Grandaddy share “Evermore” from new LP, add second NYC show (tix on sale)
Grandaddy have shared "Evermore" from Last Place, the reactivated band's first record in more than 10 years. The song's pulsing, droning synth hook works well with Jason Lytle's bummer-lite dystopian daydream lyrics. He told NPR about the song:
I have no idea what the song is about but I really like the imagery of sad dirty trees that live by the freeway and throwing stuff out of commercial airliners. Also the line 'When remembering is what forgetting's for.' It's kinda high-school-corny poetry, but I still like it a lot.
You can watch the video for "Evermore" below.
Meanwhile, Grandaddy have added a second NYC show, playing Rough Trade on March 2 and tickets for that show go on sale today at noon. (Their 2/28 show at Le Poisson Rouge is sold out.) The band's only other announced U.S. show at the moment is San Francisco's Noise Pop Fest which happens right before the NYC shows. All dates are listed below.
