Aussie-born, New York-based rock band goodbyemotel will release their highly anticipated album iF worldwide on Tuesday, November 18, but you can stream it ahead of time exclusive here at Music Times.
The album, which has been in the works since 2012, was produced by Kevin Killen (U2, Peter Gabriel) and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros, M83) along with Andy Baldwin (Björk, St. Lucia).
"Since getting to America we've been on the road quite a bit," drummer Paul Amorese told us. "We want this album to reflect our musical journey as a band during that time."
The band is known for their ability to meld sight and sound for a truly unique live experience. They've toured across the US, UK, Japan, and Australia with their 4-D live shows putting fans right inside the music for a vibe similar to Pink Floyd's psychedelic concerts.
Interestingly, the artist behind such iconic album covers as Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy, Storm Thorgerson, offered to design the artwork for iF because he was such a big fan of goodbyemotel's EP People.
You've likely heard the band's music on shows such as Gossip Girl, Covert Affairs, Suits, Summer Coda and in Chrysler commercials.
Fronted by Swedish/Australian singer-guitarist, Gustaf Sjodin Enstrom, along with Aussies Tom Marks, Scott Pioro, David Schmidt and New Yorker Paul Amorese, the band has an the intensity that could fill an arena but a dynamic that works even on the smallest of stages.
