Grandaddy just announced a tour, they're going out together with Pete Yorn for some reason. Those 2 dont exactly "fit" together, but it's all cool I guess. I want to go see it, hopefully it's cheap.

Good to see you back here "so-called" homie EP. Software Slump is fantastic.

They also have a new one coming out on the same day as Hail to the Thief.

some Grandaddy news from the ever resourceful Pitchfork.....



Grandaddy Complete New Album, Tour the World
And ELO wonders where their fanbase went
Rod Waterman reports:
As previously reported, arch-conceptualists Grandaddy are getting ready to lay a grand and heavy dose of Sumdayon us in the very near future. Although last time we checked in with the band, they were hyping it to V2 as a two-disc set, it appears that the ever-economical label has since won out: Sumdaywill be a single-disc release after all. Oh, how nouveau. Sumdayis now slated to hit stores on June 10th, right smack in the middle of a touring marathon not seen since the giant inflatable pig was a runty twinkle way far off in the cosmic distance.
Grandaddy will be embarking on their 27-date North American tour with, perhaps questionably, Pete Yorn (whaaaaaa?????), before heading off alone for 16 dates in Europe in June, where they'll eventually hit the festival circuit, possibly for a culminative weird-off with the Flaming Lips in an obscure field somewhere in the south central Lowlands. I tell you what, people, the stuffed animals of the world are just not safe with these two outfits pairing up. And if Beck ever finds them, look out-- the collective irony-level is sure to go right into the damn stratosphere. I'm not sure my eyebrows can go that high.
Meanwhile, the 'Daddy's fledgling Sweat of the Alps label now has two stablemates, Built Like Alaska and Arm of Roger. Check 'em out. Tourdates (Pete Yorn shows conveniently asterisked for your early-arrival attention

grandaddy's cool. i saw them open up for coldplay in detroit in 2000. they use a lot of video, with a big projector screen in back. crazy footage of, like, ten minutes of wind turbines. eerie yet great.

crystal lake is an excellent song, imho.

Grandaddy are brilliant!!! They write songs that will make you laugh and cry simultaniously. They sing about the funniest things, but so seriously that it breaks your heart. "The Sophtware Slump" is a masterpeice. Also they have a lot of great b-sides and rare tracks. Even the ones that aren't great are always very interesting. They just have a vibe and attitude that is unlike any band I have ever heard.

Songs I recommend:
The Crystal Lake
Hewlett's Daughter
He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot (blew me away on first listen)
Mine at the Dial-A-View
Chartsengrafs
So You'll Aim toward the Sky
A.M. 180
Collective Dreamwish of Upperclass Elegance
Now It's On
I'm On Standby
The Warming Sun
Wives Of Farmers
What Can't Be Erased

So Anyway, If you don't know these guys, do yourself a favor and check them out.

hey...i saw them at the pete yorn show. i liked them but don't even know where to start getting into them. they were very creative and it was a great opening band!

question for those who have seen them live: i really liked one song they sang but have NO CLUE which it is. all i know is during it they were playing a video of a little love story backwards on the screen behind them. anybody know what that song is?

I cant figure out if this album is coming out next week or on June 10.

Different sites say different things.

I'm guessing June 10 is still the real release date.
