Listen to a new Rookie Of The Year song called "Save Me" on Purevolume. The Goodnight Moon: Part II will release independently on August 13th. The Goodnight Moon: Part II will officially drop on August 13th, and will be released independently. The album was produced by Steve Sopchak and Matt Malpass.
“The new record definitely starts off where The Goonight Moon ended,” continues Ryan Dunson. “There was so much more to talk about when that record was finished, so it was fun to bring back that style and emotion for Part II. Almost like a ‘new and improved’ rendition of Part I.”
