The UK's Goodtime Boys were named one of AP's 100 Bands You Need To Know this year, and they're about to make their presence known with Rain, their first proper full-length album.

Rain is a bit different from our older stuff and represents the changes our band has gone through over the last year or so,” says bassist Leigh McAndrew. After the arrival of two new members, they recorded Rain themselves with guitarist Lewis Johns before taking it to esteemed mastering engineer Alan Douches at West West Side.

Pre-order the album from the Bridge Nine Store before it's officially out on May 20, 2014.
