GREY GORDON TO RELEASE DEBUT FULL-LENGTH RECORD, ‘FORGET I BROUGHT IT UP,’ ON SEPT 2ND
July 15, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – The tattoo-clad, indie-folk troubadour Grey Gordon has announced plans to release his debut, full-length album, Forget I Brought It Up, on September 2nd via his label No Sleep Records. In anticipation of the upcoming release, Gordon has partnered with AVClub.com to stream the record’s first new track, “Target,” today! Also, No Sleep has launched a pre-order for the record, which is available on limited edition vinyl here: https://nosleeprecords.com/product/7305.
After years performing shows and releasing a string of EP’s, Still At Home Here (2013), Sleepless (2012) and Outgrowing Hope (2011), Gordon is finally ready to unveil his first album, Forget I Brought It Up. While mostly known for his acoustic performances, the singer-songwriter picked up the electric for his latest effort and drew upon a wealth of talent he’d acquired over the years; ultimately creating a record that transcends genres and time with brilliantly crafted songs and thoughtful lyrics that would fit well alongside his heroes (Superchunk, The Pixies, Dinosaur Jr. and My Bloody Valentine).
“It's the record I've been waiting to make since I was kid,” he says of Forget I Brought It Up. “It's a big departure from mellow acoustic jams, but it's still me through and through, and I think listeners will recognize that. We recorded the whole thing to tape up in Sumner, WA with Benjamin Barnett of Kind of Like Spitting at the helm, which was an actual dream come true. It's not about one thing, but if I had to choose an overarching theme that presents itself throughout the record, I think it would be the indifference of others. This is an album for the person who can't figure out if it's him/herself or the world that's gone completely insane.”
The Fort Wayne, IN native got his start performing solo in 2011 before releasing a few EPs and joining No Sleep Records for 2013’s Still At Home Here EP and the upcoming full-length. Along the way he’s built a groundswell of support from fans across the country with his unique persona and smartly written songs that will undoubtedly put him on the short list of acts to see in 2014.
