THE CADILLAC THREE LAUNCH HILLBILLY HYPNOTIZED TOUR IN 2022

in Featured Events by

THE CADILLAC THREE keep it funky with their bold live show and genre-fusion tracks rooted in Country storytelling, Rock grooves and psychedelic jams they grew up on in Nashville. As they wrap a headline run in the UK and Ireland next month, the long-haired dudes today announce their HILLBILLY HYPNOTIZED TOUR. Dates kick off January 28, 2022, at Joe’s in Rosemont, IL with stops in more than 20 different cities. Tickets go on sale here this Friday (11/19) at 10:00A local time.

“We will be hitting all our favorite cities and clubs, as well as some we’ve never played before, and can’t wait to see y’all there! It’s exciting to be on the road in 2022 with the Hillbilly Hypnotized Tour!” shared TC3 frontman Jaren Johnston.

Diving back into late nights and intense miles on the road these last few months for their 10th ANNIVERSARY TOUR, which included a two-night stint at the Ryman Auditorium, TC3 officially marks a decade as a band. They have come a long way since their high school days of playing music in various arrangements, but the passion is only more amplified. Continuing to find different ways to connect with audiences the trio recently chatted with fans as they released their official video for “Devil’s Lettuce” and they also honored their hometown with an electrifying performance at the Tennessee Titans halftime show last month.

For three guys whose unabashed approach to life mimics their freewheeling musical style, TC3 is a welcome release to the stressors of daily life and reminder of community. Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel guitarist Kelby Ray kept their creativity rolling with two versatile albums in 2020 – February’s COUNTRY FUZZand October’s surprise TABASCO & SWEET TEA – while also partnering with NIVA’s #SAVEOURSTAGES to serve independent venues.

Grayscale brings “Umbra” tour to Harrisburg

in Featured Events by

Philadelphia alt-rock band Grayscale has announced its third full-length album, “Umbra,” the follow up to 2019’s “Nella Vita” and 2017’s debut “Adornment.” The album finds the band – Collin Walsh (lead vocals), Andrew Kyne (guitar), Nick Ventimiglia (bass), Dallas Molster (guitar), and Nick Veno (drums) – not reborn, but refined as they truly came into their sound.

Their story: Five best friends got together and started a band. They took intimate urban stories of broken hearts, bad drugs, blissful sex, and busted dreams and turned them into one alternative rock cult favorite after another.

Then, they crossed into the next dimension with a bold depiction of the big sound they’d always hinted at uplifted on a high of gospel harmonies, horn solos, and the kind of lyrics you get tattooed in places you want people to see (and places you don’t want people to see).

“This band is how we express ourselves,” Walsh said. “I come from an old-school Irish family that didn’t talk about feelings. This band means so much to me, because I’ve been best friends with these guys since I was 13 years old. We’ve known each other for 60 percent of our lives at this point. These are real stories. We love what we do. It’s why we’re alive.

“In a celestial sense, ‘Umbra’ is the area of complete darkness in an eclipse. It’s a shadowy interior that would otherwise be surrounded by light. The sound of the record is pop-rock on the outside, but when you listen to what I’m saying, the stories on the inner core are sexual, vindictive, and wicked. That’s the concept. It reflects the authenticity of who we are as an East Coast rock band. We’re not trying to be anything other than exactly what we are.”
