Grooms are putting the finishing touches on their sophomore album. Prom will be out on Kanine Records sometime this summer, and the band has created a more mature, accessible album than their well-received debut Rejoicer.
The band slept in the studio in order to spend more time perfecting their ambient pop sound that has been favorably compared to Sonic Youth. Look for Prom sometime this summer.
In the meantime, Grooms will be on the road through March, including (like everyone else) a stop at SXSW. You can find them:
