Epitaph Records haben OFF WITH THEIR HEADS unter Vertrag genommen. Die Band nimmt sich derzeit eine Auszeit vom Touralltag um an ihrem zweiten Longplayer zu arbeiten, der im Sommer erscheinen soll.
“Off With Their Heads might be the best punk band going right now, Epitaph needs them; music needs them,” so Epitaph Chef Gurewitz über die Band.
“I remember the first time I'd heard of Epitaph,” so Young. “It was when I was in junior high and Rancid had just released Let’s Go. I saw the video, and immediately went and bought the record. I got into the compilations, and that started me on the road to finding all these great aggressive catchy punk bands. Living in a small farm town, I had never been exposed to this kind of music before, and from there I learned about punk. I guess you could say Epitaph was my gateway into everything that I would wind up becoming. For that reason alone, I am ecstatic to be a part of one of the biggest influences on my life.”
“We recorded our record in Minneapolis at a studio called The Terrarium,” erzählt Young. “This is where most of the great sounding records that come out of town are recorded. I think the difference between this record and our last one is that we have enough time to make sure everything is tracked and mixed the way we would like it to be. We have never in 6 years had more than 2-3 days in a studio, and there have been parts on every recording that I'd wished we would have fixed and not used the old "good enough" excuse. The songs stylistically are a mix of something from every record, which is great.”
Die neue Musik beschreibt er folgendermaßen:“it’s a good mix of driving aggression and also mid tempo pop. Those are our two strong suits, and I’m hoping they shine through as well as they have in the past. Lyrically, it’s about the good and the bad things of the lifestyle that I've chosen for myself.”
