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.”
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!
