SET YOUR GOALS have announced that they are going to begin recording their new studio album in January of next year. This will be their first album without their drummer Mike Ambrose, who recently announced his decision to leave the band.
SET YOUR GOALS themselves write:
As many may know, Mikey will be playing his final shows with Set Your Goals on December 2nd and 7th, at the Metro Opera House in Oakland and Chain Reaction in Anaheim. Most importantly with this news, we want everyone to know that there are no hard feelings between anyone in the band and that we are/have always been friends above all else. Everyone in Set Your Goals wishes him the best in all of his future endeavors, music and otherwise. If you wish to get in touch, Mike is welcoming questions or messages from anyone who wants to reach him via Twitter @MikeAmbrose636 or on Facebook.
To answer a couple quick questions, we are indeed still working on new music for an album we’ll be recording in Orange County in January, and we’ll be taking to touring as soon as that is all finished up. Chad Gilbert will be producing with Paul Miner engineering, and Mike Green will be mixing everything in Los Angeles. Mike produced “This Will Be The Death Of Us” in 2009 and helped out with a few small pieces on “Burning At Both Ends” in 2011 as well. We are very excited about his involvement on the mixing side of the release, and we are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to work with Chad and Paul (whom we recorded the two digital iTunes singles with in February) on a full-length. We hope to have everything released in Summer 2013 with Epitaph. We plan to tour rigorously in support of the album and are stoked to return to some of the cities we haven’t played in a while.
Once more, we can’t wait to return to the studio and create new material to share with all of you again! The biggest thank you to everyone who keeps an eye out, drops a line to say hello, or even shares photos, videos, or stories from a show. Your continued support means the world to us and it’s what keeps us going through the ups and downs. We wish all of you the best as this year comes to a close and we head into 2013.
