If you listen to the whole of this debut by Fort Wayne’s own Thank You And Goodnight without taking a longer glance at the liner notes, you’d never guess that the pounding first number, “Tragedy,” is a cover. This pounding modern riff-rocker’s origins lie with the late Ohio-based Christian emo-rockers Fare Thee Well, and this song is an inspirational barn burner that never lets up. It’s a testament to TYAG’s skills as songwriters and heartfelt performers that the rest of the disc (all originals) keeps the pace.
From the relentless punch and monster hooks (and deceptively calm opening stanza) of “anelegantdisguise” to the combination of crunchy, soaring vocals and keyboards (courtesy guitarist/keyboardist Chad Deutsch) on “Remember Me,” this band crackles with energy to spare — even when vocalist/guitarist Brock Andrews seems to have reached his limit. This disc reflects the hunger of a young band that’s putting every ounce of feeling into what they play, and it shows. If their live shows put out the same sheer wattage that emanates from these songs, TYAG will win new fans every time.
“Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater” might sound cheeky on paper, but the song’s delivered with absolute conviction. The drive is propelled in no small part by drummer Brett Lay and bassist Phil Arthur, and the production is a great blend of polished and in your face.
If you’re gonna mix melody, aggression and sheer riffage, you’d better be able to back it up with musicianship and conviction. Thank You And Goodnight succeed on both counts, and that’s what makes this disc a life-affirming listen. If you want to hear rockin’ tunes with melody and a fierce uppercut, you’ll dig it. If you’re a kid with a guitar and you’re thinking about starting a band, here’s a fine example.

TYAG released the demo "I Wrote This Song For You" digitally and are working on other ways to get their music out there.

Currently TYAG has released two of the songs off their upcoming EP "Thank You..." on their Facebook and Myspace page. "Thank You..." is scheduled to be released on the 27th of January.



Thank You & Goodnight began as a solo project which spawned from the mind of lead vocalist Brock Andrews. His love of music, and desire to play music professionally for others drove him into the studio with 5 songs. He recorded TY&G's first EP in the studio with long time friend Chad Deutsch. Upon completion of the album, Andrews recruited Chad for lead Guitar, and Keyboards, Phillip Arthur on Bass, and Brett Lay behind the kit. The quartet quickly perfected their live performance, and began playing shows regularly. However, in December of 2009, due to disagreements on where the band was headed, the group disbanded, leaving Andrews to re-form TY&G.

After months of searching, and a few different line-up changes, the band seems to have found their final line-up. Caleb (originally a guitarist) switched from the bass guitar and quickly found his place behind his six-string. The addition of Daxton Koons on bass, and the final addition of John "Johnny" Walther on the drum kit, the band have been practicing relentlesly, and writing new material to add to their arsenal of catchy hooks, driving beats, and meaningful lyrics that has become ThankYou&Goodnight's driving force for the past year.

Thank You & Goodnight are scheduled to go into the studio this fall to record a new EP with producer Jason Andrews of Spotlight Studios, and hope to have a full length album put out by summer of 2011. Check back for more on the band as they continue to make music for you to enjoy.
