It’s finally official, a new Good Riddance album 'Peace In Our Time' is ready to be unleashed upon the world! It will be out on April 21st via Fat Wreck Chords. 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!!
