Your Grandad Is Here To Slay!
Today is the momentous day that local heroes Your Grandad celebrate their debut Safe Sounds release.
The Double-A single 'Juice Opinion / Fake News' (SS113) is a hard-hitting two track wonder featuring the angular guitars of William O'Neill, the unfathomable drumming of Max Scheffel and the funky bass of Cameron Kirk. On top of that, there's some good old fashioned singing to top it all off.
We're sure you'll agree that the sound of this Toronto post-punk trio just gets more refined as time passes. These two tracks were recorded by Stephen Pitman and mastered by Brent O'Toole, with album art by Jaymie Flis.
Go throw em a bone by downloading the tracks via their Bandcamp. You can also pre-order a limited edition cassette of this release too... it's an investment sure to double, triple or quadruple in value as the band shoot to international stardom... not that you'll ever consider selling it... some things are priceless; drowning in memories and wrapped up with tangible feelings of a bygone age. Yes, even as a grandad yourself, we guarantee you'll be sitting in a chair clutching that cassette, tears dripping down your chit onto your walking stick.
Speaking of old times, have you seen Your Grandad's epic bank vault sessions from back in 2020? If not you should go and check those out after listening to the new stuff, because you get to see them in all of their black-and-white glory!

Your Grandad Joins the Safe Sounds Family
Okay, the rumours are true! We're so excited to announce that your grandad has joined Safe Sounds collective... well... "Your Grandad" the band that is!
Yes, we've been concealing the excitement in our bellies ever since their show at Houndstooth kick started live music in Toronto, just a few days after the Bill Cutbill / Ultra pop-up at the same venue.
So what exactly is in the works I hear you ask?! Well at the end of August, Your Grandad will be releasing a Double A single — Juice Opinion & Fake News — on limited edition cassette.
Details about the release are currently scant, but we caught up with Your Grandad recently to talk about juice, and you hear their thoughts it the latest issue of Ultra Mag which is available today!

Improv Jam on Fire - Your Grandad
Wil: "Yo, Max?"
Wil: "You ever improv jammed until you fell a level deeper?"
Max: "Please, tell me more."
Cam: "There is no time... and yet we have all the time in the world."
On the Twelfth of February, 2020, Your Grandad visited the Safe Sounds bank vault. On that day, the boys did some improvised jamming. That is what happened here. They were on fire.

Special thanks to Bob Kirk for owning a very lovely minivan.
