Grandaddy formed in Modesto, CA in 1992 and consists of Jason Lytle, Aaron Burtch, Tim Dryden, Jim Fairchild and Kevin Garcia. The band initially broke through with 1997’s Under the Western Freeway and the NME-praised single “Summer Here Kids.”
The band’s sound,” atmospheric electronics meet warped Americana”, crystallised on 2000’s Sophtware Slump, which was met with breathless hype and earned the band “Next Big Thing” status. Tireless rounds of international touring and mountains of fawning press led to 2003’s Sumday, increasing album sales, more touring, more press, T.V.show appearances and a slot on the main stage at the Glastonbury festival. The band produced another EP and an album entitled Just Like the Fambly Cat, before disbanding in 2006.
Following a brief live reunion in 2012, Grandaddy is set for a full return this year, including the first new music in ten years and a new album via 30th Century Records / Columbia Records.
