Get The Fuck Outta Dodge
“It’s not our fault if your boyfriend’s stupid”
24th February 2022

On Feburary 24th, Prolific punk noisenics, Get The Fuck Outta Dodge will release their new slab of aural thuggery on an unsuspecting public.

The 10 track onslaught “It’s not our fault if your boyfriend’s stupid”, was recorded in November 21 by Sheffield music stalwart, Alan Smyth (Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, 65 Days of Static) at his legendary 2Fly Studios.

Showing a marked progression from their sophomore release (Buzzkill), the songs on INOFTYBS are tighter, fuzzier, louder and more in your face than ever.

In collaboration with Do it Thissen Records, It’s Not Our Fault That Your Boyfriend’s Stupid will be released as a limited run (50) Lathe cut 8” record.

Each vinyl will come in a bespoke, hand screen printed, GTFOD tote bag (whats a record sleeve???), lovingly crafted by the band via their newly formed side project Dodge Designed This! (More DIY than Wickes, word).

Pre orders will be available from 04/02/22 via Do It Thissen’s bandcamp page https://doitthissenrecords.bandcamp.com

Their music is still making people say stuff like…”messy, but cool AF”….”god damn! sick punk music, man I’m hyped! and “I’m a fan”

Get The Fuck Outta Dodge are James (bass) and Ren (drums) who make garagey/punky/harcorey noise via the gift of big muff, big drums and big mouths.

Formed in 2019 as a bit of a piss take, Ren Dodge wanted to learn drums, make a band and record an album before hitting that 40-55 demographic tickbox (he was 39 and a half at the time).

Within 4 months they had sleazed out their debut album Climbing Higher, Hitting Harder than King Kong being released via the Laundrette Recording Company.

In mid-2020 lockdown dystopia, the duo released a covers album, These Songs Aren’t Ours, recorded remotely via the gift of tin cans connected by string. The album showcases their eclectic influences covering bands from a vast array of genres and a damn fine version of Joe Jackson’s I she really going out with him.

September 2020 the We Make The Future Here EP dropped on an unsuspecting public to a prodigious reception. 5 sonic blasts that clock in at just over 5 minutes accompanied by 4 music videos pulled from the ether of the interwebs finest (and cheapest) purveyors of video trickery. Earworms a plenty and short enough that you can listen to it twice in the time it would take you to listen to November Rain or Bat Out of Hell….or even the theme tune to Quantum Leap…maybes

The EP stood as an appetite wetter for their forthcoming 2nd album Buzzkill which was released on 30th October 2020. An album jam packed with fat riffs, pounding drums and singalong choruses that embed itself in the conscious of punk loving urchins across the globe.

Attracting a 4* review from the ever amazing The Punk site and Ear Nutrition just confirming that… “Buzzkill simply is, with this “is” being exactly what you’d expect from an underground two-piece Punk band. A high-quality, raucous ride of confident and intrinsic energy, well confined and distributed within a small yet refined maniacal and spasmodic powerhouse.”

Some people say go big or go home, some say tune in and drop out. We say Get The Fuck Outta Dodge!!!!
