Off with Their Heads is a punk rock band formed in 2002 from Minneapolis, Minnesota.[1] 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 has noted that having different musicians helps keep the band fresh.[2]

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.[3] However, this has since been refuted by No Idea, who commented saying "This thing will never happen." [4]

On September 10, 2008, Off With Their Heads self-released a music video for "Fuck This, I'm Out" [5]

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 #11 issue (with Bodega Girls and J. Cole on the cover), as well as an exclusive Q&A for the magazine's site.[6]

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.[7] The signing is notable in so far as Off With Their Heads are the first punk band signed to Epitaph (which for the last decade had moved away from traditional punk rock in favor of metalcore and screamo)[8] since 2001 when the label signed Deviates.

After years of nearly non-stop touring, the band has found a stable line-up, though two of the members continue to front their own part-time bands. Zack Gontard sings and plays guitar in Dear Landlord, while Justin Francis sings and plays guitar in Apocalypse Meow.
