Los Angeles Punk Band Get Out Deliver a Classic With “The Violation of Terms and Conditions”
Los Angeles punk band Get Out showcase their knack for heavy hooks, pummeling rhythms, devilish lyrical wit and an unfiltered rebellious spirit on new full-length album cheekily titled “The Violation of Terms and Conditions”. Founded in the mid-90’s, Get Out have had a long and storied career thus far, having released 8 albums and shared the stage with bands like Voodoo Glowskulls, Streetlight Manifesto, and Suburban Legends. With song titles like “Six Feet Apart”, “The Right is Wrong” and “The End of Florida”, Get Out have no shortage of grievances to air out on this dynamic new collection.
The band expand on the album’s title theme: “When we released our last album “We Were Here First” in 2019 it was taken off Apple Music after one week because Apple claimed our album art “violated the terms and conditions”. After we changed the artwork and resubmitted, Apple Music listed it as Metal (it is not) and placed it under a different artist of the same name (we’ve had this name since 1994). We have tried to contact our distributor as well as Apple music so many times and no one will respond to us about it. The first song written for the album Rotten Apple is a criticism of a corrupt corporation that only cares about the elite. Other tracks were inspired by the pandemic of 2020 as well as the state of affairs in our country and society.”
Get Out™ Bio
Get Out™ was founded in the mid 1990’s in the halls of Eagle Rock High School in Los Angeles California. It took a long while for the band to find its style, exploring many of the different popular rock idioms of the time. Their musical influence was schizophrenic.
Get Out™ released their first album entitled “Their Self Title Debut Album” in 2001. It’s honestly quite terrible as they were doing everything themselves for pretty much no money and no, you can’t hear it. But you have to suck before you can get better.
Get Out™ released their second album “Better Than The Last One” in 2003. At this point the band had finally found their calling and passion; Punk Rock and a little bit of ska. Critics called “Better Than The Last One” better than the last one. This album became digitally available in 2010 as the band, still broke, could not afford to produce or distribute this album at the time.
Momentum began to build around this time as the band had a purpose. Get Out™ played consistently around their home of Southern California. In 2004 they recorded a third album “Still Not Famous”. The album received good reviews by the band member’s immediate families and one small newspaper (that’s how old this band is, newspaper!). Get Out™ started playing shows for actual audiences with people in them. They were asked to perform in Adelanto CA at the local minor league baseball stadium. Get Out™ also received an endorsement deal from energy drink company Nitro 2 Go.
The band rode the momentum into their fourth album “Back Despite Popular Demand”. In this era the band was playing to sold out crowds in big Hollywood venues opening for such bands as Voodoo Glowskulls, Streetlight Manifesto, and Suburban Legends. Things were looking good.
But then they started getting older. Band members’ jobs starting getting in the way of playing Los Angeles punk music. People around them started having kids and were no longer coming out to shows. The band spent 7 years making their acoustic album “Offending You Gently” to appeal to the wussy people they knew. Band members had kids and stopped showing up to practice. Crowd sizes dwindled….
Get Out released what was to be their last album “Thank You and Goodnight” in 2012. They played their last show the same year. It was no longer fun.
In the following years a few posthumous releases were uh, released. “Epilogue” was a 19 minute epic featuring drummer Jeff Bowders who played with Shakira once. He also played on a couple new songs on “Get Outtakes” which also featured two songs left off “Offending You Gently”.
And that’s where it ends. But also where it begins.
Get Out™ is officially back, revamped. Their seventh album “We Were Here First” was mixed by J.P. Peters (who engineered Propaghandhi’s “Victory Lap”) was released in 2019. Their eighth album “The Violation of Terms and Conditions” will be released on January 5th, 2023. The first video “The Right is Wrong” currently has over 84,000 views on YouTube. After the forced pandemic hiatus they have been playing live shows again. It’s been electrifying.
It’s been a long journey fueled on determination and belief. We thank you for taking the time to join us.
