W/supports tba

Arrest Records Australia And Epitaph Records present, US punk rockers Off With Their Heads are heading our way this November in support of their new record, Be Good. Their forthcoming LP will drop on August 16 and features new single Disappear, which is accompanied by a music video starring US comedian Kyle Kinane. "All the other records were about moping around and feeling sorry for yourself," frontman Ryan Young said. "This one is less about feeling sorry for yourself and more about accepting how goddamn miserable you are. "The title is an answer to that question of what you're supposed to do now that the world is so awful and the climate of this stupid country is so shitty. Be good, be loud-that's sometimes all you can do, I guess, as cheesy as that sounds."
