LISTEN TO “FADE

Seattle’s Great Grandpa have shared “Fade,” the latest from their genre-defying debut album, Plastic Cough. The Fader, who premiered the track, are calling it a “catchy, emotional rock song” while the band says it’s about “the dulling of pleasure that comes with repeated exposure to the same experiences, locations, persons, etc and the small ways in which we struggle — and often fail — to find newness. It’s the feeling of knowing you need to make a change but not being sure where to start, constantly looking for the next rush. ”

Plastic Cough, which was mixed by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead, Pavement), is available for pre-order now and due out July 7th via Double Double Whammy.

Great Grandpa have also announced a full US Summer tour with Rozwell Kid that includes dates with Vundabar and Chris Farren. All dates below.

PRAISE FOR GREAT GRANDPA:
“’90s slacker-rock chord progressions; growing into moments of grungy noise; unraveling into poppy, palm-muted riffs; building and faltering; exploding and nearing silence with surprising precision.” –NPR
“Knotty, twisted and warm rock music that’s as melodically satisfying as it is, at times, confounding.” –Stereogum

ABOUT GREAT GRANDPA:
Great Grandpa began in Seattle in 2014 when guitarist & vocalist Patrick Goodwin recruited bassist Carrie Miller, drummer Cam LaFlam, and vocalist Alex Menne to form a humble rock band. Inspired by the pop-sensible alternative rock of the 90’s, and offset by a mutual love for noise and math rock, the group set forth to write and record their first EP.

During recording, guitarist Dylan Hanwright joined the group, solidifying the lineup. Great Grandpa began performing in the Seattle area in late 2014, frequenting the city’s DIY venues. In March of 2015, their debut EP Can Opener was released on Broken World Media. The EP was met with considerable praise, and has been described as “warm, slightly off-kilter grunge pop”, and “knotty, twisted, and warm rock music that’s as melodically satisfying as it is, at times, confounding.”

Great Grandpa began writing their debut LP soon after, and found themselves touring the western US and performing extensively in the Seattle area. Written in 2015 and 2016, Great Grandpa’s debut LP Plastic Cough continues to explore the sonic territory visited in Can Opener, exhibiting infectious melodies across a range of backdrops, from quiet bedroom-pop to explosive, anthemic rock. “The album was recorded in Seattle, WA with producer Dylan Wall and mixed by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, Blonde Redhead, Pavement, Low). Plastic Cough is out July 7th via Double Double Whammy.
