In 2018, guitarist Jay met singer Slam in Las Vegas and had a bit of a discussion about punk rock and the various bands that have populated the scene. Soon thereafter they found bass player Gogo and drummer Cody and formed a band under the moniker Gob Patrol.
After recording their first demo, Gob Patrol hit the road playing shows to large crowds in California, Utah, Arizona, and raging away out in Las Vegas where they’re based.
The concept was to develop music based on the influence and sound of their favourite 80s punk bands, and to keep that sound alive in a growing scene. Writing guitar-driven songs inspired by bands such as Black Flag, GBH, and The Germs.
Now signed to Riot Records, there’s a full album of punk anthems promised soon, but first they are following the punk rock tradition and releasing singles to begin with.
They debuted with ‘Anarchy’ a shouty little number that takes you back to this side of the Atlantic, and the streets of London where punk rock officially began. You can stream/buy ‘Anarchy’ here and pogo along to the video right her at RAMzine.
Gob Patrol has now followed that with ‘Sin City’, wherein thunderous guitar and drum tones, and high-energy vocals can be heard. You can purchase the single here and watch the video to it .
