The UK’s Goodtime Boys are entering the studio today to record their first proper full-length album, which will be available from Bridge Nine in 2014. The band’s impressive back catalog boasts multiple EP releases, including the acclaimed Are We Now or Have We Ever Been, the What’s Left To Let Go double EP (Bridge Nine) and their upcoming split 7inch with Self Defense Family (November 11, Palm Reader Records).

Goodtime Boys are currently holed up with Lewis Johns at The Ranch Production House in Southampton, recording 12+ new tracks that will appear on this yet-to-be-titled LP. The new songs are "...a progression from our split with Self Defense Family. Some of our heaviest, most aggressive songs will sit alongside some of our most melodic. Every song has a different vibe," commented bassist Leigh McAndrew.

Upon completion of recording, Goodtime Boys will head out on tour across Europe and the UK with labelmates Defeater, with some special headline shows bookending the tour in South Wales, Brighton and Belgium. Tour dates can be found below with more being announced soon - don’t miss your chance to see the live show from a band coined as "like watching a British Converge."

Goodtime Boys formed back in 2009 in the UK and features members Alexander Pennie (vocals), Casey McHale (drums), Leigh McAndrew (bass), Lewis Johns (guitar) and Samuel Phipps (guitar). Since their formation, Goodtime Boys have shared the stage with Pianos Become the Teeth, More than Life, La Dispute, Touche Amore, and more.
