Fat Wreck Chords drops the newest album from Bay-Area punks Get Dead entitled “Honesty Lives Elsewhere” this Friday and the album itself couldn’t be more honest. When writing the lyrics for this album vocalist Sam King was struggling with the loss of one of his closest friends who committed suicide. “I tried to distance myself from the incident as I was writing the album because I didn’t want it to come across as some morbid ode to him.” Lyrics can be interpreted in many ways but the reflection of King’s loss is present in these songs.
Former Get Dead member Josh Garcia recorded the album at Motor Studios in San Francisco and featured guest musicians include members of Lagwagon, toyGuitar and Old Man Markley. Fat Mike himself even lent production and writing assistance for this L.P.
