Grandaddy at Outside Lands - 8/12/12 (via Jessica S.)
Grandaddy

Grandaddy, who reissued their first three albums on vinyl in 2011, fully reformed this year and kicked off with a reunion show at the intimate Partisan in Merced, CA under the name Arm of Roger, before beginning a larger tour of mostly festival dates (including San Francisco's Outside Lands) which they are currently wrapping up in Europe. They've been playing old favorites like "A.M. 180," "The Crystal Lake," "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot," and others, in addition to covering Pavement's "Here" at some of their shows. No NYC dates have been announced yet, but hopefully there will be one to come. You can check out some recent setlists, live videos, and a list of all remaining tour dates at the bottom of this post.

Frontman Jason Lytle recently revealed in an interview that not only are the band playing shows again, but that they will "probably" release a new record. Jason said:

If anybody knows anything about Grandaddy, they realize that my music and Grandaddy's music is slightly interchangeable, but I think if I was to focus on making a Grandaddy record, it's just gonna be like a full blown Grandaddy record. And I like the idea of it. I'd like to give it a shot.
Jason Lytle is also working on a new solo album, Dept. of Disappearance, which will be out on October 16 via Anti-. You can check out two tracks from that album, "Dept. of Disappearance" and "Your Final Setting Sun," along with the album's cover art and tracklist below. After returning home from Grandaddy's European tour, Jason will take about a month-long break before supporting his new album with a solo tour with Sea of Bees on the West Coast.

All lists of dates, videos, setlists, song streams, and more are below.

Granddady I remember seeing them in Atlanta and the people there thought they were huge but no one in NYC I knew had ever heard of them

@ 7:37 I was at that show! August 2002. Patrick Park opened. It was an awesome show, and was booked only because they were scheduled to play Bonnaroo NE, which was canceled after the Field Day fiasco.
