OFF! is a punk rock band hailing from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 2009 by members of various notable punk and hardcore bands, including Keith Morris of Black Flag and Circle Jerks fame. OFF! is known for their fast and aggressive style of punk rock, drawing influences from early punk rock bands such as the Germs and Dead Kennedys.
Their music is characterized by its high-energy, raw sound and politically charged lyrics. OFF! has released several critically acclaimed albums and has gained a dedicated following within the punk rock community.
OFF!’s latest album, their first in eight years, showcases the band’s ability to blend various influences into a unified sound. The album features the core duo of Keith Morris and Dimitri Coats, who wrote the raging two-minute tracks that make up the album. New members Autry Fulbright II and Justin Brown bring punk into another dimension, with Coats adding layers of electronics and Morris’s vocals sounding timeless.
While the album contains some familiar influences from Morris’s past, such as Black Flag and Circle Jerks, and Burning Brides riffs, it goes beyond that. The standout track, “War Above Los Angeles,” combines the band’s past with otherworldly interplay, while tracks like “Kill To Be Heard” offer no-nonsense furnace blasts. Morris himself explains that it was time to use a new palette of colors and shades in their music, moving beyond typical punk rock scenarios.
