Goldfinger ‘One More Time’ Video

Goldfinger are out with the video to their new single ‘One More Time’, off the Los Angeles punk rock group’s sixth studio album ‘Hello Destiny’, out now on SideOneDummy Records. Watch it via YouTube below.

Goldfinger Far Enough Along For A Best Of Album

Goldfinger drummer Dangerous Darrin Pfeiffer spoke with Melanie Sheridan of Australia’s Beat magazine and spoke about the band currently recording their Best Of album. Asked if it has it really been long enough to warrant such an audacious move, Pfeiffer responded, “Yep! It’s gotten to the point where we were like ‘oh my god, we’ve put out how many records [it’s actually five, not including the live ‘Foot In Mouth’ album or the Covers EP ‘Darrin’s Coconut Ass’, or the numerous singles they’ve had on fratty soundtracks from ‘The Waterboy’ to ‘American Pie’]. Well I guess we can make one. It’s kinda like a milestone of sorts. So anyway, we’re working on that right now, and we’re trying to figure out what songs are best to go on the record, because you’ve got four different guys with four different opinions, and then you’ve got the record label. So we’re trying to figure out what songs best represent us as a Best Of record. But I think it’s gonna be fun, and it’s gonna be cool.”

Goldfinger Bonds With Fanatics Employing In-Your-Face Assault

Blair R. Fischer of Metromix.com reviewed Goldfinger’s concert at the House of Blues in Chicago on Monday night. Fischer writes, “More than Goldfinger’s material—a Punk For Dummies brew of cranked-up, catchy melodies, sardonic self-loathing and potty jokes— it’s the band’s sweaty stage show that keeps ’em coming back for more.” Chicagotribune.com has since removed the article.

Goldfinger’s Feldmann Looks To A Production Future

Keith Carman of Chart magazine chatted with Goldfinger’s John Feldmann and asked him about his production work, where he’s becoming known as the hot producer thanks to work on albums like The Used’s debut.
“The older I get and with a wife and eventual family, I don’t think we’ll tour like we did in past years,” he explained. “I can’t stay in the studio all year, but I won’t go out as much. Maybe like NOFX where they do the Warped Tour every other year and that’s about it. Playing shows is great but the other 23 hours is hell, so I’d rather be in the studio doing something productive. I just love that aspect of putting things together like a puzzle or something. You start from scratch and you put together this great big collage of instruments or something like that. It’s awesome.” Chartattack.com has since removed the article.

Goldfinger Open Up Their Eyes

Chart magazine spoke with John Feldmann of Goldfinger who says the group has finally parted ways with their label, Mojo/Jive/Zomba. “‘Open Your Eyes’ is out on Mojo, but we don’t really have any relations anymore,” he revealed. “We’re all fine though. Looking back, we thought it was going to be kind of gnarly to work with that label because of the whole Backstreet Boys thing, but they were actually pretty supportive. We’ll never have Blink-182’s record sales and they continued to work with us for years.”

Fly Screen Features Goldfinger And Unwritten Law

This week’s edition of ABC Broadband’s Fly Screen includes the new video from Goldfinger ‘Open Your Eyes’, an interview with the group talking about the anti-meat eating video, how he listens to demo tapes, their thoughts on the Olsen Twins and why they were on one of their movies. They spend a day with Unwritten Law also to see their hotel room home away from home and what they packed for their Australia trip. The band were happy with the hotel they are in, since they are the “kings of getting kicked out of hotel rooms.” Abc.net.au has since removed the video.
