The Skinny: Prolific Canadian pop-punk pioneers Gob are excited to announce that their sixth studio album, Apt. 13, will be released worldwide on August 26, 2014, on New Damage Records. Apt. 13, is the follow-up record to 2007’s Muertos Vivos and the band’s first full-length release in seven years. The album will be available for pre-order on all formats (Digital/CD/Vinyl) in June. A special digital deluxe edition of the album, which includes three additional new songs, will be available via iTunes. In anticipation of the new LP, the band has just leaked the lead single “Cold”.

Entirely self-produced, Apt. 13 features 10 catchy, upbeat and anthemic tracks that demand repeated listening. Ripe with Gob’s now-signature energetic, guitar-driven take on punk rock, Apt. 13 leans less towards the straight-up pop influence of its predecessors and puts focus on a fuller, more layered rock sound that includes sonic elements of decades past. Tracks like “Can’t Get Over You” and “Radio Hell” sound big and upbeat, loaded with thick, full guitars anchored by throwback punk rhythms, driving, pulsating piano licks, and backing vocals that borrow as much from The Beach Boys, as they do influential ’70s punk acts. At their very heart are the hooky choruses with huge vocal harmonies that will have longtime listeners feeling right at home. Conversely, tracks like “Tonight” bring even more vintage influence to the table, with parts that trace back to early R&B while keeping the band’s overall sonic attitude intact.
