think.

Last Saturday I journeyed through time and space – okay, it was a cell phone – to talk to Socratic vocalist Duane F. Okun about the band's new record, life for Socratic post-Drive-Thru records and what we can expect from the band now that they've released Socratic. Read the interview here.
From the interviewI don’t really think we chose to do it. Like with me, there was no choice but to do another record. I would have felt really terrible about myself just letting other people at any time in your life make you stop doing something that you like or telling you it’s over if you don’t believe that it’s over.

Some have accused Socratic of cheating in the Denny's All Nighter contest. To this, they have issued a statement. Read it below and vote for them to win so we can all get some free food out of the deal.
Socratic SaysSo someone has posted that we have a bot making our numbers rise on the Denny's All Nighter Competition. Not only is that offensive, but really makes me angry. Touring is expensive, and eliminating our food expenses would help out a great deal. Needless to say we have been promoting the CRAP out of that competition, rallying fans, friends, and family, even voting ourselves.........BOT hahaha! If we win, you're all invited to come eat with us. Even the person making false...
