Goodtime Boys' Rain is officially out today! In celebration, we're giving away the track "Folsom" as a free download this week only at our Bandcamp. They'll head out on tour in support of the record very soon as well (dates below).

Goodtime Boys have spent five years and multiple EPs, splits, and singles molding their melodic emotional hardcore sound into something that stands apart from their peers and predecessors, laying it all out on this, their first proper studio full-length, Rain. Though Rain is driven with an almost consistently aggressive thrust and unpredictably spastic inclinations, the band's introspective exploration of loss, longing, and existential crises result in flashes of heartrending crescendos and gracefully woven atmosphere. While the album's title seems to reference the doggedly overcast ether the band's UK homeland usually brings to mind, its floral cover reminds us that the grayscale spectrum of cathartic sorrow can also result in colorful growth and beauty.
