GRiZ US Ride Waves Tour: Season One

GRiZ at Red Hat Amphitheater

GRiZ will play Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh on Saturday, May 4. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday January 25 and will be available via livenation.com, the Duke Energy Center Box Office, Ticketmaster, and by phone at 800-745-3000.

Every time GRiZ puts his mind to something, it’s a moment. It’s a fleshed out idea, a fruit of commitment and passion, not an idea thrown at a wall and moved on from. Today, multi-instrumentalist, artist, producer, philanthropist and LGBTQ advocate, GRiZ, announces his sixth studio album, Ride Waves, along with a US headline tour, and releases a new single, “I’m Good.

Ride Waves is the culmination of the last two years for GRiZ––a period pillared by his own creative exile, high impact socio-cultural issues, and a slew of communities and relationships in which he has embedded himself. 

The 14-track LP sees Grant being immersed into the environments that have inspired his carefully curated sound. He tapped hip-hop favorites like Wiz Khalifa on “Find My Own Way,” and DRAM for “It Gets Better.” His sonic journey touched down in New York’s urban core to record with the Harlem Gospel Choir, stepped into Chicago’s South Side to collaborate with Chicago Children’s Choir, and spanned across many sessions in New Orleans. Snoop Dogg even sent in a verse from his studio in Long Beach. 

There’s truly something for everybody in the record. Each song tips a hat to Grant’s personality, and many parts of this represent moments of reflection. GRiZ and Matisyahu were in the studio just days after February’s Parkland shooting, and a song about gun violence, “A New Day,” became of it. The album parallels Grant’s core as a human; it’s about love and a need for peace. It’s just another piece to the puzzle that represents GRiZ becoming the positive force that mainstream electronic and popular culture need.

Ride Waves will be paired with a US album tour titled Ride Waves Tour: Season One, which kicks off in March and will be touching down in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, St. Augustine, Minneapolis, and more. Tickets go on sale to the general public starting Friday, January 25th at 10am local time at mynameisgriz.com. He will also be performing at a number of festivals this year including New Orleans Buku Music & Arts Project, Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and more.

Greta Van Fleet at Red Fat Amphitheater

A typical response for many listeners first hearing the hard-charging and harder-hitting rock of Greta Van Fleet may be to wonder what decade, exactly, produced these sounds. After all, songs like "Highway Tune" and "When the Curtain Falls" are so steeped in the stadium-ready sounds of the Who and Led Zeppelin at their mightiest and most muscular, it's hard to believe that they're actually the handiwork of three brothers from Frankenmuth, Michigan, whose birth dates coincide with the heyday of NSYNC and Britney Spears.

The second response, however, is not to care about any minor details of how, when, and why. What matters is the stunning ability of Greta Van Fleet to not only channel the majesty of rock gods of yesteryear but demonstrate that music's potency in the present. It's no wonder they've made a huge fan of Robert Plant — "They are ‘Led Zeppelin I,'" the singer said about these newcomers. Another admirer, Elton John, asked them to play his Academy Awards party in 2018. "They have an amazing future ahead of them," he told the assembled celebrities.

That seems like an understatement given the excitement already generated by Greta Van Fleet's uncommonly powerful live shows and a set of original songs that demonstrate the potential of the three Kiszka brothers — singer Josh, his twin brother Jake on guitar, and youngest brother Sam on bass and keyboards — and drummer Danny Wagner. "Highway Tune" and "Safari Song" both topped Billboard's Mainstream Rock singles charts in 2017, fueling further interest in the band's first two EPs, ‘Black Smoke Rising' and ‘From the Fires.' Yet for all their love of classic rock, their covers of songs by Sam Cooke and Fairport Convention prove their tastes extend beyond the confines of the genre.

Released in October 2018, Greta Van Fleet's debut full-length album ‘Anthem of the Peaceful Army' is further evidence that the Kiszkas are no retro simulation of a bygone rock golden age but a kick-ass band that's very much for the here and now.

Raleigh, N.C. (March 22, 2018) – Band Together NC, a Triangle-based organization that uses live music as a platform for social change, has announced the lineup for this year’s Main Event concert on June 1 at Red Hat Amphitheater.  The eight-piece soul band St. Paul & The Broken Bones will headline the show, with two opening artists to be announced soon. The event will benefit and celebrate the 2019 Band Together/Inter-Faith Food Shuttle partnership. The opening artist is Toots & The Maytals.

The Birmingham, Alabama–based rock and roll soul band- St. Paul & The Broken Bones formed in 2012, releasing their debut album Half the City in 2014 and its follow up, 2016’s Sea of Noise, to much acclaim. Those strong efforts helped place them on the national scene, and the band worked hard to prove they were no mere retro-soul band—from touring the world relentlessly, and including being selected to open for The Rolling Stones and headlining two nights at the Ryman Auditorium, to TV appearances including The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, Austin City Limits & two appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Paul Janeway’s fearless showmanship, thoughtful lyrics, and dedication to his performance soon became the band’s calling card, and paired with the inventive and skillful direction of co-band leader Jesse Phillips as well as a full eight-man roster comprised of some of the best young instrumentalists in the South, they soon became a must-see event. St. Paul & The Borken Bones are; Janeway (lead vocals),  and Phillips (bass and guitar),  Browan Lollar (guitars), Andrew Lee (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone) and Amari Ansari (saxophone).
 
Join Band Together and Inter-Faith Food Shuttle in raising over $1 Million to fight child hunger in the Triangle. Ticket sales, individual donations and corporate sponsorships to our 2019 Main Event concert will directly support the Food Shuttle’s new Child Food Hub, a dedicated 7,000 sq. ft.facility in Durham, to increase the impact of these Child Hunger Programs. In the next five years, this space will grow BackPack Buddies by more than 50% and increase School Pantries by 44%.

“Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to ‘Ventura’”  –Anderson .Paak

 

The album is his fourth as the acclaimed artist continues to work his way up the coast. With the announce of the new album also comes news of his biggest tour yet, produced by Live Nation with dates that include Madison Square Garden, Red Rocks and support from Thundercat on the entire tour and Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco and Jessie Reyez on select dates.
