Album Information

"Audio of Being" was the last album released by the Matthew Good Band. It was released on October 30th, 2001.

The recording of this album was reported to be very stressful for all members of the band. Guitarist Dave Genn referred to the process as "taking a long and painful shit." Front-man Matthew Good was very ill during much of the sessions. The tension between the band continued to grow and even caused Genn to leave the band only to return a short time later.

Ultimately, the band reached the breaking point shortly after the album's release and parted ways. Rich Priske stayed on as the bassist for Matthew Good's subsequent solo career. Although it is widely believed that the band breaking up was a turbulent and almost violent occurrence, Matthew Good has stated that, although it was less than amicable, it was not nearly as bad as the rumors suggested.
