So this is it. Lifetime achievement right here. It’s all come to this! Finally after 8 months of hard work, dedication, constipation, sweat, tears, beers, honey with lemon, coffee, a studio closing down, full time jobs and endless sleepless hours deep into the middle of the night my band Grey Wolves Grinhave released our first full length album! ALL ABOARD THE HYPE TRAIN! TOOT TOOT!
🐺 Hymns For The Hunt 🐺
(All the links are at the bottom, if you don’t want to read my essay then just scroll down and go to town on the links I’ve posted. Also we have had a delay with the online platforms, boooo, it will be coming to iTunes, Spotify etc ASAP but for Hymns For The Hunt is available on YouTube and Bandcamp!)
Hopefully you’ve heard the single and if so that only scratches the surface of the full record. We have an acoustic track, two ballads, lots of heavy rock, some of that normal rock, hard rock, mint flavoured sticks of rock, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, I did a piano, there is a Capella, basically you should listen to the album. We have a showcase of heavy guitar grooves, face melting solos, melodic vocal harmonies, booming drum beats and some pretty basic bass playing.
THIS IS HUGE FOR ME. LIKE MASSIVE.
This is the first album I’ve ever released, I’ve released EP’s before but this is the next level for me, life goal achieved! I’m so excited I can’t contain myself, hence this massive post AND we’ve sold over 100 tickets to the launch party tonight as well, honestly you all kick ass peeps, I’ll see you at The Louisianalater if you have tickets, if not then read on....
It means so much to me as this is the first album I have recorded and produced myself. Not alone that’s for sure, I had LOADS of help and continuous support from some truly excellent friends, Lloyd and Joe, you helped GwG out no end and the final mix is way more epic than what we ever imagined. Thank you both, I’ve learnt so much, next time I’ll only hassle you half the amount, so like 3 months of pestering yeah? Fanks.
Not only is this the first 11 track album I have played bass on this is the first 11 track album I have performed on vocally for the backing vox. Squeaky bum time for sure. FRRRTTT. After writing the lyrics with the gang (team effort!) and coming up with the backing harmonies (team effort!) in the practice room I have spent this last year practicing every second I can, at home (windows closed, doggo strange looks) in the car (windows closed, human strange looks) and at the studio (it has no windows, the band generally look funny anyway) to nail these harmonies and I can’t wait to belt it out at the show tonight! Does the Louisiana have windows 🤔
We’ve had so many people showing their support already, buying tickets, sharing our FB posts and helping get our name out there, we literally can’t thank you enough. Uber Mega Ultra Special thanks go to Gemma for our amazing album Artwork, Monika for our shiny new band logo and Colt for touching us up 😈
We’d also like to thank Audio Animals Ltd. for sprinkling that magical mastering dust over the album, they are absolutely brilliant and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for production!
And finally on a deep, lame and personal note, to top it all off I got to go through all of this with three of my greatest pals. True fact - Bassists don’t have friends. Attenborough knows this. Honestly guys because of our tight friendship, stupid banter (when are we recording drums Phil?) and constant practice laughs, GwG means more to me than a ‘hobby’ or ‘Weekly Activity’. I’ve never been in a band with such genuine and easy going people it really is worth practicing in a room along with Chris’s death farts. I’m truly grateful to be a part of this with you guys (and the real Joel) and this is just the beginning for us, now we have the album, the radio plays, the upcoming shows, the constant support from family, friends and fans we can get GwG right into every crevice, like right in the gert sweaty bits and make sure everyone has had a taste of our tunes.
OK I’M DONE.
