Greyhounds over on European soil for a select number of European shows13-06-2022
Austin band Greyhounds (the duo of Andrew Trube and Anthony Farrell) will finaly be over with "Primates"
The 10-track release is the most complete offering from the band with relatable, sometimes deeper than expected, lyrics put in front of a backdrop that flows naturally from start to finish.
The addition of a new producer could have been at the heart of the new tunes, at least according to vocalist/keyboarist Anthony Farrell.
“We’ve always produced our own records,” he said. “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 endeavors. 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!”
