Gay For Johnny Depp ready new album

By January 6, 2011 December 30th, 2021 Leeds

Brooklyn hardcore punk band GFJD (Gay For Johnny Depp) will release its sophomore album What Doesn’t Kill You, Eventually Kills You on February 14, 2011 via Shinebox Recordings.  Mixed by Grammy-nominated producer Alex Newport (The Melvins, Sepultura, Pissed Jeans), the Valentine’s Day release brims with electro-fury and has been called a “faster, meaner, rawer, leaner” update on the band’s fierce sound.


When asked for comment on the sound of the new album, the band replied in typically snide fashion: “The record is the sound of children being thrown from a carney carousel. A caffeinated, incorporated cog in the machinery…naked aggressive, nightly news-ish and stress related.  Album of the Year (1989).”

The tracklist for the album is below:

1) ‘Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny and Artistic Integrity’


2) ‘Suckcess’


3) ‘She Has the Hottest Limp (It’s All Noize)’


4) ‘Humility Is For People Who Don’t Comprehend Their Own Mortality’


5) ‘We Are the World? Burn It Down!’


6) ‘Rod Don’t Surf’


7) ‘Nine Inch Males (Born to Hate)’


8) ‘No, I’m Married to Jesus.  Now Keep Your Fucking Hands Off of Him.’


9) ‘Pink Flag’


10) ‘What Doesn’t Kill You, Eventually Kills You’


11) ‘Cum On Feel the Boize’
