Epitaph Records is proud to announce the signing of Bay Area pop-punk crew Set Your Goals with plans to release their sophomore album on July 21st. The band recently wrapped up recording with Mike Green (Paramore, The Matches) and will be hitting the road with labelmates New Found Glory on a cross-country tour.
“Of all our options, Epitaph was our first pick and we’re very excited about having a great team of people behind us who will give this record the push we know it deserves,” said singer Matt Wilson. “We’ve put a lot of time into this and it’s reassuring to see that they believe in it as much as we do. The staff is very enthusiastic about working with our ideas and there is a dedication to our band here that we’ve never felt from any other label.”
Born out of the Bay Area punk scene, Set Your Goals released an EP in 2006 and their critically acclaimed, fan favorite full length, Mutiny!, later the same year. Immediately grabbing the attention of their fellow bands and fans, the group would go on to tour with the likes of Alexisonfire, Anti Flag and Saves The Day over the next few years. In 2007 the band was featured on the Punk Goes Acoustic 2 compilation and in 2008 they recorded Lil Jon’s “Put Yo Hood Up” for the Punk Goes Crunk compilation.
With fan anticipation for the group’s sophomore full length at an all time high, Set Your Goals have joined forces with punk’s most established label, and have their sights set on making their best album yet.
