Formed in September of 2012 by (former) Guitarist Donnie Calhoun, Goodnight Irene started as a garage project. He picked up (Drummer) Devan who until that point had never been in a complete band, and (Vocalist) Justin, who played in their previous band. (Taking Lives for Luxury) Along with (Guitarist) Tommy (formerly of Dear Disaster) After a couple of months Donnie and Tommy parted ways with Goodnight Irene, and the search began for a new guitar player. Justin and Devan recruited friend (Guitarist) Jai Jai (formerly of Embrace the Fallen, Only Flesh, Shoot to Kill) for Lead Guitar, and through mutual friends learned of (Bassist) Marilyn 'Carefeugan' Scott. Later recruiting (Guitarist) Dave (Chain the Scylla, *formerly* Taking Lives for Luxury) and (Guitarist) Ryan. After a few cancelled shows the band took hiatus, and is soon returning with a mind for the business, music, metal, and you- the fans. We couldn't do this without you. Thank you.
