Goodnight Gorillas are an alt indie rock four-piece from Minneapolis, MN. They write catchy, hard-hitting songs with introspective lyrics and sarcastic humor. Since forming in 2012, the band has steadily evolved their eclectic sound with each release. From math rock to shoegaze and a theatrical concept album, they continue to experiment between genres. Their next record to be released August 2019 merges many elements from their past work and showcases the group's high energy and melodic songwriting.
Goodnight Gorillas has independently released five studio albums. After two consecutive years of playing the University of Minnesota’s Spring Jam festival with artists such as Misterwives, Lizzo, and YG, they’ve continued to garner support from the local music scene. Most recently in March 2019, Goodnight Gorillas performed a live in-studio session at Radio K, the award-winning radio station of the University of Minnesota. Their latest full-length album, Splash!, is now available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music. It is their first release with guitarist Jake Braun since introducing him to the band in early 2018.
