Goodbye Forever

Album: Seal The Deal & Let's Boogie (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features the Harlem Gospel Choir. Guitarist Rob Caggiano told Metal Hammer about Volbeat's decision to work with the gospel choir on the track:

    "It's the first time the band has done anything like that, but it's still a straight-up Volbeat song. It almost has a – dare I say it – Mumford & Sons kind of vibe to it. I was definitely a late bloomer on that band and I didn't like them for a while – I think I even tweeted once about how all their songs sound like Dukes Of Hazard car chases. But now I actually think they're amazing and I love everything that they do. Michael (Poulsen) is really into them as well, so I think they might have rubbed off on us a little bit on this song."
