It has been 11 years since we got Grandaddy‘s last album, Just Like the Fambly Cat. The band announced their breakup shortly before the album’s release, and though they’ve been in action again since their return to the stage in 2012, they’ve still been relatively quiet over the years. That’s all about to change with Last Place, due out March 3rd on 30th Century Records. The album has been described as “a symphonic swirl of lo-fi sonics and mile-high harmonies, found sounds and electronics-gone-awry mingling with perfect, power pop guitar tones.” For anyone who knows and loves Grandaddy, this an incredibly enticing thing.
The band will also be embarking on a neat little world tour starting in late February, taking them all the way until the summer, with European festival sets at Primavera Sound, Motel Mozaique Festival, and This Is Not A Love Song Festival.
After the jump, you can check out “Evermore” from Last Place and see where the band will be stopping this spring. This includes two shows at Portland’s Revolution Hall – one all ages, and one 21+. Word to the wise: just see both! Tickets for these two are here and here.
