Off With Their Heads

Off With Their Heads is a punk rock band formed in 2002 from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since their formation, they have often featured a rotating line-up of tour players, due to their members' other commitments and Off With Their Head's own full-time touring schedule. Singer/guitarist Ryan Young has noted that having different musicians helps keep the band fresh.
According to the No Idea website, the band had planned to release The '69 Sound, a second singles collection of more recent split 7" material. However, this has since been refuted by No Idea, who commented saying "This thing will never happen."
On September 10, 2008, Off With Their Heads self-released a music video for "Fuck This, I'm Out"
In late 2009, the band was chosen as one of Beyond Race Magazine's "50 Emerging Artists," resulting in a spot in the publication's No. 11 issue (with Bodega Girls and J. Cole on the cover), as well as an exclusive Q&A for the magazine's site.
In February 2010, it was announced that Off With Their Heads signed to Epitaph Records, with a new record due for June 1 of that year.
While the line-up has never been stable, the band has always included Ryan Young and Justin Francis. Though Francis no longer tours with the band, he continues to write and record songs as the band's drummer and has played on every Off With Their Heads Record to date. Similarly, Zack Gontard (who joined in 2006) no longer tours with the band, but remains the band's guitarist (and backing vocalist) for the purpose of recording. Francis and Gontard's stand-ins for live performances are (as of May 2013) - and have been (since 2012) - Ryan Fisher and John Polydoros.
