Greyhounds move their European tour to 2021; new song "Tune In" out now30-04-2020
At the dawning of a new decade, Austin band Greyhounds (the duo of Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell) are set to release their new album Primates, marking the 20th year of their brotherhood. With this release the band would have been over on European soil in June but everyone involved decided to move this all a year ahead. Today we can announce most of the dates have been rescheduled to June 2021.
Primates is a dialect of the human soul - a musical language that reaches across all borders, beyond all differences - to address personal relationships, class struggles, culture wars, and the disconnectedness of modern living. Trube and Farrell conjure vibrations of those who have come before, while remaining aware and inspired of what the future will bring. Primates is also the first Greyhounds record to use an outside producer, and to be tracked at their new East Austin studio Bud's Recording Services.
"We've always produced our own records," says vocalist/keyboardist Anthony Farrell. "But we knew we needed to stretch our sound on this record to reflect the scope of what we are trying to say. We brought in producer/multi-instrumentalist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Flesh Eaters, Deer Tick). We've known Steve for a long time, but it can be difficult to let go of your control in creative endevors. However, our immense respect for him as a musician, as well as a human-being, made it easy to trust him. He opened up a lot of musical doors that we didn't know existed. Plus he gave us a thorough education in Mezcal!"
Primates will come out worldwide on award-winning Austin record label Nine Mile Records. More info on the release to follow. The first single - "Tune In" - you can already listen here. Rescheduled tour dates you can are listed down here:
