Could This Be The End album cover
October 18, 2019

Today's Golden Shoulders Fun Fact:
On this date in 2006, Golden Shoulders played a show at La Salle University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The college campus was beautiful and looked very, very expensive, and the surrounding neighborhoods were all worn-down and impoverished. So instead of singing songs to the audience, we just kept yelling, ''THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH AMERICA!!!!'' to all the rich kids.

We were not invited back.

It's 2019 now. That seems so futuristic. Like we should be communicating through computers by now or something.

You can see our tour dates in that little box down there to the right; if we're touring, please come see us and bring a thousand friends. And suggest to your friends who live in towns where you don't live that they come see us too. If we have fun on tours, we'll tour more often. We're simple people that way. Other ways too.

Our latest full-length album is called "Could This Be the End," and it was released on September 13th. It's got 14 songs, and it's as upbeat and peppy as the title suggests. It's available from your local record store, the iTunes Music Store, the Amazon Music Store, Spotify, etc., etc. If you're looking for physical copies, this one is available as a CD and also an LP, and you can get those from us or from CDBaby. We hope you like it, on account of how long it took us to make it! Yikes. Ten years between albums, man. Unacceptable.

Really, if you want to listen to most of our music from the past 17 years, and we hope you do, you can get all of our recordings from the iTunes music store or on the popular Spotify music streaming service. Even the weird ones.

Questions and extravagant cash donations can be sent to You can find us on the once-popular Facebook internet service, if you're into that. Feel free to find us there. Be good!
