Published Aug 26, 2014"Apartment 13 is the one we share," croons Gob guitarist Tom Thacker at the beginning of the title track from the group's first album in seven years, Apt. 13. Actually, Thacker's spent much of the band's break since Muertos Vivos holed up in Apt. 41 (as in Sum 41, where he's been moonlighting as lead guitarist), but he's back with his main gig now, with whom he performed this recent Exclaim! TV session.
"Cold" was the first taste we got of their latest album (which you can now stream in full), and the Alkaline Trio-esque track is the perfect introduction. While this performance essentially served as a soundcheck for Gob's recent Sneaky Dee's show, it certainly doesn't feel like it; the pop punkers sound good enough to be playing to a packed house.
If this doesn't sate your appetite for the band's brand of "Soda," you can catch them on a cross-Canada tour with Seaway this October (and a bit in November). Check out the Exclaim! TV session below, then find your October destination here.
