Long Live The Goat

Chicago, IL

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away lived a couple of dudes…
Long Live The GOAT released their first music video, Drag, along with their debut EP, A Greeting From The Dark King in late October of 2015. These songs were debuted on a few Chicago radio stations including 93WXRT and 101WKQX. In February of 2016, the boys hit the road on the Southbeast Tour. Long Live The GOAT shared the stage with many great bands including All Them Witches at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. Their sophmore EP, Melt, was released later that year in September of 2016. Immediately after, Long Live The GOAT left for tour again going through Canada and the top half of North America.

“The guys keep things on the sedate side with a confident swagger exuding from within this fantastic reintroduction to their fiercely well-structured songwriting but they do manage to cut loose with a jaw-dropping, heavy effect-laden guitar solos” – Dragon, Metal Nexus
