Philadelphia pop punk outfit Grayscale will release their second album Nella Vita on September 6 through Fearless Records. Today, the band premiered the video for “Baby Blue,” featuring an epic hospital room dance party, at Rock Sound. Watch it now.
“This is a song about saying goodbye to someone after years of silence,” the band said. “It’s about regret and realizing in the moment that what kept you apart was dumb and wasn’t worth the exile of one another.”
Grayscale recently wrapped a whirlwind week of coast-to-coast pop-up shops in five cities — Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, and Brooklyn. The fan-centric experiences included exclusive merch and quality time with the band.
Grayscale will embark on a proper headline tour in September and October. Belmont, Bearings, and Rich People will also appear. All confirmed dates, including the record release show which wraps the tour in the band’s hometown, are below.
Under a heavy influence of everything from ’90s rock to funk, as well as a rotation of modern hip-hop and R&B, Grayscale dove headfirst into writing Nella Vita. At the top of 2019, the band traded its hometown of Philadelphia for Austin, Texas, holing up in the Machine Shop alongside producer MACHINE [Lamb of God, As It Is, Armor For Sleep, Four Year Strong]. The resulting collection of tracks is one that sees the band chronicling life, its many facets, and its many complications, as they themselves have experienced.
