Atlanta garage rockers Gringo Star announce UK & EU Headline Tour

Having shared stages with the likes of Feist, Weezer, Cat Power, Best Coast, Wavves, Black Lips, The Toadies, and more, Atlanta quartet Gringo Star are heading out on a UK & EU tour in 2019.

Combining a love for the pioneers of the past with a sense of vital originality, the band seamlessly fuse garage rock, doo-wop harmonies straight from a fifties jukebox, and surfed-up alternative guitar riffs. There’s no premeditation, posturing, or overthinking required in the song writing process.

“There’s never much premeditation,” says vocalist Nick. “We don’t overthink it. The music comes together the way it’s meant to. We simply make what we want to hear.”

“We tried hard to make an album we liked ourselves without considering what’s popular,” agrees Peter. “At the same time, we refined the process and came up with some new ideas.”

This sense of spontaneity can be heard on 2018 record Back To The City which the band recorded and self-produced in Peter Furgiuele’s Studio 234. Pop Matters said that the record “captures that effortless zeal in its element.”

Catch the band in their natural habitat at a UK show in February 2019.
