Good Riddance is finishing out their busiest year in ages with three California shows! San Francisco and Santa Cruz with Cobra Skulls and Western Addiction, and San Diego with Pulley and punk legends Battalion of Saints! Good Riddance’s hometown paper, the Santa Cruz Weekly, gives the band their due, covering their beginnings (part 1), break up and reunion (part 2)
Morning Glory have completed work on their new album War Psalms. It’s packed with 13 memorable songs and will be released on February 18th. Listen to the brand new song, “Nationality Anthem,” which appears on both War Psalms and the limited edition split EP currently being sold the band’s tour with Off With Their Heads. Read what Ezra Kire, singer of Morning Glory, had to say:
We took the summer off to record this record. We were driving Jesse (Cannon) nuts by camping out in his studio. I was up to writing at all hours of the night, taking brief naps under the piano. In the end we had 27 tracks from which to assemble this album. People who like earlier M-glory are definitely gonna like it. It’s faster, heavier, & more raw & stripped down than Poets, but retains that anthemic morning glory message. Brian Viglione (dresden dolls, and now violent femmes) added massive strength to the entire record with his powerhouse drumming style. Music is a forward moving journey & I can’t wait for it to be released. Everyone who’s heard it agrees that this record rocks.
