Greys are currently streaming their upcoming ‘Repulsion’ EP via Soundcloud – take listen below. It’s officially out on October 30, 2015 via Carpark & Buzz Records, ‘Repulsion’ is now available for pre-order via Carpark in the US and via Buzz Records in Canada as well as on iTunes. If you want the vinyl, grab it quickly, because the EP is limited to 300 physical copies.
‘Repulsion’ sees Greys stretching their muscles, experimenting with dynamics and embracing melody while still retaining their knack for raucous squalls of guitar feedback. The change of scenery comes courtesy of esteemed Montreal recording studio Hotel2Tango where the band recorded with Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor) to create a more spacious, analog sound.
The band released their debut full-length ‘If Anything’ in 2014 via Carpark and Buzz Records. They spent much of the following six months touring extensively throughout North America and Europe, opening for Death From Above 1979 and playing festivals such as Iceland’s Airwaves and Primavera Club.
