Grizfolk Share “Hurricane” + Firefly Music Festival June 21
June 14, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Alternative rock band Grizfolk share album track “Hurricane” ahead of their appearance at Firefly Music Festival next Friday, June 21st. The song is from their upcoming full-length album, Rarest of Birds, out July 19th, and the band will celebrate its release with a hometown show at LA’s The Troubadour, followed by a run of west coast headline dates that take them through Phoenix, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco and more (full list below).
Of the album, the band says, “Listening to ‘Rarest of Birds’ should feel a bit like looking through a kaleidoscope of fleeting moments…a glimpse into our yearning for truth and answers within and without. Written in some of the darkest times, it was a vehicle out of addiction and depression. It was a one-way ticket out of a personal hell, purchased by the heart and paid for with love, light, and dedication.”
Rarest of Birds was recorded at producer Allen Blickle’s Venice, CA studio, where the band embraced more organic instrumentation and moved away from the synth-heavy vibes of their previous release. That result is the grandest statement of their career and points to a new, better Grizfolk — healthy, poised, and together.
Based in Los Angeles and Nashville with roots in Sweden, Grizfolk burst onto the scene in 2014 with their debut EP, From the Spark, followed by the Waking Up The Giants full-length in early 2016. Their catchy blend of electronic-tinged folk rock and pop styles caught the ears of fans around the globe, and Grizfolk quickly amassed millions of streams and listeners from all corners of the world. However, as their name grew, the band — Adam Roth (lead vocals, guitar), Sebastian Fritze (keys and vocals), Fredrik Eriksson (guitar), and Bill Delia (drums) —soon began to face demons and dilemmas of varying shapes and sizes, from alcohol dependence to interpersonal and familial problems to romantic relationship breakdowns and beyond. But just as their music was providing joy and escape for their fans, the bandmates realized that in songwriting lay their own redemption and deliverance, and that by flocking together they could endure to create positive, hopeful sonic messages to save themselves in the process.
