times I feel it…”
Produced by lead vocalist Peter Wilson and mixed by drummer and Grammy Award-winning engineer Nick Cipriano, “Good Times Goodbye” is the hard-hitting, gritty new single from Four Trips Ahead’s as-yet-untitled upcoming spring 2013 release. Successfully combining their exciting, adventurous trademark sound with heavier production, the new track possesses the urgency and maturity that mark Four Trips Ahead as a force to be reckoned with in modern rock music.
Four Trips Ahead roots date back to 2001, when seasoned New York City musicians, guitarist Brian Eisenpresser, bassist Dan Cassidy, original drummer Dan Walsh and lead vocalist Peter Wilson first came together in search of a new creative outlet. Instantly, the quartet recognized their common musical interests: creating heavy, progressive sounds with strong melodies and dynamics. In a matter of a few rehearsals at the infamous NYC Music Building, Four Trips Ahead was born. The band soon brought their high-energy show to audiences in New York City and throughout the tri-state area.
After independently producing three EPs, “Beginnings” in 2002, “The 505 Sessions” in 2004 and “39th Street Lullabies” in 2005, Four Trips Ahead released their long-awaited full-length debut in 2008 on 505 Records. The group followed the release by touring on the East Coast, playing the CMJ Music Marathon in NYC and Organic Entertainment’s showcase at the WE Festival in North Carolina. Two videos were shot for the album: the live performance rehearsal clip for “The Gift” and the award winning story short for “A Moment.” Loud rock formatted college radio played Four Trips Ahead on heavy rotation where the band charted on many top ten playlists including stations such as WRSU, WDTS, KSLU, KLPI and WQHS.
With the success of their first full-length release behind them, Four Trips Ahead began intense writing, resulting in 2010’s “The Memories” EP. Desiring to keep the energy from rehearsals intact, the majority of the music was tracked over one extended summer weekend with overdubs at Spin Recording Studios in Long Island City and Analogue Muse in NYC. The songs connected well with radio listeners—“The Memories” charted at #5 most added on the Hard Rock/Metal CMJ charts in November of 2010 within its first week. Four Trips Ahead also made waves abroad, garnering great reviews and charting on hard rock/metal stations in England, Germany, Belgium and France. Notable UK rock magazine, Fireworks UK, helped champion the band in Europe, including the rousing track, “Remembering Who I am”, on their new music sampler. The band also released a thrilling, dark-humored new video in 2011 for “This Night” while playing dozens of shows, including a headlining slot at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.
Emboldened by the strong response from “The Memories”, Four Trips Ahead began once again writing and recording extensively. With the desire to keep the songs fresh, organic and inspired, the band returned to Spin Recording Studios and Analogue Muse over several sessions to capture the excitement. The fruits from these recordings, the first with new drummer and long time collaborator Nick Cipriano, are now coming to light-- the exciting single, “Good Times Goodbye”, hits the airwaves on February 19, 2013, and is available on iTunes and Bandcamp.
