Cursive Offshoot the Good Life Announce New Album
Published May 27, 2015Not only does Tim Kasher front the band Cursive, he's also spent a decade and a half leading the Good Life. It's with this project that he will release his next album, Everybody's Coming Down, which is due out on July 14 through Saddle Creek.
The Good Life haven't released an album since 2007's Help Wanted Nights. Kasher started writing these songs in October 2013, and the quartet regrouped between July and December 2014 to finishing writing. They entered Omaha, NB's ARC Studios with Ben Brodin in January, and the recording was subsequently completed during at-home sessions. Indie studio guru John Congleton (St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, Cloud Nothings) mixed the results.
In contrast to the group's folk-leaning past work, Everybody's Coming Down is described in an announcement as "very much a rock record." While the Good Life began as a Kasher solo vehicle, this latest LP is said to be their "first [album] that truly embodies the band as a whole."
