Album Notes
Nashville-based rock group GoodNight City, formed in early 2003, takes an old-school approach to rocking out: relentless touring, catchy songs and an incredible stage show. Sound simple? According to lead singer Dax McCall, it is.

“So many groups today over think things,” he said. “At the end of the day, we’re a band. So, we do our best to rock and keep our fans happy. We write good tunes, travel everywhere and play our hearts out onstage. It’s that simple.”

And while their plan-of-attack may sound simple, an incredible amount of work has gone into building the escalating force that is GoodNight City. McCall and guitar player Blair Gilley first met in Louisiana. They later moved to Atlanta, formed and toured briefly in a band called Field Day, where they met bassist Chuck Pollitzer. Soon after enlisting the help of drummer Josh Lee, the foursome regrouped, found their sound and became the power pop outfit GoodNight City.

GoodNight City released its second offering in January 2007. The Disc is a 7 song EP that includes a 30 minute enhanced video capturing the band live and in the studio. It brilliantly captures what so many other groups find elusive: it is polished, yet somehow remains raw. Every song showcases the driving, dynamic energy that has become this band’s trademark while effortlessly blurring the borders of rock, pop and punk. The EP—packed with the catchy guitar rock that GNC fans have grown to love—will be released in conjunction with a 64-page full color limited-edition book.

The group’s debut album, You Are Almost There, was released in September 2003. Industry website Kings of A&R called the release “addictive and charismatic,” and Performer Magazine raved that GoodNight City has “raised the bar for independent recording artists.” It has sold more than 11,000 copies to date.

GoodNight City boasts an impressive résumé for such a young group. In August 2004 they were chosen as one of the top three best unsigned bands in the country by Their music was heard by more than 22,000 listeners on Playboy’s website. Additionally, eight of the tracks from GoodNight City’s debut album have been featured in MTV, VH1, E & ABC shows, including Real World, Road Rules, True Life, Hogan Knows Best, Wife Swap and MTV News. Their unbeatable stage show has landed them gigs with Simple Plan, Avril Lavigne, Butch Walker, Maroon 5, Good Charlotte, Panic at the Disco and many others.

A perpetual crowd pleaser, GoodNight City has an active street team with more than 400 members across 21 states. This word-of-mouth marketing has helped establish GoodNight City as one of the South’s fastest growing favorites. The band’s website averages 1800 hits a day, and their MySpace page has received almost 250,000 song plays to date. Utilizing endless touring, radio support and Web-based promotion, this road-tested-and-approved band has built a dedicated fan base that continues to grow with each passing day.

When asked what’s next for GoodNight City, guitar player Blair Gilley said, “That’s simple—keep rocking out and making good music. That’s what we do.”

Excellent songs!
I bought this CD recently and have been listening to it on repeat in my car, it's SO addictive! The standout track is Picture Perfect which I must have listened to at least 50 times by now. It's a huge song, full of hooks. And when you think it's all over, the end is even catchier, with those enormous triplet drum beats.

If this band isn't famous any day now, I'll be very surprised!
