Hello Destiny... is the sixth album by American Punk/Ska band Goldfinger.

Goldfinger (band) American punk rock/ska punk band

Goldfinger is an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1994. In their early years the band is widely considered to have been a contributor to the movement of third-wave ska, a mid-1990s revitalization in the popularity of ska. However, the releases of Open Your Eyes and Disconnection Notice saw the band shed most of the ska influence, and they have been more commonly placed in the punk rock genre in later years. Apart from the band's music, Goldfinger is also noted for their political activism, particularly in the area of animal rights.



On January 2, 2008, a track titled "One More Time" was posted on the band's Myspace profile. The band mentioned that their next album would be released in April of the same year. [4] In early April, the band appeared at the Bamboozle Left festival. [5] It was released on April 22, 2008 through SideOneDummy Records. [6] The single "One More Time" impacted radio on April 22, 2008. [7] Between mid-June and early August, the band toured with Less Than Jake on their Sleep It Off Tour in the US. [8] In February and March 2009, the band toured Australia as part of the Soundwave festival. [9]

SideOneDummy Records is an independent record label based in Los Angeles. It was founded in 1995 by Bill Armstrong and Joe Sib.

Thereafter SideOneDummy launched the careers of bands like The Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, Title Fight and others. Since 1998, SideOneDummy Records has also released the annual Warped Tour compilation album, which features music by bands playing on the current year's tour.
