Psychedelic pop-rockers Grandaddy have reformed and are set to release their first new album after a decade-long hiatus.
For those of you unfamiliar, Grandaddy was formed in Modesto, Calif., in 1992 and consists of Jason Lytle, Aaron Burtch, Tim Dryden, Jim Fairchild and Kevin Garcia. They had their initial breakthrough with their 1997 album Under the Western Freeway and single “Summer Here Kids.” The band released three more studio albums, including 2000’s well-received Sophtware Slump, before splitting up in 2006.
They reunited in 2012, but only started releasing new music last fall. “Way we Won’t” and “Clear Your History” marked their first new songs in over a decade. Now, armed with a new release, Grandaddy is ready for a full return.
Grandaddy will be performing in Vancouver at the Imperial theatre on May 7. You can buy tickets here.
