Greys share new song “Blown Out” & its video, announce tour
Toronto noise-punks Greys announced their new LP Outer Heaven, a while back. It drops on April 22 via Carpark, and they've shared a new song "Blown Out" with its video. You can watch that below.
While the title of the song applies fittingly to the sonics here, with distorted vocals, deafening drums and fuzzed-out guitar, there are really a surprising number of classically hummable melodies woven into this thing. It's legitimately catchy, kind of like if likeminded Canadians METZ got in touch with their Cloud Nothings side. The striking video is pointedly Godard-ian, and highlights the issues of mental illness that frontman Shehzaad Jiwani evocatively wails about.
They've also announced tour dates for the spring, including some shows with Odonis Odonis and Two Inch Astronaut. They'll be in NYC for a record release show at Alphaville on April 25. Openers TBA for that one. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
All dates are listed along with the new video below.
