The Skinny: On February 26, 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). The band just premiered the new song “Blaze of Glory”, an incendiary track built on a surging Ginn riff and the hostile, combative vocals of Mike V. Check it our via the SoundCloud player below.
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.
Life is Too Short to Not Hold a Grudge features the traits of a benchmark release. Rarely is rock so pure and hard-hitting. 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 both Rolling Stone and SPIN’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.
