Following the departure of founder member and guitarist Marc Norris earlier in the year the band have now appointed Dominic Knight as a permanent replacement.

On October 11th Eighties Matchbox release a new single, ‘So Long, Goodnight’, taken from their third album ‘Blood and Fire’ released earlier this year to great acclaim, after a six year hiatus. The single on Black Records, will be available on vinyl and as a download

‘So Long, Goodnight’ is the band’s first ever ballad.
“To me it really reminds me of the whole Beat Generation mentality,” frontman Guy McKnight explains, “and how that filtered down through folk, someone like Bob Dylan, which then transformed into rock music and how that whole beat generation philosophy is basically a strain of proto-punk. ‘So Long, Goodnight’ reminds me of a road movie. It’s definitely an anti-hero ballad.”

“'Blood + Fire' is a barefoot stomp over the members of the past, it's one helluva triumphant resurrection”. The Fly 4/5

“An album which might well claw back the band's crown as Britain's premier purveyors of filthy, black-hearted rock 'n roll.” Artrocker 4/5

“This album is a dark-hearted joy and reinstalls the band as the UK's premier proponents of psychobilly-punk.” Kerrang 4/5

“Absorbing on an almost parasitic level.” NME 7/10

“It's brilliantly inventive and heralds a terrific return from a great band.” Loud+ Quiet 8/10

“Few bands are as unique as Eighties Matchbox and even fewer are as consistent, this is another triumph for the Brighton mob.” Rocksound 8/10

“The longer the EMBLD defy the whims of fashion and refuse to die, the more they feel like a minor national treasure.” The Independent on Sunday

“South Coast swamp rockers return with a vengeance.” Uncut 4/5
