Rise Records is pleased to announce the signing of Rhode Island’s MAKEOUT. The pop punk quartet, which has shared arena stages with Blink-182 as well as with Goldfinger and who performed at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival in the UK, will release their debut full-length The Good Life on September 29.
Get to know the band a little bit better by watching the video for “Crazy,” which is the infectious first track to be released from The Good Life.
MAKEOUT are Sam Boxold [vocals, guitar], Tyler Young [guitar], Alex Lofton [bass], and Scott Eckel [drums].
“The record sounds like a party,” says Boxold. “There are so many different influences touching it… That’s the kind of party we like!”
For The Good Life, MAKEOUT worked with multi-platinum producer and songwriter John Feldmann (Blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, Beartooth). They also wrote and recorded with 5 Seconds of Summer’s Ashton Irwin and Calum Hood, as well as legendary skinsman Travis Barker.
The album is packed to the gills with upbeat and unforgettable anthems with stadium-sized hooks that will take up residence in your brain for days at a time.
