Better Off Dead EP
Greyskull are a three-piece Texas Punk-Rock band from Dallas, who have been spreading their infectious sound to the Texas punk scene since Chris Smyers and Brad Bevill started the band in 2002. Rooted in melodic punk rock, Greyskull are influenced by the great bands and artists before them like Social Distortion, Bad Religion, Ramones, and Descendents. With the addition of Robbie Estill on drums, Greyskull recorded their first EP in the fall of 2002. 'Better Off Dead' is five raw, punk rock songs chock-full of energy and potential. Greyskull followed up 'Better Off Dead' with their first full-length album, 'State of Ruckus', and put it out themselves in the summer of 2004. The full-length is made up of Greyskull's catchy choruses and powerful guitar rifts. In January of 2007, Greyskull released a brand new EP, 'Pretty in Ink.' Although their sound has matured, the band continues to write simple, straight forward songs with tons of energy which include the one thing all punk songs have in common, a message. 'We're all getting older now and have a completely different perspective on life than we did when we started writing our first songs six years ago. I think we all have a lot to say as far as life experiences and opinions, whether it be about politics, the struggles of life or religion,' says Chris. 'Pretty in Ink' touches on a range of controversies - from corporate greed ('Elevator Friends, Hallway Enemies') to profiteering ('Sick of It') to watching your life fade away ('It's Time'). But true to Greyskull's style, these songs also give the listener a sense of empowerment and hope. The title track 'Pretty in Ink' is sure to have you singing along, while 'Texas Song' will have you two-stepping in your Chucks. Greyskull are establishing themselves as one of the classic punk rock bands which continues to do what they started out doing, writing and playing music they'd listen to while avoiding getting caught up in the trends of today's music scene. Their dedication and blue-collar approach to making music has these Texas punk rockers on a roll and there are no signs of them stopping.
