Goodbye June releases the first track off their upcoming EP Secrets In The Sunset [Cotton Valley Music] titled “Live In The Now” which premiered on Ones to Watch yesterday. The track is a pastiche of slide, acoustic, and electric guitar, the psychedelic sonic framework gives way to an overpowering hook that’s as hard-hitting as it is harmonious. Listen to "Live In The Now"
“Live In The Now is about focusing on the possibilities of living life without the burdens of past mistakes, forgiving yourself, and loving and living right now. If we always wait for the future, it will never be, and if you always live in the past, how can you truly exist now?” – Goodbye June
Against all odds, Goodbye June’s resolute spirit defines their 2018 EP, Secrets In The Sunset [Cotton Valley Music]. Within the span of two years, they lived through a dramatic series of ups and downs, placing them on both sides of the spectrum. As they entered Black River Studios with producer Bobby Huff, the three-piece drew on “this turning point of joy and heartache” to record the five-song collection.
The Nashville trio of cousins–Landon Milbourn [vocals], Brandon Qualkenbush [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], and Tyler Baker [lead guitar]–have quietly emerged at the forefront of the 21st century rock vanguard. In the wake of their 2017 full-length debut Magic Valley, the boys earned the endorsement of Rolling Stone, contributed “Liberty Mother” to a high-profile Budweiser campaign, packed shows across the country, and racked up 30 million-plus cumulative Spotify streams. Their hard-hitting songs were placed on Madden 17, Wrestlemania (WWE), NHL All Access broadcasts as well as NFL and ESPN College Football broadcasts. An avalanche of rip-roaring rock ‘n’ roll, Southern-fried blues, and gospel soul, the group traverse their own lane at full speed, etching out a place ahead of the pack.
The band will also end the year by joining rock band Greta Van Fleet on the road for their European tour in addition to a headline hometown show in Nashville, TN. See below for a complete schedule.
