Goodness is the upcoming album from Massachusetts emo/punk outfit The Hotelier. Due out through Tiny Engines, the 13-track collection follows 2014’s impressive Home, Like Noplace Is ThereIt was recorded at Machines with Magnets in Rhode Island last summer alongside producer Seth Manchester (The Body, Battles).

In March, we heard the LP’s driving lead single “Piano Player”. Today, The Hotelier are back with a second offering in “Soft Animal”. In the span of four minutes, the track packs in cathartic gang vocals, a rallying firestorm of an outro, and desperate searches for hope. “Make me feel alive/ make me believe that all my selves align,” frontman Christian Holden pleads.

Listen in below.

Goodness officially lands in stores on May 27th.
