Los Angeles’s legendary punk/ska band Goldfinger is back, with the announcement of their new album, The Knife, to be released July 21 through Rise Records. After nine years of producing and writing music for other bands, Goldfinger is proud to be back with 13 tracks of their very own for their first time since the release of their 2008 album, Hello Destiny... Pre-orders for the album begin today and are available here: https://RiseRecords.lnk.to/TheKnife
Today, the band has also released a new track, "Put The Knife Away," which can be heard below!
The album features a host of special guests including guest vocals from Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, 311 lead-singer Nick Hexum, Mighty Mighty Boss Tones guitarist Nate Albert ("Get What I Need") on guitar, Twenty One Pilots' Josh Dun on drums ("Orthodontist Girl"), and ONE OK ROCK's Takahiro Moriuchi, amongst others.
The Knife is not a nostalgia play; it is an evolution of the band and a reflection of the musical and life experience that singer-songwriter/producer John Feldmann who explains, "I took my time making this record...Nine years to be exact! I feel like I've made the most concise Goldfinger record in my career. We have all Goldfinger styles together as one, with Zakk Cervini, who mixed the Blink-182 record, and Travis Barker on drums, I couldn't be more proud of an album."
