Off With Their Heads – Home

March 8, 2013

It's a good year when it's barely March and you already don't know what your favorite new album of the year will be because there are so many excellent candidates. Which is a clumsy way to say Off With Their Heads are back, still furious, fucked up, and screaming about it in your face. If you don't like it, that is most decidedly not their fucking problem.

 "Home" is the band's newest release on Epitaph, slated to come out March 12. It is everything fans have come to expect from the band, gut-wrenching lyrics screamed over pounding fast guitars, cut with painfully honest breakdown tracks like "Don't Make Me Go" where a stripped down guitar and drum beat back singer Ryan's plea not to be forced to go home "and say sorry for things I'm not sorry for." Other songs like "Take Me Out" unleash all the confusion, frustration, and rage of a Punk rock life, compressed into about 2 1/2 minutes. 

While definitely Off With Their Heads, this album manages to avoid sounding like a copy of previous records. The themes may be similar, and the number of chords limited, but the songs are unmistakably new. But, to steal a phrase, you don't have to take my word for it. Epitaph has put up a full album stream on YouTube, along with links to the preorder.

So check it out, then go get yourself a copy HERE
