Toronto punks Greys, who we profiled ahead of the release of their February 2013 EP, Drift, have signed to Carpark Records, making them labelmates with Cloud Nothings, Speedy Ortiz, and others. Congrats guys! Carpark will release the band's debut album, If Anything, on June 17. You can check out the album trailer here and the artwork/tracklist below.
As discussed, Greys will be touring this year too. They'll be at SXSW for the Run for Cover/Brixton Agency party with The Front Bottoms, You Blew It!, Nothing and more; the Carpark showcase with Dylan Baldi solo (Cloud Nothings), Speedy Ortiz and more; and the Exploding In Sound party with Speedy Ortiz, Solids, Potty Mouth, Big Ups, and more.
They also return to NYC on March 21 at Shea Stadium with Roomrunner, Big Ups and Kal Marks (tickets), and are planning to reschedule this past Sunday's cancelled Brooklyn show with HSY and The Beverleys for some time in April or May. Stay tuned.
