The Griswolds announce US Tour Dates

the griswolds, indie rock, be impressive
Australian band The Griswolds have confirmed a U.S. headline run this June. The dates include stops at New York’s Bowery Ballroom and Los Angeles’ Troubadour
as well as a performance at the Firefly Music Festival. The Griswolds are currently on a massive nationwide tour with Walk the Moon. Watch the live video from last year’s Australian summer tour here and see below for routing details.

“If You Wanna Stay,” the latest single off the band’s debut Be Impressive, is impacting Alternative Radio, where it debuted at #18 on the SiriusXM’s Alt18. Listen to the track here:

“If You Wanna Stay” is the follow up to the band’s top 15 debut single “Beware the Dog,” which has approximately six million worldwide streams, was featured as #4 on Billboard’s “Year in Music: The 10 Best Rock & Alternative Singles” of 2014, #28 in the Triple J Hottest 100 list and #5 on the SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Alt 36 end of year countdown, featuring the best 36 songs of 2014.

The band continues to celebrate Be Impressive, out now on Wind-up Records. The album, produced by Tony Hoffer (Beck, Foster the People, M83), was released last year to immediate acclaim with Vice’s Noisey blog hailing the music as “hypnotic and brilliantly balearic,” and Paste saying the band is “on track to make a splash with their catchy, rock-infused pop sound.” The New York Observer also chose Be Impressive as one of the “10 Best Debut Albums of 2014.”

The Griswolds was born at a Sydney house party where Whitehall challenged friend Daniel Duque-Perez (guitar/synth) to write a riff on the spot. Duque-Perez explained, “Chris thought that riff was really fun and interesting, and it turned into our first single, ‘Mississippi.’” After an EP and forays to the U.K. and U.S., the band—Whitehall, Duque-Perez, Tim John (bass) andLachlan West (drums)—were itching to record a full-length and signed with American super-indie Wind-Up Records. “You only get to make one debut album,” says Duque-Perez, “and we wanted to make ours as impressive as we possibly could. Working hard and late nights mean nothing when you’re working on something you love. So ‘be impressive’ became something we thought about all the time.”
