The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster will shortly announce details of a November UK tour which will be known as Enter The Savage BooHoo Tour !
To kick it off the band are curating their own
Following the departure of founder member and guitarist Marc Norris earlier in the year the band have now appointed Dominic Knight as a permanent replacement.
On October 11th Eighties Matchbox release a new single, So Long, Goodnight, taken from their third album Blood and Fire released earlier this year to great acclaim, after a six year hiatus. The single, on Black Records, will be available on vinyl and as a download. So Long, Goodnight is the bands first ever ballad.
To me it really reminds me of the whole Beat Generation mentality, frontman Guy McKnight explains, and how that filtered down through folk, someone like Bob Dylan, which then transformed into rock music and how that whole beat generation philosophy is basically a strain of proto-punk. So Long, Goodnight reminds me of a road movie. Its definitely an anti-hero ballad.
