Greys’ “Outer Heaven” out today!

Greys’ “Outer Heaven” out today!

April 22, 2016 10:24 am

Outer Heaven is a massive leap forward for Toronto post-punks Greys. Delivering on the promises made on 2015’s Repulsion EP, the band tempers their trademark onslaught of discordance with new textures and subtle dynamics, building a more spacious and melody-driven environment atop their noise rock foundation. They fearlessly explore every extreme, simultaneously delivering their most intense and accessible moments, often within the same song.

The record is officially out today! Pick up a copy on the Carpark shopiTunes or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive a limited edition Greys postcard with the purchase of Outer Heaven, while supplies last.

Outer Heaven‘s heightened ambitions are best measured in terms of density rather than sprawl: the most bracing songs here pack in more radiant guitar textures, a greater lyrical depth, and sharper hooks without sacrificing Greys’ innate moshability and punk-schooled economy.” — Pitchfork
