Information zur Veranstaltung
Good Riddance are back. Back with their core lineup and their first album in eight years, Peace In Our Time. The "critic's" band has the respect of their peers and those in the know. They're students of the genre who draw from real punk rock influences and their songs come from a very sincere place. It all culminates for the band with Peace In Our Time: on the album opener, “Disputatio”, you can hear dark and thrashy hardcore reminiscent of their contemporaries Paint It Black; then maybe some aggressive melodic punk à la Bad Religion on “No Greater Fight”; Black Flag's hefty, discordant HC on “Dry Season”; and definitely some of The Descendents on “Washed Away”. But make no mistake, Good Riddance has cultivated their own sound from this diverse set of influences and that's probably why their old-school fans have stuck with them. If die-hards need a reference point for Peace In Our Time, think about their high water mark efforts like Comprehensive Guide... or the hardcore staple, Operation Phoenix.
This new album is essentially the very best of GR distilled down to one LP, and it will no doubt get the attention from a lot of old fans, HC devotees, and punk enthusiasts alike. They're already booked to play Europe's Groezrock, one of the biggest punk festivals in the world. There will also be an obvious hometown record release show in Santa Cruz, where they have been selling out countless shows over the years. Good Riddance will be ramping up some activity, and with hardcore music seeming neutered and confused in 2015, Peace In Our Time will mark a triumphant return for a band that the underground scene needs more than ever.
