New Good Riddance due July 6

here's a full-text email for you because, well, there's just not much more I can add to this one -

GOOD RIDDANCE, the legendary pioneers of melodic hardcore, are set to releaseCapricorn One on July 6th. In between putting out many acclaimed full-length albums,GOOD RIDDANCE kept themselves busy releasing a bevy of material via 7” singles.Capricorn One is a comprehensive collection of all these singles, as well as 6 previously unreleased tracks and other rarities. All the songs on the album have been digitally remastered by Jason Livermore of Blasting Room (Rise Against, Descendents, NOFX) fame. To complete the package, Capricorn One features a track by track commentary written by singer Russ Rankin. Here’s a little taste of what he penned regarding the album as a whole:

Throughout the history of Good Riddance there have been numerous songs which, for whatever reason, we weren’t able to include on our primary releases. Many of these tunes were frequently played live and most of them are still some of our own personal favorites.

Now that we are finished we felt it would be cool for our fans to be able to check out these hidden or obscurely released snapshots of our band during the apex of it’s existence. We hope they bring back fond memories for our fans and that, even if just for a moment, they can be transported back to a different time and place.

this may be it for the day -

  • Richard Youngs' Beyond the Valley of Ultrahits will be released by Jagjaguwar on vinyl only July 20
  • one of my newer favorite acoustic guitarists is having back trouble - Matt Stevens has been cancelling gigs due to extreme pain
  • Sleepy Sun's new album, Fever, will be out on June 1 (ATP) - already out in UK/Europe
  • three more artists added to Maha Fest set for July 24 in Omaha - the Mynabirds, It's True and Ben Kweller join Spoon, Superchunk, The Old 97s and the Faint.
