Contrary to the title, Get Dead’s latest full-length, Honesty Lives Elsewhere, is one of the most honest albums you’ll ever find. No shtick. No posturing. Just straight up, from the heart, punk rock. With multiple releases under their collective belt, Get Dead have really honed their trademark blend of raw punk and acoustic folk into a seamless style that feels completely natural. The lyrics and temper of Honesty Lives Elsewhere are instantly relatable, drawing on the experiences and tribulations of scraping through the day to day. Though their full-length isn’t out until July 29th, you can listen to abrand new song—“Silence”—over on our YouTube channel today! Then, check out what vocalist Sam King had to say below:
We are extremely proud of this new record. We got to work with a bunch of our friends again as well as some new ones. Josh Garcia once again gave up his sleep and sanity to orchestrate the chaos. Fat Mike returned to help produce it and contribute to some late night psychotic behavior. We had Miles from toyGuitar play some instruments that we can’t pronounce and Joey from OMM come through and bless us with some world class piano playing. It’s a fast, fun record and we can’t wait to unleash it.
We will be kicking things off in Japan at the beginning of August. Then a greater West Coast tour in mid-August before we head out to the East Coast. From there it’ll be Spain, UK and a grip of European shows, ending back in Florida for The Fest! We will have a few naps, then it’s off to Australia!
