It's been nearly a decade since Goldfinger released a new album, but now singer-songwriter/producer John Feldmann has resurrected the name for a new album with a brand-new lineup. Goldfinger's The Knife will be released July 21 through Rise Records. The revamped lineup features Feldmann on guitar/vocals, with MXPX’s Mike Herrera on bass and Story of the Year’s Phil Sneed on guitar (both doing backup vocals as well). Blink-182's Travis Barker is on the throne behind the drum kit for this one, and there's a ton of guest stars as well.
With my recent acquisition of both a Nintendo Switch and an Xbox One S, I have finally re-entered the world of video gaming on a regular basis, and it's something that I'd definitely been missing. While my gaming interests have always gone in waves, the late 90s/early 00s were notable thanks to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. As my wife can attest, those games were a huge deal for me back then - a series that I followed for quite awhile, often spending many late-night hours busting out the kind of tricks that I always wished I could do in real-life, but sadly lacked the skill to pull-off. As my life changed, I missed out on some of the later entries, but with talk of the series soon finding a rebirth, it was pretty exciting to learn that a comprehensive documentary about the games and the cultural phenomenon around them is now in-production. Pretending I'm a Superman: The Tony Hawk Game Story is currently seeking funding via Indiegogo, and the pitch trailer is a good one. Check this out...
