Press ReleaseThe recently reunited Gameface has signed to Equal Vision Records and will release a 7” featuring two new recordings – “Come On Down” and “The Only Chance We Get” – on November 5. The songs will also be available through digital retailers such as iTunes and AmazonMP3.

“Come On Down” is a brand new track, while the latter is a new recording of a previously released song from Gameface's 1995 release, Three To Get Ready. The revamped version also now includes guest back-up vocals from Ingo Knollmann (Donots) and Mike McTernan (Damnation A.D.).

The reignited four-piece is currently working on their sixth full-length album, which is expected to be released in early 2014. A short video offering a personal look at Gameface’s recent decision to reunite and make their first new album together in over a decade, can be found HERE on Youtube, and also features clips of "Come On Down".

“We're beyond excited about the new material and a new chapter in our history,” notes vocalist Jeff Caudill. “We're so fortunate and grateful to Equal Vision for sharing our vision and giving us this rare opportunity for a new beginning."

“Gameface has been one of the constants in my life since the mid 90s, through the good times and the bad. Their music was always full of inspiration and spoke to me in a way that few bands ever have,” shares Equal Vision Records’ general manager and A&R Daniel Sandshaw.

“I was just a kid in 1995 when Three To Get Ready came out. I remember driving two hours to the closest record store that sold punk and hardcore records in order to get it. The album didn't leave my CD player for months. Everything about that record spoke to me and connected with my life in a way that I had never experienced before. I can still remember the way my life felt back then when I listen to the record now. That connection to the music was one of the reasons I wanted to work in the music industry. I wanted to be able to share music with people and have it change their lives in the same way that record changed mine. I am honored Gameface chose EVR to share their music with a new generation of kids.”

The Southern California-based outfit, now featuring Caudill along with Todd D. Trout (guitar), Guy Julian (bass) and Steve Sanderson (drums), originally formed in the summer of 1990 and has since released five full-length albums, each carrying the band's dynamic, distincitve sound that has gone on to influence countless bands over the years.

Gameface’s debut LP, Good (1993), showcased unabashed pop punk at its purest, while Three to Get Ready’s (1995) offered redemptive lyrics and a nostalgic tone that drew fans into Gameface’s emotional triumph over tragedy following the untimely death of their drummer Bob Binckley in 1994. With Every Last Time (1999), and the addition of drummer Steve Sanderson, Gameface hit their songwriting and touring stride. During the recording of Always On (2000) rifts between members deepened and original bassist Paul Martin eventually left the band before the album was released. Guy Julian joined on bass for their final album, Four To Go (2003), before the band members decided to each go their own separate ways following its release. In 2012, the group reunited for a string of shows that eventually served as the catalyst to forge ahead towards something more permanent. It felt right again as Caudill penned their new single, “Come On Down”, sealing the deal to embark on this next phase of Gameface.

Preorders for Gameface’s new 7” will be launching in the coming weeks, along with additional information on the band's upcoming full-length album.

Although familiar with, never got much into them, but it's good to see EVRs name next to a worthy notable band. Been a disgusting amount of years since anything good has been associated with em.
