2016 saw the release of PULLEY’s last album, 2021 an acoustic EP and a B-Sides compilation, but Californian skate-punk legends Pulley have also been busy working on new material and will release their new album “The Golden Life” on May 13. The title track “Golden Life” is a taste of the new melodicore album with lyric video.
The first single, “Golden Life,” fittingly titled “The Golden Life,” is released today and we are stoked to give fans of the former Fat Wreck and Epitaph band a taste of a new album that has it all!
Golden Life is an anthem to youth for vocalist Scott: “I’m watching a generation of kids seemingly robbed of an experience. A life without easy access to good and bad. Much of what they’ve seen in the world has been negative, unimaginable terrorist attacks, war and violence, a division of people,” the singer and former professional baseball player said.
“As for music, our generation really had to earn it if we wanted to hear or see it properly. Technology has its good points, but it has taken away an experience that allowed for a deeper appreciation of life. The irony is that our generation is partially responsible for this platform,” he continues to explain what the song is about.
Pre-sales for Pulley – The Golden Life will begin on April 25, 2022 via SBÄM Records at shop.sbam.rocks.
As for how the new album came about, Scott Radinsky explains, “The writing process for this album was a little different because of the pandemic. When everyone was out of work at the beginning, we decided to write new material, we had a lot of time to devote to the music and were able to flesh out the songs until we felt they were ready.”
In 2021, both an EP of four Pulley classics made into acoustic tracks and the compilation “Encore” were released.
“The difference between this and the acoustic album is that everyone contributed here and the songs were all new, whereas the acoustic album was just a different interpretation of the music that had already been released,” Scott says.
“We’re all proud of how these songs turned out musically and sonically and can’t wait to play them live and share them with everyone.”
