Fat Wreck Chords and singer-songwriter Joey Cape, are thrilled to announce the Friday, August 13th release of his brand new solo record, A Good Year To Forget (pre-order). Cape's latest effort is a reflective album written during a year that saw him lose his father, separate from his wife of 20 years, contract COVID, and move back in with his parents due to a livelihood lost. A Good Year To Forget is a warm and beautiful record that encapsulates all the trials and tribulations over those challenging 12 months. Today, we're delighted to share the lead single, "It Could Be Real," streaming via American Songwriter and on our YouTube page! Joey Cape had this to say about the first track below: 

"It Could Be Real" is a song written from the perspective of a disenchanted single person. A person who has experienced the highs and lows of multiple failed relationships. They have more than once considered the possibility that they are not fit to partner with another. But they have landed on complacency. They now believe they are actually capable of lasting connections and their potential to be fit enough for someone else. It's a suspicious invitation, but the song is meant to be tongue and cheek and light as well.   

Additionally, Joey Cape will be touring Europe this summer, and you can view those dates here!

  Heads up, the vinyl release date is November 19th, so if you pre-order vinyl, expect to get your copy then.
