Editors’ Notes

Off the Deep End reveals a good-time gang keeping the teen-beat bubblegum sound alive. Not that they’re a throwback to the Bay City Rollers, but the Fairfax, Virginia quartet’s catchy contemporary guitar-pop boasts heavily barbed hooks baited with sentiment sweeter than gummy worms. “Permanent Heartbreak” opens like an endearingly maudlin diary entry set to new wave- inspired power pop with a heavily auto-tuned singalong chorus. Although the title of “Suicide Sunday” hints at a heavy topic, the driving tune is actually an upbeat standout musing on loneliness and the kind of youthful ADD boredom compounded by not having a girlfriend to hang out with. Singer Andrew Goldstein’s breathy voice gets put to good use on “Stuttering,” a rocking insta-hit fueled by Cheap Trick-inspired melodies and the burning urgency of adolescent libido. The curiously titled “How I Met Your Mother” flirts with electro-pop, but of course no teenage album would be complete without a few swooning power ballads. The slow-dance friendly “She’s Finding Me Out” as well as the folkish “Can’t Take That Away” both deliver the goods.

Customer Reviews

You're like a very far shooting star

What can I say? I have enjoyed The Friday Night Boys since their first EP dropped. I have long awaited their new album and hyped the whole thing up in my mind. And let me tell you, this blew my expectations out of the water. The lyrics are deep when you actually listen to them and are accompanied by wonderfully catchy melodies. The sound: unique and pleasing to the ears. Songs like "Permanent Heartbreak" and "Stuttering" are sure to be big sellers. This is definately a must-get summer album that you don't want to miss out on. It was well worth the wait!

Off The Deep End

I was so excited to hear this new CD. When I listened to it, I was blown away. Not only has The Friday Night Boys music gotten better but they've grown as a group. I am absolutely in love with every song on the album. The only thing I wish they would have done differently is used all new songs instead of putting Molly Makeout and Sorry I Stole Your Gurl back on there. Although I do love those songs, I think it's time to move on from them. Other than that, I love it. It's definitely well worth the money!

love these boys <3

i am so glad they have a new album out...i have been so excited about it ever since falling in love with their ep after seeing them on the compromising of integrity morality and principals tour...good job boys :)


Formed: Fairfax, VA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

After logging several years as the guitarist for My Favorite Highway, Virginia native Andrew Goldstein left the lineup to start his own emo-pop band. He formed Friday Night Boys in 2006 and rounded out the lineup with bassist Robby Dallas Reider, guitarist Mike Toohey, and drummer Chris Barrett. Shows were infrequent at first; Goldstein had recently relocated to Harrisonburg for college, and his studies prevented him from booking many shows. Friday Night Boys did spend time recording their own songs,...
