First New Grandaddy Music in 10 Years / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

In March 2017, Modesto, CA's Grandaddy will release Last Place (on Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton's 30th Century Records), the group's long awaited first studio album since 2006's Just Like the Fambly Cat. Produced by the band's Jason Lytle, Last Place is wry, humane, poignant, fantastical, and very beautiful; a panoramic representation of everything that has always made Grandaddy so well-loved.

After Grandaddy broke up in 2006, Lytle relocated to Montana, where he happily made two solo albums, and reconnected with the natural world around him. Eventually, though, life uprooted him again, taking him to Portland, OR until he eventually returned to his former home of Modesto. The return to California was practical (he needed to be near his bandmates) but also appropriate: he had started writing songs that he felt would be fitting for another Grandaddy album. He needed to let the ideas flow until he found the perfect chemistry for what is now Last Place, which he describes as: "just enough personal stuff and just enough escapism, just enough electronics and just enough acoustic elements. The full spectrum."

The result is a perfect addition to the band's celebrated, critically-acclaimed catalogue, that includes their breakthrough sophomore album, Sophtware Slump, and their debut, Under the Western Freeway. It's a symphonic swirl of lo-fi sonics and mile-high harmonies, found sounds and electronics-gone-awry mingling with perfect, power pop guitar tones. Lytle‘s voice sounds as warm and intimate as ever, giving graceful levity to the doomsday narratives that have dominated the Grandaddy output.

When it came time to release the record, Grandaddy found an ally in artist, producer, and label owned Danger Mouse who notes, "Grandaddy's music has had a big influence on me and the new album almost sounds like it could fit between Sophtware Slump and Sumday."
