The Good Life has announced a U.S. tour this November that will take the band throughout the east coast and midwest. The dates begin on November 9th in St. Paul, MN and wrap up with a hometown show on the 28th in Omaha, NE, and include a Brooklyn, NY show on the 17th. A current itinerary is below.
The band today also premiered new song "Modern Mary" - a previously unreleased non-album track recorded during the sessions for their 2015 album Everybody's Coming Down - via Brooklyn Vegan, and the song can also be streamed here:
A vibrant sonic evolution for the band, Everybody's Coming Down is the band's first album since 2007 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, Stefanie 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 band began recording the album in January 2015 at Omaha's ARC studios and finished the songs 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). John Congleton (St. Vincent, Baroness, Angel Olsen, Cloud Nothings) mixed Everybody's Coming Down at his Elmwood Recording in Dallas, TX.
