Little Rock, Arkansas — “…from a young age, we are all taught that angels have wings, but the lucky ones of us find that they can also have fins.”
After the closing lines of the metaphoric eulogy Go For Gold vocalist Spencer Vinson delivers for Dirtbike the fish, listeners are greeted with nostalgic theme park memories through the bittersweet music video of ‘Snow Angels.’
‘Snow Angels’ is really about coping with how the world keeps spinning after you’re gone. So I had the idea to put it in a funeral home. Dirtbike was one of my first fish that I ever got, but he was apparently already on his last leg, so he pretty much passed after I brought him home with a couple of other fish. But we try to keep our videos pretty entertaining; in the video, I won the fish at a theme park and had the best day ever with him until he died. Dirtbike forever.
Followed by their single ‘Bloom,’ ‘Snow Angels’ is the fourth single from Go For Gold’s upcoming album ‘COPE’ produced by Nick Ingram (Beartooth, Hawthorne Heights, Like Moths To Flames, etc.).
“Snow Angels” is a lyrical metaphor for Time in the song. We’re questioning whether we did something impactful and spent our time wisely as we only get a small amount that flies by quickly. We make these imprints on the world, but eventually, they vanish just like snow melting. Everyone gets a little down sometimes, so writing these songs gives a little peace of mind with how you can feel about some topics that are a little too tough to tackle head-on.
The Eulogy and the Theme Park scenes of the Music video were filmed and edited by videographer Joe Lane of anointed media and were shot at Smith – Westbrook Funeral Home, Beebe and Magic Springs in Hot Springs, Arkansas respectively.
Go for Gold’s upcoming album COPE, set to be released on March 4th via Kontrolla Music Group, 2022, is about coping with different things that come about in life. The band tackles various topics and keeps it upbeat but also hits a little too close to home for some people, which could make it one of their best records.

More About The Band
Go For Gold got its start in Little Rock, AR in 2017 as a project with Spencer Vinson and Jared Williams. The band, inspired by Blink-182, Citizen, and The Story So Far, contains a high-energy, raw pop-punk sound. Williams needed vocal talent, so he asked Spencer to do it for fun and found his fit right there. In 2018, the two knew they wanted to make this more than just a hobby and started work on a full-length.
Go For Gold’s first album, Daydreamer, released in 2019 after being recorded in their garage, 100% DIY. Their first show in 2019 sold out a 200 cap venue, along with an album release show bringing in over 500 people who sang along and gleefully stage dived.
The band signed to InVogue Records prior to COVID hitting and shutting the world down. With the label, they released another hit single, “Let Me Go” and the Color Me EP. While quarantined, Go For Gold wrote a full-length album and recorded it with Nick Ingram (Beartooth, Hawthorne Heights, Like Moths To Flames, etc.). Now, the group has solidified its lineup and is eager to fill up 2022 with shows to entertain an audience with brand-new music.
