Grandchildren were fortunate and talented enough to be critically embraced with their first full-length album (gran). The album melded a lot of elements from shoegaze and experimental pop to become something unique.
Building on their wave of good vibrations, the band just announced they will be out on the road this spring, including a batch of new shows with fast-rising O’Death.
Grandchildren might be hopeful that this spring tour goes a little better than their ’08 one, in which members came down with chicken pox, their van was broken into and they travelled through an epic blizzard.
