Formed in 2007 by Shannon McMurray (guitar), Ben Hinch (bass/vocals), and Hale Savard (Drums), The Good Fiction has put out an impressive catalog of music. Beginning with their debut EP 'Paso', their music has been well received in the U.S. and in Europe where they completed their first international tour in 2008.
Their follow up EP 'Blue Sky Money' was supported with a second tour to Europe and now they are releasing a full Length album entitled 'Escape Pod'. The band wears their influences on their sleeves echoing back to the likes of Elvis Costello and finding common ground with new bands like The Gaslight Anthem and The Hold Steady.
With these kinds of reference points it's no wonder that the band puts the quality of their songwriting above anything else. And you can hear nothing but passion in their performances on the stage and on tape. With sharp arrangements and intelligent lyrics, the new record 'Escape Pod' leaves you with the feeling that there is renewed faith in songwriting and value in the thankless art of rock and roll.
