It’s official. Griswolds will be heading back into the studio on June 14th.
It’s been quite a while since we updated the site so I figured we’d better get everyone up to speed on whats happening in the Griswold world.
First off, Tim and I had a blast last night at the Tri-State Indie awards. Even though we didn’t technically win an award it was great hanging out with a bunch of other bands and industry folk we haven’t seen in a while.
So, as a lot of people already know, Griswolds have been on a temporary hiatus since our last show with the Supersuckers. With two members out taking care of busted knees and family issues we had to put Griswolds shows on hold for a little. While it may be a while til we’re back on stage doing what we do best, we will be planning two new releases being recorded in the spring time to keep everyone satisfied.
First will be the “Back to the Future” single including the original studio version from “Godzilla Vs. America” as well as two alternate lyric versions (That’s right, three movies = three songs)
Next will be another three track EP of new songs, two of which we’ve played in our set lists but one being a completely unheard track for all our fans. We’ll leave ya with a little suspense on that one for now, but we’ll be letting out some more information as recording gets underway.
As always, we thank all our friends and fans that have supported us throughout the last year and a half. We can’t wait to get back on stage and kick some more ass.
Griswolds have been nominated for the Tris-State Indie Punk Band of the year… head on over and vote here!
Thanks to everyone who came out to party with us, The SUpersuckers and TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb last night. We had a great show, made lots of new friends & fans and had a great time. Can’t wait to rock the North Star again in the future! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
If you haven’t heard by now, We’re going to be supporting The Supersuckers Thanksgiving eve at the North Star Bar in Philly. Come party with us, the Supersuckers and TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb on one of the greatest party nights of the year!
tickets can be purchased at the door or online: http://www.ticketfly.com/event/147277/
Make sure to say you’re here to see the Griswolds at the door and don’t forget to pick up your copy of “Godzilla Vs. America” at the merch booth
Less than three months after the official release of “Godzilla Vs. America” we will be heading back into the studio to record a 5-track EP specifically for our newest song “Broad Street Bullies” which, as you guessed it, is about the toughest, roughest, meanest NHL team of all time. Look for it before the year is done. We’ll be updating with some extra special info on the other tracks as things progress.
Great night as always at the El bar in Fishtown. This time Follow by Numbers, Welter and Scare-ho accompanied us in one hell of a night of rock and roll.
Well… things don’t always work out as planned… The original location for the video shoot has been fenced off and locked down, so we’re back to the drawing board at looking for a new perfect location for that video shoot.
On July 29th, The Griswolds will be going on location in beautiful, sunny downtown Pottstown, PA to record a music video for the title track of their brand new album, Godzilla Vs. America. Watch for it in early August!
We’re stoked to play the Astro Monkey BBQ XII this year. As always, there are a lot of great bands that we’ll be sharing the bill with. Not to mention a bunch of cool cars/motorcycles/beer!
