From the Promoter
Warner Music recording artist Matthew Good has gone into the famous Bathouse Recording Studio to record new versions of select songs from his most iconic album, Beautiful Midnight. Good will celebrate the release of this EP, titled I Miss New Wave: Beautiful Midnight Revisited with a 28 date Canadian tour, in which he will perform Beautiful Midnight in its entirety. Good will perform at the Marquee Ballroom in Halifax on Saturday, March 25 at 9 p.m. Special guest is Craig Stickland.
Of the new EP, Good says “I’ve waited almost 20 years to reimagine these songs in the studio; I think I may have actually bettered what some consider my best work.”
Produced by longtime Good collaborator Warne Livesey, the new EP features brand new renditions of 5 classic songs from the triple platinum certified album, including “Surburbia,” “I Miss New Wave” and “Load Me Up,” which is still one of Good’s most played songs on Canadian radio. See below for the full track listing.

Beautiful Midnight was Good’s most commercially successful album, going on to sell over 300,000 units in Canada alone. In addition, the album was won the JUNO Award for Rock Album of the Year, and the Matthew Good Band received the JUNO Award for Group of the Year. What’s more, “Load Me Up” was recently selected by VICE as the #1 song on their “Completely Biased Ranking of the 60 Best CanRock Songs Ever” list.
