Good Riddance

good-riddance-39Good Riddance formed sometime in the 1990s, depending on who you ask. Four scrappy punk kids in Santa Cruz who could hardly contain their love for Bad Religion, as can clearly be heard on their debut, 1995s For God And Country. But things moved forward fast for GR and they became one of the most important bands among the punk/melodic hardcore scene for the next decade. They boast massive album sales that number in the six figures, and they managed to accomplish that while staying true to the underground and remaining on an independent record label. They toured harder than any band in the scene, but by 2007 they had disbanded. They burned bright and they burned out.But theyre back. Back with their core lineup and their first album in eight years, Peace In Our Time.We didnt want to be a band who overstayed our welcome, said frontman Russ Rankin about their decision to dissolve all those years ago. He adds, Everyone was becoming increasingly busy with other, non-music careers, families, etc. The curse of the punk rocker, right? Well, not so fast. One thing that you need to know about Good Riddance is that these guys are lifers. Rankin put it simply, We missed playing the songs. They had no choice but to return to the music because it was part of their DNA.And their resume is worth noting. The band has been very humble about their activism, almost to the point of being bashful about their contributions towards the community. Russ wont even discuss his vegan lifestyle or his compassion towards animals, but hes been committed to that for decades now. Theres also the fact that the band has been donating proceeds from their album sales to various charities: Food Not Bombs, Santa Cruz AIDS Project, the Cabrillo College Music Department, Santa Cruz Homeless Shelter, and more. By now youve probably guessed that Good Riddance has a leftist message to go along with their urgent music. True, but they also back up their words with actions and money to the causes they believe in.Le
