About Gob

Gob are Canadian pop-punk trailblazers with sneering, high-energy songs centered on strong hooks. Formed in 1994 in Vancouver—not too far north of pop-punk’s California birthplace—the band released their debut, Too Late… No Friends in 1996. They followed it up with How Far Shallow Takes You—featuring a breakneck cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black"—in 1998, and broke through with 2000’s The World According to Gob and the hyper “I Hear You Calling,” which helped cement Gob’s heavy yet harmony-laden style. In 2003, they delivered Foot In Mouth Disease and tracks like the seething “Give Up the Grudge.” Their metal influences showed on 2007’s Muertos Vivos, especially on the punishing “Underground.” In 2014, they revealed a darker, more mature side (and the prominent addition of keys) on Apt 13, with songs like “Radio Hell” recalling their roots while forging a path forward. Since 2006, singer/guitarist Tom Thacker has also played with fellow pop-punk heroes Sum 41, precipitating a slowdown in Gob's output.
