Omaha, NE's The Good Life today debuted their new video for "Diving Bell," off their recent album Everybody's Coming Down, via Substream Magazine and the "trippy" clip - directed by the band's own Stefanie Drootin-Senseney - can be seen here: 

The video comes ahead of the band's May/June co-headlining summer tour with Speedy Ortiz, which begins tomorrow with a hometown show at The Waiting Room. The band is also confirmed for three dates of Hear Nebraska's The Good Living Tour in late July. A current itinerary is below.

A vibrant sonic evolution for the band, their latest album - and first since 2007 - Everybody's Coming Down was released on August 14, 2015 via Saddle Creek and earned strong press attention from Noisey, Alternative Press, Stereogum, Paste, Village Voice, Substream, Consequence Of Sound, Ghettoblaster, Exclaim!, Absolute Punk, and All Music Guide, among others. The album fully expresses The Good Life perhaps more so than any previous release, combining and reflecting each member's nature and strengths: drummer Roger Lewis's love of classic rock, multi-instrumentalist Ryan Fox's chaotic approach to melody, Drootin-Senseney's propulsive yet tuneful bass parts, and singer/guitarist Tim Kasher's deft, complementary song writing. Lyrically, Everybody's Coming Down is an engrossing, contemplative mix that touches on existential and cosmic queries, ruminations on regrets and self-worth, and the power of memory versus experience.

The Good Life's previous album, Help Wanted Nights, was released in 2007 and earned the band press attention from outlets including Alternative Press, The AV Club, Big Takeover, CMJ, Paste, Pitchfork, and Under The Radar, among others. After touring in support of the record, and playing a handful of June 2010 shows, the band dispersed to focus on other projects - Cursive and solo albums for Kasher, Big Harp for Drootin-Senseney, the bands Conduits and Oquoa for Lewis, and solo material and a tape label, Majestic Litter, for Fox - but always planned to regroup for another album. Everybody's Coming Down was written mainly in late 2014, and The Good Life played a few shows that August, October, and December to road test some of the new songs. Recording began in January 2015 at Omaha's ARC studios and finished in the quartet's respective homes, which are scattered across the US: Chicago, IL (Kasher), Omaha, NE (Lewis), Los Angeles, CA (Drootin-Senseney), and Portland, OR (Fox). The band then traveled to Dallas, TX to mix with John Congleton (St. Vincent, Baroness, Angel Olsen, Cloud Nothings) at his Elmwood Recording.
