Toronto's Greys Reveal Debut EP, North American Tour Dates
While the press release name-checks Fugazi, Nirvana and Hot Snakes/Drive Like Jehu guitarist John Reis, it goes on to insist that, "they're no throwback band, however. Far from it. They simply display the raw, aggressive, yet artful and progressive traits bands haven't shown off in over a decade -- especially in their hometown. They play very, very loud rock music, and that's enough cause for applause."
Ultra Sorta will be available on coloured ten-inch vinyl via Concession Records on April 26. After that, Greys embark on a North American tour that will bring them through Ontario, New Brunswick, PEI and Nova Scotia, along with select appearances in the U.S.
All tour dates are available below, as well as a stream of the track "Black Lodge."
