What happens when you lock three Brooklyn grunge veterans in a remote upstate New York cabin with no running water, an endless supply of beer and access to the best recording equipment you can find? A fuzzed-out doom rock masterpiece, apparently.
At least that’s the case with »Grits« – the new album coming July 29 from Brooklyn-based power trio Grandpa Jack, comprised of John Strom, Jared Schapker and Matt C. White.
“Once the bodily stink started to set in, we knew we were onto some saucy stuff,” says lead guitarist John Strom of the recording process. “Every aspect had a play on the product and »Grits« is a result that we are all very proud of.”
The album, recorded over the course of a week at Sonder House recording studio in Saugerties, New York, features much of the same heavy riff work, fuzzed out tones and dark lyrics that fans of the band have grown to love since they first formed in 2016.
To kick things off, the group will release the album’s debut single »Once Bitten« on June 23. Featuring energetic vocals and a heavy drum beat, »Once Bitten« centers around the feeling of being aware when someone in your life has bad intentions.
“I think Johnny, Jared and myself were all pulling from specific life experiences, but didn’t really discuss details,” says Matt C. White on the idea behind the track. “It was more of a shared vibe that we’ve all met people like that and we all sing gang vocals on the choruses to sort of drive that idea home.”
