Album Review: Get Dead – “Bad News”

Get Dead
Bad News
(Fat Wreck Chords)

It’s surprising this isn’t a celebrity band of all your punk rock heroes, because it plays like a rustic, anthemic, approaching middle age punk record. A good mix of sparse, acoustic tunes that draw parallels to earlier Against Me! with Chuck Ragan-esque gravelly singing and plugged in bar rockers that would have even the most diehard straight edgers grabbing a PBR, these guys would be right at home on both The Revival Tour and tributes to The Replacements or Swingin’ Utters. In a perfect world, this is what people would associate with punk rock, not Fallout Boy. (Tom Haugen)
