Rude Records are proud to announce the release of “Got it Made”, the long-awaited new EP from Southern California punk rock heroes Guttermouth, due out on July 15th worldwide in collaboration with Bird Attack records. With their first new material in ten years, Guttermouth is poised to add a new chapter to their legacy as one of punk rock’s seminal acts. Known for their short, fast and loud songs, outrageous antics and offensive lyrics, Guttermouth has attracted plenty controversy over the years. In other words – They are punk rock as it’s meant to be.
Formed in Huntington Beach, California in 1998, Guttermouth was heavily influenced by the Southern California punk rock scenes of the 1980’s which spawned bands such as the Adolescents, The Vandals, Social Distortion, Fear, Descendents, Angry Samoans, Bad Religion and Black Flag. The band took these influences and developed their own style of fast, punk tempos with humorously sarcastic and offensive lyrics coupled with equally outrageous and offensive behavior, developing a reputation for chaotic live shows.
In a collective statement, the band says, “After releasing 9 studio albums over the years, it’s sometimes hard to find new ideas and motivation, and life often gets in the way of creativity. A few of us had worked on some ideas in the years and talk started again on possibly releasing new songs, however, with the heavy touring schedule of the band, this proved very difficult. In the last 2 years something changed. While touring Australia in 2015, there was an opportunity to stay at a studio for a week in between legs of the tour. While staying at the studio, we were able to complete some of the ideas and record them as demos. Once back in the States we tweaked some of the songs once again. By then,we felt they were ready to be recorded properly. With no pressure of deadlines, we felt we were finally able to write songs we wanted to put out.”
Guttermouth initially planned to self-release the new material in order to avoid interference and pressures from a label, but then the band started talking with their long time friend, Bird Attack Records owner Garrett Wadford, about the possibility of teaming with the label to record the new material and it seemed like a great fit. Bird Attack then joined forces with Rude Records which will release the EP globally. “Got It Made” is due out July 15th.
