The Skinny: On February 26th, SST Records will release Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge, the debut album from Good For You, the brand new band featuring influential guitarist and bandleader Greg Ginn and professional skateboarder and musician Mike Vallely (aka Mike V). Featuring eleven uniquely distinct high-energy rock songs blistered with themes of betrayal, regret, disillusionment, resolve, determination and independence propelled by Ginn’s distinctive, stun-gun guitar, Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge sets a new course for both musicians and delivers a strong statement of intent that begs to be heard.

Recorded at Ginn’s Casa Destroy Studios in Taylor, TX, Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge teams the singular guitarist – named as one of Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” – with the creative, aggressive Vallely for the first time since Black Flag’s 2003 reunion shows in Los Angeles where Mike V performed the entire My War album from start to finish with the world renowned punk rock band at the invitation of Ginn.

Good For You is currently offering fans a taste of what Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge holds in store, streaming the new song “Hanging Around” via its SoundCloud page. The band is expected to debut a number of additional new songs from the LP prior to the release of the record.
