Entirely self-produced, Apt. 13 features 10 catchy, upbeat tracks that demand repeated listening. “We’d made a lot of records and learned a lot over the years,” vocalist and guitarist Tom Thacker explains. “We know exactly how we want our songs to come off, and it keeps the Gobness of it all really unadulterated and pure.”

Ripe with Gob’s now-signature energetic, guitar-driven take on punk rock, Apt 13 finds the band picking up right where they left off with Muertos Vivos; however, the new album leans less towards the straight-up pop influence of earlier albums and instead puts focus on a fuller, more layered rock sound that includes sonic elements from the past.

Rest assured, this is still Gob – guitar-driven, melodic, and full of pure piss and vinegar but with some fresh new elements tossed into the mix. “We made a semi-conscious decision to write more upbeat songs than the last record,” Thacker notes. “We’re all pretty stoked on life in general, and this one is more in tune with that attitude.”

Formed in Langley, BC Canada in 1993, Gob consists of Tom Thacker (vocals/guitar), Theo Goutzinakis (vocals/guitar), Gabe Mantle (drums) and Steven Fairweather (bass). Over the course of their career, the band has amassed JUNO nominations, has had tracks featured in countless movies, TV shows, video games and sporting events and has made massively popular music videos for singles like “ I Hear You Calling” and “Give Up The Grudge.”
