Breaking the mold of traditional musical experiences, Ivy Gardens unleashes a belligerent musical atmosphere punctuated with sweat, sludge, and grunge. In 2021, Ivy Gardens embarked on a mission to create an album that mirrors their electrifying live performances—a fusion of relentless energy, unexpected surprises, and a euphoric climax. Their new album “Goon” is out now and it will take listeners on a journey through unexpected twists and turns. The band comments on the album:

“The time has finally come to release our baby into the world. A crazed, feral infant frothing at the mouth. A year in the making, this is our record, our voice. While our self-titled debut served as a mission statement, this follow-up takes things to a whole new level and we can’t wait to get in your ears. We consider Goon to be a historical document. At a particular point in space and time, somewhere in a sweaty basement in Southern Ontario, we achieved a sound. Sonic belligerence, and euphoria through volume.”

Since their first self-titled EP, Ivy Gardens has got bigger amps and tuned their guitars lower. They’ve written faster songs, they’ve written heavier songs. And then they hammered them out across Ontario and the east coast of Canada until they were beaten into shape.

“Goon” was mixed by Joe Zandwyk, mastered by Audrey Leyenhorst and the album artwork was done by Sebastian Hogg. Ivy Gardens operates under a golden rule: the “dollar to decibel ratio”. They almost exclusively use old junk amplifiers and speaker cabs. Old Peavey garbage, fished from some old fart’s garage jam space, is not only the secret sauce in their sound, but also the only possible way for them to accomplish the task of CRUSHING volume under a budget of $0.

“Goon” is a rip-roaring good time, and it can be experienced now on digital format as well as live during their upcoming tour dates (listed below). Those who enjoy Soundgarden, Kyuss, and Truckfighters should take note.
