Grandchildren and O’Death Announce Spring Tour

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.

Country Mice Make Their Way To Several Major Cities

Jason Rueger spent most of his youth in rural Kansas, walking dirt road paths, working and living off the land. So, when he decided to move to Brooklyn, his family was understandably shocked. It didn’t take long for Rueger to justify his move though. In only a few months time he had teamed with fellow Midwest transplants Ben Bullington (guitar) and Kurt Kuehn (drums) to form Country Mice.

This spring the band, which also includes upstate New Yorker Mike Feldman (bass), will release a new single “Festival” on March 28 and their debut album Twister on June 7th. They’re also touring in support of their new material. Dates are down below.
