They they have released two albums on Deep Elm Records,
2009’s ‘In A Forest Without Trees’ and 2010’s ‘No Words To Voice Our Hopes And Fears’

Goonies Never Say Die were featured as one of Alternative Press Magazine’s 100 Bands You Need To Know in 2010 Feature.
They have had songs featured on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 iPhone app and Teen Mom (MTV).

Barry Parkinson and Dan Kerr also play in the band ‘Dinosaurs Are Shit Dragons’

“100 Bands You Need To Know in 2010: Their celestial sway, tidal flows and undulating cinematic sound attracts fans of instrumental post-rock. ‘By the time we were playing gigs and started to get quite popular, it was a bit too late to add a singer’ says Goonies Never Say Die guitarist Barry Parkinson. ‘That whole post-rock genre wasn’t an influence; we just fell into it, but as we’ve gone along, we started writing more as an instrumental band than just a band without a singer.’ When they posted In A Forest Without Trees online, they were surprised to attract interest from listeners as far away as Russia, Japan and China. ‘We had 12,000 downloads in two hours. It crashed our website,’ Parkinson says. It also attracted long-running indie label Deep Elm, which signed them and will release the follow-up to In A Forest Without Trees in September.
