Off With Their Heads' Touring is "Motivated by a General Hatred of Everything Else"

Melodic Minnesota punks Off With Their Heads are a busy bunch. The band is currently making the rounds in Canada and down the U.S. west coast after some border crossing issues.

"I used to love the marathon touring," says singer and guitarist Ryan Young, "but I'm a little more into balancing it out so I don't feel like I have to kill everyone for no reason."

We recently caught up with Young to discuss Off With Their Head's rotating roster of band members, the challenges of working with Bill Stevenson, and how the punk community came together to help raise money for Young's throat surgery.
