Gringo Star (Album Release) w/ Lazy Genius + Elroy Meltzer

  • Gringo Star

    Gringo Star

    Alternative Rock

    The Atlanta, indie rock band, Gringo Start is thrilled to tour their new studio album, Back to The City, released on August 24th on Nevado Music.

    Peter Furgiuele, from the band says, “We really didn’t know exactly what we were gonna do when we got our buddy Dave to add some string melodies we had thought up for the song. We kind of hummed it out for him as best we could and when we heard the playback we were blown away and at that point we pretty much got him to play on every other track on the album. “

    The album is the band offering another fresh take of garage, psychedelic and classic rock and roll, this time even offering strings. Back To The City is the first album recorded with Gringo Star’s newest secret weapon – Joshua Longino who help swap on guitars, bass, percussion and vocals with the Furgiuele brothers. As well a first with some lush strings by Dave Claassen.

    Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shots pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals create the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems; psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti western weirdness. Taking cues from Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, Percy Faith, Sam Cooke, the men working on the chain gang—uh! ah!—they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.

    The band has toured relentlessly across the U.S. and Europe building a diehard underground following while sharing bills with everyone from Cat Power and Feist to The Black Angels and Weezer, and also touring with Wavves, Best Coast, And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, The Orwells, and fellow Atlantans The Black Lips.
