THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Las Vegas punk rock outfit Gob Patrol have unleashed their new EP New Spit. Gob Patrol are heavily inspired by the legendary ’80s U.S. punk scene highlighted by acts such as Black Flag, GBH, Minor Threat and The Germs. They are angsty, rebellious, chaotic and 100% pure old school punk rock.
New Spit features five furious and raging punk rock tracks including the singles Anarchy and Sin City. Anarchy is a track directly under the influence of the aforementioned acts, old school, proud and punk as f**k. While Sin City continues Gob Patrol’s reputation for thunderous guitar and drum tones, and high-energy vocals. This is as punk as it gets folks!
Say the band: “In summer of 2018 the idea of Gob Patrol started with Jay the guitarist meeting the singer Slam in Las Vegas over a discussion of punk rock bands and our ideas we wanted to present. We soon found our bass player and our drummer Cody.
The concept was to develop music based on influence and sound our favourite ’80s punk bands to keep that sound alive in a growing scene here. Writing guitar driven songs inspired by bands such as Black Flag, GBH, and The Germs! Our message was heavily against the PC culture. Songs about drinking, chaos, and staying true with no PC crap. Started quickly recording a demo and hitting the road playing shows to large crowds in California, Utah, Arizona, and raging in the Vegas scene! Looking to spread our sound around the world and take over.”
