Griswolds 2

Who are you and what are you doing here? (what is your name, what is the band and what is your role in the band?)


Hi My name is Whitehall and i have an alcohol addiction


How did the band start?


Dan said “hey bro, the bands we play in are shit, wanna start a good one?”


How would you describe your band?


medievil, tranquil, Jazzercise with a hint of sarcasm


If you had to choose one song you’ve written that best defines your band which one would it be?


probs ‘Heart of a Lion’ at this point, this song put us on the map, but sound wise, we’d like to think that ‘Mississippi’ better defines our sound, it’s more of a direction we’d like to explore in future


In this day and age where anyone is pretty much able to pick up an instrument, what would you say sets your band apart from the rest?


in any industry, creative or otherwise, to stand out you have be undisputably, the hardest working person in the pack, once you’ve got the attention you’re after, you gotta hope you got the goods


Where are people able to hear your songs?


iTunes, facebook, Youtube


Tell us about the shows you have coming up? 


we currently have a 2 month tour coming up, we go all around Australia in April before jetting over to the U.S, U.K and Europe in May. This all for our current single, ‘The Courtship Of Summer Preasley’. We can’t wait to get on the road again!


What is your proudest moment/greatest achievement as a band? 


being voted in at 141 in TripleJ’s Hottest 100 was pretty spesh, we never dreamed we’d get voted in so high since we’re not even a year old yet. We’ve listened to the hottest 100 since back when we were kids, we still can’t believe that we made it to #141 with over 1.5million votes counted!


Tell us 3 bands that we should be listening to/be keeping an eye out for?


The Belligrents, Oceanics, PANAMA


Anything Else you’d like to add?
