"Cover Story"

"The GoStation: locals love them and the world is waiting for them. But this is not your typical word of mouth story, and this is not your typical band. In fact, it just may be the beginning of the best success story yet." - Underrated Magazine

"CD Review"

"Musically, the GoStation is ready to join the Killers in taking the next step to world domination. (Major labels: take note.)" - allmusic

"CD Review"

"It is quite surprising that this is The Gostation's first effort, as their stylistic congruity and polished songwriting are usually examples of a band reaping from earned experience." - ObscureSound

"CD Review"

"This is everyday music, in the sense that not only could it be listened to every day, but that it encompasses everyday things. The only part that isn't everyday is the actual music. It's once in a lifetime, and you're next in line to hear it." - onetimesone

"CD Review"

"The GoStation is going places." - Plackback:stl

"Radio Interview"

"Good things are going to be happening for The GoStation, I have no doubt. If not, there's something wrong in the world." - John Richards, KEXP

"Video Interview"

"Not only do these guys bring all the quality of their album with them when they step out — they also have an incredible stage presence." - OurStage

"Live Review"

"The lads in The GoStation, while not possessing the gaunt affected chic of Brit boy bands, have their sound down pat - in every way that is poppy and fun and not drunk and drugged out. Their songs have a vibe that would be just at home at the Knitting Factory or The Factory." -

"Live Review"

"The GoStation have three great things about them: lots of energy, hooks reminiscent of your favorite britpop tunes and a great lead guitarist. Keep an eye on them." - Melody Nelson

"CD Review"

"There's a buzz brewing around this band, and for once you can believe the hype." - Sellout Magazine


Quiet Zone EP
All Together Now, single
Passion Before Function, album



Transporting listeners to a place where melody reigns, cultures clash and combine, and feedback fills the sky, The GoStation is a state of mind as much as a band. Hailing from New York City, this five-piece force is on a musical mission to restore rock to its rightful place — the hearts and minds of the people.

Embracing the art of the anthem, The GoStation have willfully eschewed the structureless noise of many of their contemporaries, opting instead for epic compositions marked by masterful guitar interplay, a steady rhythmic punch, and huge sing-along choruses. Calling to mind everyone from Oasis to The Strokes by way of U2, the band are far more concerned with reviving the classic art of songwriting than becoming the darlings of any fickle scene.

The GoStation fired the first shot from their arsenal with the release of their debut EP, Quiet Zone. The disc's five songs received major support from outlets as diverse as Seattle's KEXP, NYC's 92.3 K-Rock and Q104.3, XM and Sirius satellite radio, and Performances at CMJ, SXSW, and the NEMO festival followed, along with in-studio appearances, a spate of rapturous reviews, and shows with bands including The Dears, Young Love, Diamond Nights, White Rabbits, Sons & Daughters, The Bravery, The Mooney Suzuki, The Upwelling, Locksley, and Elefant.

But the EP was just a teaser for the real fireworks: the release of the first full-length album from The GoStation, Passion Before Function. To bring this long-awaited project to life, the band once again teamed up with producer/engineer Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, The Flaming Lips, Phantom Planet) to record amidst the cacophony and hysteria of their native metropolis. Over a year in the making, the album finally brings the sounds that have been living in our heroes' heads to full, sparkling life.

Kicking off with the feedback-drenched crescendos of lead single "All Together Now," Passion Before Function plays like a sonic rollercoaster, racing to transcendent peaks and spiraling into tumultuous valleys. From the bittersweet lift of "Not Enough" to the schizophrenic, horn-riddled euphony of "Common Ground," and from the ominous rumble of "Next in Line" to the string-drenched strains of "When I'm Gone," The GoStation have emerged with an album that once-and-for-all truly defines their aesthetic of towering, layered songs, designed not to split the masses into fractions, but to bring them together as one.

If you've been waiting for something, anything, to save you from the vagaries of daily existence, this is your chance to escape — even for a little while. And it really couldn't be simpler. Just press play, and let the music do the rest.

We'll see you there.
