Since they’ve all been doing other things for years now, I wasn’t sure we’d ever get new music from Goldfinger again. But over the summer it seems we did…kind of.
There’s a new album out now called The Knife. It’s Goldfinger in name, but with a slew of guests playing the roles of everyone not named John Feldmann.
On bass, Feldmann has recruited MxPx frontman Mike Herrera, while guitar duties are handled by Phil Sneed of Story of the Year. And on the group’s new LP The Knife, the drumming was handled by Blink-182 whiz Travis Barker.
As if that weren’t enough, The Knife also features a great deal of guests. Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus lends some vocals to the project, as does 311 frontman Nick Hexum. There’s also guest guitar from the Mighty Mighty Bosstones’ Nate Albert, drum work from Twenty One Pilots’ Josh Dun and an appearance from ONE OK ROCK’s Takahiro Moriuchi.
Thankfully even with all those moving parts it still manages to sound like Goldfinger, as you can hear on “Put The Knife Away”. In fact if I hadn’t read about all the new people, I’d have just assumed that they’d reformed as they were.
