The Grogans at Settlers Tavern
Following a huge year of touring through 2022, The Grogans are jumping straight back into another packed year!
The Grogans have just announced their 27-date AUS/NZ tour in support of their latest album ‘Which Way Is Out’, which was released in October 2022.
Genre-expanding outfit The Grogans are a trio of best mates from Melbourne who explore nuanced manoeuvres in surf, punk, blues, garage, psych and rockabilly. The band’s latest album ‘Which Way Is Out’ is their 3rd album (6th release since 2017) and digs deeper into the band’s genre fluidity.
“WHICH WAY IS OUT was based around a similar work flow we have taken on previous releases. The idea of going away to write/record has been the best way for us to completely be involved in the project. I think it allows us to step back from the other responsibilities in our life for just a minute and set our minds on one thing at a time. We have said it before, but I think it’s something we will have to say as long as we are putting out records, that being our desire to keep trying to force ourselves out of a specific ‘one genre band’ and explore new ideas within the sound that we have developed so far. The new album contains the classic Grogans formula of heavier songs, cruisier songs and acoustic tracks. This helps us make our records have a sense of movement but also continuity between LPs. “Which Way Is Out is a collection of tracks we think fit on a record together, some Tracks are old and some far more recent, but we managed to pull together a body of work which I think is somewhat nostalgic but also forward looking. This is based around our love for the past, cars, music and certain aesthetics but mixed with a modern-day twist.“
The Grogans have supported the likes of Ocean Alley, Maddy Jane, Northeast Party House, Drunk Mums and The Chats and Hockey Dad across 18 dates on their 2022 Regional Tour.
