The Good Life are heading back to the UK for the first time in nine years.
The band, featuring Tim Kasher of Cursive, play The Borderline in London on 20 February 2016 as part of an extended European tour in support of their latest album, ‘Everybody’s Coming Down’.
The quartet’s frontman and lyricist Kasher kicked off the project in October 2013 when he started writing new songs intended for the band, also featuring drummer Roger L. Lewis, multi-instrumentalist Ryan Fox, and bassist Stefanie Drootin-Senseney. They then reconvened in the second half of 2014 to finish the writing process.
Embracing more of a rock sound than their gentle, folk-driven earlier work, ‘Everybody’s Coming Down’ was recorded with Ben Brodin at Omaha’s ARC Studios in January 2015 before the finished product was mixed by John Congleton (best known for his work with St Vincent and John Grant).
The result has been described as “a soundtrack to Man’s 21st century existential angst” that “poses cosmic queries, contemplates regrets, questions self-worth, and examines the possibility of living in the moment, when memories are all that we truly take with us”.
