Russ Rankin talks about the return of Good Riddance and possibility of new material

Rich at Punknews.org recently conducted an interview with Russ Rankin of Good Riddance, who reunited a month ago and are planning to play some shows, including Ressurection Fest and D-Tox Rock Fest. In the interview, Russ was asked why the band decided to end their five year split and his response was,

“We hadn’t really thought about it in five years. We had tons of offers to play for pretty good amounts of money, some pretty good situations, but none of us were really just that interested in it and we had a lot of other stuff going on. Chuck and Luke wanted to meet for coffee to talk about it and I wasn’t interested in playing again, but I thought I’d meet up with them and hear them out. They made a lot of good points and I realized that we all really missed the songs – a lot. And we were all at places in our lives where we felt we could have a lot of fun, without too much pressure on us, and just get a chance to play those songs again.”

Russ was also asked if Good Riddance were going to record again:

“That’s definitely not in the plan right now – we don’t anticipate doing that. I can’t tell you for sure if it will ever happen, but…”

You can read what else Russ has to say here.

Good Riddance’s last album, My Republic, was released in 2006, a year before they announced their break up.
