One of Ballarat’s most successful exports, Epicure, have joined forces with Heart of the Rat Records to re-release their classic album ‘The Goodbye Girl’.
The quintet released Armies Against Me, the 1st single from their sophomore album, in 2003. Arguably Epicure’s most successful and well known track, Armies spent months on the Triple J playlist and was continually amongst the most requested by listeners of the National broadcaster. The song remained in the ARIA top 100 singles for weeks and was voted at #21 in 2003’s Hottest 100 Countdown.
‘The Goodbye Girl’ also featured Life Sentence (also part of 2003’s Hottest 100), So Broken and Self Destruct in Five, which was voted into 2004’s most popular 100 songs on Triple J in 2004.
Frontman & principle songwriter, Juan Alban remembers this time of the band’s career … “It was a pretty magical time… we were doing all the things we grew up dreaming of…”
There is no disputing that “The Goodbye Girl” was a fan favourite. This vinyl will fly out the door so make sure you get in fast and place your order.
