“June 28th, 2005: Bryan and Matt are leaving The Brobecks. Unfortunately, Bryan and Matt will no longer be playing with The Brobecks (at least, for now) as they are pursuing other things. They left on good terms and remain friends with the rest of the band. It will be impossible to replace them, but Dallon and Mike are currently gathering a couple of people that will help keep The Brobeck name alive and they will continue playing and touring. There will be one last show for Matt and Bryan at Kilby’s 6th anniversary show on July 23rd. Say goodbye to the current Brobeck line-up and prepare for the future of The Brobecks. This is not the end of The Brobecks. It’s only the end of the first chapter.” – Brobecks.com

The Brobecks were in a bit of an awkward spot in 2005, losing half the bands lineup while finishing off some tours and sitting on new material. They announced new members on July 6th, Dave Chisholm on Keys & Trumpet and Nate Leslie on Drums. The newly reformed band went off on tour from August through September and during that they recorded their first EP with the new band members, self titling it The Brobecks EP.

The band did another tour in November and after this one said they would be hitting the studio to record their new album in the second week of January, and on February 26th they announced the album was complete. The band played a string of CD release shows with the first recorded being on April 15th, 2006 at Kilby Court.

When Dallon setup The Brobecks bandcamp page in 2012, he released versions of every album with only the songs he wrote & sung on them. For Goodnight, and Have a Pleasant Tomorrow Dallon couldn’t find the right cover art (and later said on facebook he never liked the original anyways), he instead used the famous Brobecks Wizard image the band used for button art.

The band themselves have some mixed opinions on this album, they were under a lot of pressure at the time and between personal conflicts and music business stress some of them felt unsatisfied with this release, with Dallon saying on bandcamp “I’m going to be 100% honest here. I don’t like this album. I’ll spare you the reasons why, but I guess I just didn’t have my heart in it when we made it. You may like it though, I have no idea.”
