Travis Bryant (former vocalist of Terminal) and Matt Grabe (ex Thirte FS guitarist) are now official members of goodbyetomorrow. The band's first scheduled performance with the new lineup is April 21st in their hometown of Phoenix, Arizona @ The Hot Box. The band is currently at home writing and recording demos, and expect to head into the studio to record their Equal Vison debut some time in the late spring/early summer. The band will be playing one offs here and there before recording, so if you live near AZ/CA/NV, you may be able to catch them before they explode!

Message From MattSo last night we had the pleasure of attending the Saves the Day/Circa Survive/Moneen/Pistolita tour in New Mexico. What a great show...every single band killed it. This is probably one of the best shows I've been to in a long time...and Saves the Day was unreal.

We also got to listen to the new STD record. Holy shit, this band rules...always have, always will. I really respect them for never putting out the same record twice and once again, this is a Saves the Day that I haven't heard before. I...

According to their publicist, Minus The Bear keyboardist Matt Bayles will be leaving the band to focus on record production work. It was an amicable decision.

In other news, the band will join These Arms Are Snakes, The Blood Brothers, and Crystal Skulls for a hometown show at the Showbox in Seattle this coming January 28th for the Vera Projectís 5-Year Anniversary Party. Following the show, the band will release their new single, "Pachuca Sunrise," and tour all year and release a new video.
