Gouge Away return with vital new single ‘Idealized’

Gouge Away return with vital new single ‘Idealized’
Salad Days

The band’s first new music in three years surfaces today along with an east coast USA tour announcement.

Gouge Away make their triumphant return with their first new single in three years, ‘Idealized’. The song surfaces today along with the announcement of east coast USA tour dates in July and August. Of the track, Gouge Away comments: “We wrote this song in a Florida storage unit, somewhere on the timeline between tons of touring and the world shutting down. It’s a culmination of everything we like and always wanted to write, and fits the vibe of where we were at mentally at the time.” They continue “‘Idealized’ almost never saw the light of day but we like this song so much we felt the need to properly record it and put it out into the world. We have been absolutely dying to play it live.” Gouge Away released their debut album, ‘Dies’ in 2016 (pre-dated by two EP’s) and then unleashed their acclaimed Deathwish LP ‘Burnt Sugar’ in 2018. In 2020, the group released ‘Consider b/w Wave of Mutilation’ 7inch and have been quietly working on new material ever since. Look for more news from Gouge Away to surface later this year; in the meantime, catch them on the road in July and August.
