Inspiration for Introverted Extroverts came from the place the band wrote it, their hometown of Newcastle. Covering subject matters that highlight how they are fun loving party animals or completely isolated freaks who hate the outside world. Fresh off tour with punk-rock juggernauts, Violent Soho and back in Los Angeles, The Gooch Palms are excited to announce they’ll be returning to home soil this August to celebrate the release of their sophomore album, Introverted Extroverts with an East Coast tour. Introverted Extroverts is the ambitious new rock album by the Los Angeles-based, but still Newcastle through-and-through, The Gooch Palms. While keeping the band’s origin of cheeky, Newcastle-punk in the forefront, Introverted Extroverts sees The Gooch Palms get smarter, denser, and a hell of a lot more catchy.
Partners in crime, Leroy Macqueen (vocals, guitar) and Kat Friend (drums, vocals) knew things were going to be different for their sophomore album – not only had they managed to charm world-renowned producer and engineer Bill Skibbe (The Kills, Protomartyr, Fucked Up) to join him in his Brenton Harbour, Michigan studio, but Kat and Leroy had been building their momentum as full time musicians. Moving to Los Angeles at the start of 2015, the duo spent the good part of a year on the road; testing the audiences, growing into their live show and all the while, figuring out how to pay their bills living solely off of their music.
