Last week, we announced Good Riddance’s hotly anticipated full-length, Peace in Our Time. Today, the band announced a grip of record release shows in California (sorry rest of the world, you’ll have to wait to get your dates!), culminating in their hometown of Santa Cruz! Our very own Bad Cop/Bad Cop will be joining them. Stay tuned as we’ll be premiering a new song very soon!
Unleash your inner animal with a brand new song from Strung Out! Revolver is premiering the first new Strung Out song in six years: “The Animal and the Machine.” It’s your first cathartic taste of their blistering new full-length, Transmission.Alpha.Delta, out March 24th. Pre-order the album and a killer art print set right now! Want to see them live? No problem, they’ve booked a massive North American tour starting April 2nd: Transmission.To.The.Nation Tour 2015! Europe, hold tight because they are headed your way this Summer.
Head over to Substream to listen to The Real McKenzies’ new song, “Who’d a Thought,” culled from their brand new full length, Rats in the Burlap, out April 7th! Check out their massive world tour starting in March!
Strung Out’s brand new album, Transmission.Alpha.Delta, is available for pre-order now! In addition to the band working tirelessly to create a career-defining album, singer Jason Cruz worked tirelessly to create an original painting for each song on the album. In a special bundle available now, you can get a set of quality 12”x12” prints, suitable for framing, of all 13 paintings to go along with your album. Record nerd alert: we have two different color vinyl variants available, one with the bundle and one on its own.
It’s finally official, a new Good Riddance album is ready to be unleashed upon the world! We could not be more fucking excited to present to you: Peace in Our Time. The first Good Riddance album in nine years, it rips all expectations to shreds. Packed with everything you’ve ever loved about Good Riddance, Peace in Our Time is essentially the very best of GR distilled down to one LP. Packed with massive, memorable riffs from guitarist Luke Pabich, blistering Chuck Platt bass madness (and screams!), lightning fast, precision-guided drumming from Sean Sellers, and infectious melodies as only Russ Rankin can sing, every song on this album is an immediately classic GR punk anthem. Reuniting with Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore (Descendents, The Blasting Room), the team captured the essence of what has made Good Riddance one of the best bands in hardcore punk rock for the last twenty years. Tour dates soon! Read what Russ had to say about the new record:
After five years of not playing together, followed by two years of amazing shows around the world, we finally succumbed to the inevitable itch to write new music. The resulting collection of songs is something we’re very proud of, and we absolutely cannot wait for our fans to check it out!
In 2010 I had a few songs which I demoed on my own, and when I played them for the rest of the Good Riddance guys, they were stoked and wanted to make them GR songs. Luke had some really cool riffs and ideas he had been working on as well, so that when the writing process began for this album, a lot of the material came together very quickly. The rest was fleshed out during hours of rehearsal and some help from our friend Bill Stevenson.
We hope our longtime fans enjoy the new songs, and we are excited to share them with a whole new generation of Good Riddance fans!!
