Paper + Plastick Records announced that it will be releasing the first solo full-length record from Good Riddance/Only Crime frontman Russ Rankin. Rankin’s debut will be titled ‘Farewell Catalonia’ and it will be released on May 29th.
The album was recorded over the course of February 2012 at Buzzbomb Sound Labs in Orange, California with engineer Paul Miner. “Recording a solo album is completely different than recording with a band. I learned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses both as a songwriter and a guitar player,” Rankin said. “Watching these songs, which had gestated purely from myself with no collaboration, develop and grow has been an incredible experience.”
