Giant Brain, the experimental electro-prog project are to bring a new album titled Grade A Gray Day on March 10th. The album will be out through Small Stone Recordings and Kozmik Artifactz. The album is their final studio tribute to the late band mate Phil Dürr.
Listen to the album here:
According to the presss:
“On January 11th, 2019, Dürr returned to the great mothership in the sky, days after suffering a cardiac arrest while in Germany visiting relatives. Between his international familial bonds and his membership in such hard-touring bands as Big Chief and Five Horse Johnson, he was mourned by friends, fans, and family globally. His loss was most keenly felt in Detroit, Michigan, his hometown since moving to the area from Mexico as a child, and where he was amid recording the latest Giant Brain album.”
The band share their thoughts:
“For all of us this was a tough record to work on after Phil passed away but it was beautiful at the same time. It was a way we could connect with each other and really internalize how this amazing human connected us with his soulfulness. Every step of the way it was like ‘yeah Phil is digging this.'”
