"Shawn Fogel has made it both his work and his creative context to dig into the recent past to explore the feelings and fears that preoccupied him. He finds a kind of resiliency in the contours of the song, 'You Go On And On', one that touches on the ways that hopes and dreams find footings or tragedy as they get spent." -Daytrotter
Fans of Golden Bloom will get to hear a whole new batch of songs this August when the band goes on tour with comedian Timmy Williams, from IFC's The Whitest Kids U' Know, and Boston band The Grownup Noise. This music and comedy tour begins on Aug. 17 at Brooklyn's Union Hall and wraps up on Aug. 28 at Schubas in Chicago.This is not the first collaboration between Golden Bloom and Timmy Williams.  The  Alicia J. Rose-directed music video for "Rhyme the Reason" features Williams in multiple roles, including an over-the-top newscaster and clown.  Check it out here.

Since 2009's debut full length, Fan the Flames, Golden Bloom has been solely Shawn Fogel's songwriting and studio project, with band members only for live performances.  Earlier this June, Golden Bloom live band members Josh Cohen and Jeff Patlingrao joined Fogel at a cabin in Maine for a week of collaborative songwriting.  Later this summer they will record new songs for the first time as a band, marking a shift away from Golden Bloom being Shawn Fogel's "one-man-band" solo project.

In various configurations, Golden Bloom has performed at CMJ, NXNE and SXSW, and shared the stage with David Bazan, Guster, and Robyn Hitchcock.  Fogel has worked with producers Peter Katis (The National, Mates of State), Roger Greenawalt (Ben Kweller), Dylan Magierek (Mark Kozelek) and Ryan Ball on Golden Bloom's debut full length, Fan the Flames and follow up EP, March to the Drums. His cover of The Philistines Jr's  "Working Title: The Mob Song" appears on the indie-star studded If A Lot of Bands Play in The Woods...

Timmy Williams is a comedian, actor and writer. He is one-fifth of The Whitest Kids U' Know, who made five seasons of their TV show on IFC. He also appeared on IFC's "Z-Rock," Adult Swim's "Fat Guy Stuck In Internet," and had his face cut out of a Target commercial. Timmy also does stand-up comedy all over the place and has written funny little things for Live Wire Radio and You may recognize him from Golden Bloom's "Rhyme the Reason" music video. He talks about cookies a lot on his Twitter feed @timmyisanerd. He lives in Los Angeles with his family and cat t-shirts.

Since releasing their self-titled debut in 2007, Boston's The Grownup Noise have evolved into a rousing indie- pop outfit, bridging the gap between americana and indie, who've shared stages with everyone from comedian Patton Oswalt to fellow avant-baroque musicians like The Dresden Doll's Amanda Palmer, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down (Kill Rock Stars), and acclaimed Canadian barnstormers Rock Plaza Central.
