With their straightforward, acoustic-based take on punk rock, San Francisco five-piece Get Dead formed in 2007.
Guitarists Mike McGuire and Moki Noodlez, bassist Tim Mehew, drummer Scott Powell, and vocalist Sam King signed to Fat Wreck Chords for Get Dead's debut album, 2013's Bad News. While their tendency to draw from Irish folk and their stripped-down sound were unique to the label, their gritty, punky sensibilities and party-hearty attitudes aptly mirrored those of Chixdiggit!, Swingin' Utters, NOFX, and the like, making the D.I.Y. label a tasty fit. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
