Sleeping on Silver. One band, one stint in Atlanta, and one major car crash later Goody is back home in Austin. Joining forces with guitarist Barry Casebeer whom he met in Atlanta, bassist Chad Neely and fellow mid-westener Jason Lewis to share their contempt for everything that is aurally good and holy. After 6 short weeks they have penned 8 original songs that meld Goody’s penchant for songwriting with the powerful counter-melodic abilities of the rest of the group. The band is fully-charged…with only a tire to change before they ascend united to 33rd level freemason.
