Sofa King Cool and Glostik Willy have teamed up to premiere the video for their next single “Back Room”
Back Room was a lot of fun to put down in the studio because it’s so much different than the normal Glostik song. There’s a lot of room left in the music to include a lot of our friends. So we rounded up all our favorite musicians and tried to make a very cool song. We think we accomplished that.
Sofa King Cool caught up with Glostik Willy to talk about their new single, their success on twitch and Willy town
Tell us about “Back Room” what made you come up with the idea for the song?
We were on tour and had made a stop at a casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana. After a long night in the casino, we were inspired to write this song.
Does the song have any personal meaning to you or was it something from an observation you wanted to get across to your fans?
The whole Toast the Coast Tour was one storytelling song after another. We wrote almost an entire album on that tour. Something about being on the road for 46 days brought a lot of inspiration our way.
What approach do you to take to songwriting and how was this track handled?
Songs most of the time come at random times. You just feel inspired to create and the songs almost write themselves. With proper inspiration songwriting is very easy for us.
When creating this track what vibe were you working to attain both in the sound and in the video creation?
With Back Room we were trying to create the best possible “song” we could. It gave us an opportunity to add other guitars, horns, organ, auxiliary bass, and a sock full of quarters… We really took our time to make sure the song featured some of the most amazing musicians we know.
Any challenges you found along the way? How did you meet them?
Usually when recording we run into many problems, the biggest one being studio time. This album was ZERO rush, we were able to take our time, relax and really focus on the product without any real challenges.
How do you describe your music to people who never heard it before?
The only way to describe it is Hippy Metal. You never know what you’re gonna get, one minute it could be country or a ballad that runs right into the heaviest metal!

weirdos that have a hard time finding a place to fit in.
What is Glostik Willy looking forward to in 2021? When can we expect more music?
Glostik has an exciting year ahead! We are working on tons of new studio recordings, with an album set to release this year. We are working hard on music videos and streaming 5 nights a week on our Twitch channel, usually 4-8 hours per night.
When touring begins again, any bands you would like to hit the road with?
We have always said we would love to hit the road with Ozzy Osbourne. I can’t think of anyone more legendary than him.
