The record is an extensive collection of B-sides and outtakes titled Prototypes and Painkillers. It will be available March 2009 on CD and LP.
But first, The Loved Ones new EP Distractions is slated for a February 3rd release.

Now is your chance to snag a Deluxe Limited Edition Double LP of Good Riddance’s very last release, Remain In Memory: The Final Show. We only pressed 1100, and we will not repress this! Each record is colored vinyl with hand-numbered gatefold jackets, including an 11×11 full color, 56 page Good Riddance photo history book.
Remain In Memory is a live recording of Good Riddance‘s final show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, California on May 27th, 2007. The set list reads more like a greatest hits album, mixing the best of the band’s 12+ year career and touching on favorites from each of their seven full lengths, EPs, and 7"s on Fat, plus a couple of rarities. Order your copy here while supplies last!
