Grayscale play Slam Dunk Festival this year

Grayscale have announced that they’ll be playing their first headline shows on UK shores this May in Birmingham (21) and London (22). Tickets go on sale this Friday. The band are also slated to play Slam Dunk Festivals and they’ve been announced as support to Four Year Strong in Germany and the Netherlands. Their forthcoming stint in Europe will follow a current North American headline tour.

Grayscale recently premiered a video for the live version of deeply personal track Tommy’s Song, filmed at the TLA in their native Philadelphia. Tommy’s Song was written for singer Collin Walsh’s cousin, Thomas Patrick Walsh, who took his own life last April. Tommy was just 20 years old.

“It was challenging for us to write a song in a way that we felt captured the impact of the situation appropriately,” the band says. “‘Tommy’s Song’ was written with the help of our friend, Skylar Patzer, who beautifully performed the piano track on this song, and also featured a choir singing the reprise and carrying the song through its grandiose ending.”

Catch the band at Slam Dunk Festival in Leeds in May!
