Another Amazing Summer in the Books!

September 4th, 2016

We’d like to sincerely thank all our friends, family and fans who came out and supported us this Summer on our coast-to-coast adventure.  Our 45-city tour was the most successful to date and we couldn’t have done it without all of you!

The next year will be a very exciting one as we will be recording and releasing a new full-length album.  The recording process will begin within a few months and the album should be available in Fall 2017.  We know that’s a little long to wait but we promise it will be worth it!

Come see us in Austin and keep spreading the word- lots of big things on the horizon!

A Sincere Thank You To Grit Nation…

September 7th, 2015

We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to all our friends, family and fans across the country.  Spending three months on the road playing music is no small feat, and THERE IS NO WAY WE COULD HAVE SURVIVED IT IF NOT FOR ALL OF YOU!

Whether it was a family member, long-time friend or complete stranger- the generosity y’all bestowed upon us filled our adventure with the warmth we needed to keep the Grit train rolling.

We love you all and will keep busting our ass week-in and week-out, always striving to be the best rock n’ roll band in the land.

More great stuff to come- we promise!
