DOWNLOAD: Gay For Johnny Depp - "Suckcess" (MP3)

GFJD

It's a hard road to tread when press refers to you as "the band that taste forgot", but depending on what you're going for, that could be a complement (and in this case, I think it is). Bringing to mind the post-hardcore nuttiness associated with bands like Refused, The Blood Brothers and Daughters (RIP?), Brooklyn wildmen Gay For Johnny Depp are prepping to release a new six track EP entitled Sex Vid Singles Club. The band, which features members of Mind Over Matter and Errortype 11 in their ranks, will release the EP on October 12 via Shinebox Recordings (A new label). The EP will serve as a primer for the band's full length which is due in February 2011. Dig on "Suckcess" above and a video for literally every other song below.

GFJD currently has one date on its calendar,10/21 at Matchless Death by Audio with Strife, Cruel Hand, Batillus (who just played Cake Shop), and Primitive Weapons (lineup seems to be up in the air) as part of CMJ (it's the Shinebox Recordings showcase).

The show is part of a short east coast tour one of two in NYC that the ex-straight-edge kingpins Strife are scheduled to play that week, They also play Mercury Lounge on 10/20 as part of the Converse-presented "True Til Def" show with the decidedly non-straight-edge crew of Priestess, Earthless, Disembodied, Iron Age, and Naam. Smoke 'em if you got 'em and head to the site to RSVP to the free CMJ show.

Tracklisting and tons of videos are below....

@ 5:27 THANK GOD for an all ages hardcore show. The line up for the 10/21 show rules but everything else about it sucks. Dying to see strife but not at a whack industry metal show.

@5:33 i'm assuming you mean the mercury lounge show when you said "whack industry metal show" and i couldnt agree more. brooklyn diy show is much more appropriate for a hardcore show and i will see you there.

@ 5:39 haha thanks for catching that. 10/20 mercury lounge 21+ RSVP show sucks. 10/21 all agres brooklyn hardcore show is whats up.

I heard Brooklyn show is all rumor bullshit...why would promoters shoot themselves in the foot like that

Posted by Anonymous | September 23, 2010 5:45 PM

Let me see, a weed-friendly stoner show headlined by a straight-edge band and filled to the brim with industry d-bags? Or should I choose the meathead hardcore show filled with football-playing LI dipshits? Pass.

Incendiary
Gay For Johnny Depp
Death Before Dishonor
SPECIAL GUEST... think 90's... think headbangers ball

Dumbest press photo ever. Guy looks like he's not even into it.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 6:54 AM

They stole the name from my band, Gay For Tom Cruise

LOL! 5:47: so, so true.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 10:41 AM

stupid, star-fucking name. are they trying to impress someone?

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 10:53 AM

At least the name is kinda funny. I heard of a band recently called "I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism In Your Yearbook", so trust me, it could be a hell of a lot worse!

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2010 11:03 AM

The two below have to be the best song title names I have heard in a long time. Songs are totally what is missing in Punk today, raw aggression with no agenda in my opinion. Great band name to boot. Most of you are obviously sheepish morons.

2.) Hey Fucked Up! (Punk Rock Can't Exist in Countries with Good Social Services)
4.) You Have a Theory, I Have a Gun

Awesome.

Kinda sounds like Propogandhi song titles.
