Guitarist Dan O’Gorman has given us an insight to the single ‘Snake in the Grass’…
Dan: “This song was an eye opener for myself. The original idea was to write about a shitty person I was living with and how they made my life miserable, then after looking at he situation retrospectively, I realized I was the bad guy; I was the villain living among them, the snake in the grass. Also, I’m a history teacher and I really loved the story behind the Culper spy ring during the revolutionary war, where a spy loyal to the patriots is still living with his Tory wife and pledging his loyalty to the British. I found our two stories aligned quite well so I tried to use older English terms and vocabulary to cross both ideas together. Also, you could tell by this song that I wish I was in Lagwagon. The bridge/conclusion is my favorite part. It just kind of states, I’m no longer beholden to your world so I’m going to build my own out of what’s left, much like after the revolutionary war.”

MUCH THE SAME JOIN PEE RECORDS ROSTER!


Today we’re super stoked to announce the second new band to join the Pee Records family this year, Chicago punk rock band Much The Same!

Reunited in 2015 after an 8 year hiatus, Chicago’s MUCH THE SAME continues carrying the torch of aggressive, melodic skate punk. Originally formed in 1999, the band quickly gained popularity in the Chicago punk scene, and eventually broke into national and international awareness with their ‘Quitters Never Win’ album in 2003 (A-F Records) and ‘Survive’ in 2006 (Nitro Records). Though the band broke up in 2007, word of mouth continued to grow their fanbase throughout the world. Much The Same now celebrates its 20-year anniversary and guitarist Dan O’Gorman’s recent victory over cancer by releasing their third full-length album, ‘Everything is Fine’.

‘Everything Is Fine’ was Produced and engineered by Nick Diener with additional engineering by Scott Hallquist and Mark Michalik, with the awesome album art by the talented Sebas Thériault of SterioDesign. We’ll be unleashing the first single and announcing the release date and pre-order date here soon!
Welcome to the Pee Records family Much The Same!

Reunited in 2015 after an 8 year hiatus, Chicago’s MUCH THE SAME continues carrying the torch of aggressive, melodic skate punk. Originally formed in 1999, the band quickly gained popularity in the Chicago punk scene, and eventually broke into national and international awareness with their ‘Quitters Never Win’ album in 2003 (A-F Records) and ‘Survive’ in 2006 (Nitro Records).

Much The Same now celebrates its 20-year anniversary and guitarist Dan O’Gorman’s recent victory over cancer by releasing their third full-length album, ‘Everything is Fine’.
When asked about the new album frontman Chris McGrath replied “Thirteen years have passed since we released Survive and we are very different people than we were back then. Everything is Fine is definitely a lyrically darker album, but musically more upbeat. It is a progression in our sound and our songwriting, and we experimented a little bit more than we have before, but it is still every bit a Much The Same record: fast, melodic punk rock with choruses that won’t leave your head and lyrics about real life.  There was no grand plan in writing this album, and no expectations of what might come of it, just a chronicling of a very difficult time in our lives and a celebration of the opportunity to play music together again.”
Pee Records released “Everything is Fine” on Gatefold CD and Limited Edition 12″ vinyl July 2019.

MUCH THE SAME are:

HAVE A SAFE & HAPPY XMAS…


As this is the last post for 2020 we want to wish you all a safe and happy Xmas break and an amazing 2021. It’s been a challenging year for us all, a year that began strongly with the release of Hightime‘s 7″ EP ‘Thrive’. But before the band’s national tour and the EP were released our new life of living with COVID-19 began and changed everything. Hightime‘s national tour was cancelled, along with international tours for The Decline, Stone Lions and Much The Same.
Life in lockdown saw our bands using their down time to write and record a flood of new material, which has seen new tracks released from Nerdlinger and Driven Fear, plus a new digital split in the last few days from Perth’s Burning Fiction.
We released vinyl re-issues of debut albums from both The Decline and Much The Same, along with a charity split EP by The Decline and California’s Sic Waiting which we recently pressed as a 7″ EP. Pat Decline gave us his debut solo album ‘Nine Lives’, and our lovable locals Hightime continued to celebrate their 10th anniversary even without being able to tour, with the release of the punk video documentary A Decade of Thrivin’.
We lost a much loved member of our family with the tragic passing of She’s The Band drummer Amy Cook. We added a new band to our roster with the release of Chaser‘s 7″ EP ‘Look Alive’, which sold out as quickly as we released it. And along the way we released a bunch of cool new merch with our Pee Records Backbacks, Gear Bags, 3D Embroidered Caps and Beanie.
So once again we send out a massive thank you to anyone who’s bought a record, t-shirt or cap or even just streamed one of our bands’ new tunes, you all rule for supporting our half-arsed label and our awesome family of bands! We wouldn’t exist without you! Be kind to each other and we’ll Pee your way again next year, when we’ll be sharing more exciting new releases with you all! xx

Please note all orders received from today will not be shipped until Monday 04 January whilst we take a short break.
