Steady yourself! Today, after a nine year wait, Noisey is premiering a brand new song from Good Riddance! “Dry Season” is an explosive first taste of their scorching new full-length, Peace in our Time, out April 21st. Vocalist, Russ Rankin expounds “This song is about the volatility and clash of deeply rooted belief systems in the Middle East, and the habit of the west to keep interfering in the region, with obviously questionable results.” Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting the pre-order soon but in the meantime, view their upcoming tour dates and prepare for GR’s ripping live show.
Launch into Tuesday with two powerhouse releases: The Flatliners and Western Addiction!
First up, we have The Flatliners 7", Resuscitation of the Year, a double A-side single which includes an unreleased song from the Dead Language sessions called “Fangs”. Since The Flatliners are headed to Europe on an epic tour, they put together a video of live footage and paired it with “Resuscitation of the Year”. Head to New Noise to watch them in action. Then, grab your copy today!
Next up, Western Addiction’s brand new three song 7", I’m Not the Man That I Thought I’d Be. Clatter and Hiss , which we premiered last week, is a demo of a song that will appear on their forthcoming album, and it marks the first appearance of bassist Tony Teixeira on a WA recording. If this has you frothing in eager anticipation for more, you’re in luck because they’re recording this fall! To get you even more pumped, read a new review over at punknews and then head over to Revolver to listen to the title track which features Dara from the band Serpent Crown.
Europe! Both bands are headed your way this week with Lagwagon to unleash an all-out blitz of punk rock. Get stoked!
