The Good Life’s previous album, Help Wanted Nights, was released in 2007 and earned the band positive press attention. After touring in support of the record, and playing a handful of June 2010 shows, the band dispersed to focus on other projects – Cursive and solo albums for Kasher, Big Harp for Drootin-Senseney, the bands Conduits and Oquoa for Lewis, and solo material and a tape label, Majestic Litter, for Fox – but always planned to regroup for another album. Everybody’s Coming Down was written mainly in late 2014, and The Good Life played a few shows that August, October, and December to road test some of the new songs. Recording began in January 2015 at Omaha’s ARC studios and finished in the quartet’s respective homes, which are scattered across the US: Chicago, IL (Kasher), Omaha, NE (Lewis), Los Angeles, CA (Drootin-Senseney), and Portland, OR (Fox). The band then traveled to Dallas, TX to mix with John Congleton (St. Vincent, Baroness, Angel Olsen, Cloud Nothings) at his Elmwood Recording.
