Grandaddy Announces West Coast Shows This Spring

Reunited Band Touring The West Coast In Support Of First Album In Ten Years
Last Place Out March 3rd On 30th Century Records


Grandaddy have announced a select run of West Coast shows in support of their forthcoming album, Last Place, which will be released via 30th Century Records on March 3, 2017.  Last Place is the band’s first new material since 2006.  The tour includes a show at The Fonda Theater in Los Angeles on May 12.   The news follows the recent announcement of a one-off show in New York City at Le Poisson Rouge on February 28 that is now sold out. Two additional NYC area shows have since been added including the now-sold-out date at Rough Trade (March 2).  Tickets are still available for the band’s performance at Music Hall Of Williamsburg on March 1. These dates join a busy schedule of international touring including a UK tour and festivals such as Primavera. All dates are listed below and tickets for all US shows are on sale now. Tickets here:

Grandaddy recently debuted a brilliant new track from Last Place called “Evermore,” which can be heard HERE.  “Evermore” accompanies the previously released new songs Way We Won’t and “A Lost Machine.”

After Grandaddy broke up in 2006, Jason Lytle relocated to Montana, where he happily made two solo albums, and reconnected with the natural world around him.  Eventually, though, life uprooted him again, taking him to Portland, Oregon until he eventually returned to his former home of Modesto, California.  The return to California was practical (he needed to be near his bandmates) but also appropriate:  he had started writing songs that he felt would be fitting for another Grandaddy album.  The result, Last Place, is a perfect addition to the band’s celebrated, critically-acclaimed catalogue that includes their breakthrough sophomore album, Sophtware Slump, and their debut, Under the Western Freeway.  It’s a symphonic swirl of lo-fi sonics and mile-high harmonies, found sounds and electronics-gone-awry mingling with perfect, power pop guitar tones.  Lytle’s voice sounds as warm and intimate as ever, giving graceful levity to the doomsday narratives that have dominated the Grandaddy output.
