LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2016 — Melodic punk is back with a vengeance. That is what will pop into your head four seconds into hearing the first track of the new Guttermouth E.P., Got It Made, which is being released jointly on Bird Attack Records and Rude Records and is set for a July 15 release date. This brand new release is a revival of their energetic, hyper sound from classic earlier albums such as, “Friendly People” and “Teri Yakimoto,” and has the same comical type of song lyrics one has come to expect from Guttermouth. It is pure nostalgia, and a wonderful walk down memory lane or like traveling back in time 20 years.
Mark Adkins’ unique voice and singing style always gives every Guttermouth release that special touch. With Got It Made being their first release in ten years, the band did a spectacular job.
What is great about Guttermouth is they have hardly changed at all, despite being together for almost 30 years, and Adkins being the only original member still in the band, and that is a good thing. You just have to admire bands that sing about bathroom humor long after their 20s, which is super punk rock.
Punk is about being rebellious and having fun and fun seems to be the big concept of this new E.P. From the first track, “The Point,” which rips on annoying, high maintenance girls, to the last track, “Old Man,” which is totally the ultimate, “Screw you,” song to life in general.
The overall vibe of “Got It Made” is awesome. Its retro sound and entertaining song topics are an epic combo. In a recent interview with Communities Digital News, guitarist Geoff Armstrong said this release was a test E.P. to see what people think and it totally passes. “Got It Made” deserves an A+ grade. If there were a grade higher than that, it should get that. It is just that good. Hopefully Guttermouth will release another full length soon. “Got It Made” proves that they have the full potential to do it again.
Fans are going to love hearing this. Guttermouth should really give themselves a big pat on the back. They did a fantastic job making this record. Punk fans should give “Got It Made” a listen. They will not be disappointed.Click here for reuse options!
