GRINGO STAR: TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

By condensing a palate of swirling and innovative guitar voyages and a sweat-soaked baroque punk ethos that loses itself in carpet-crawling majesty, Gringo Star has emerged as Atlanta’s favorite rock and roll sons. Brothers Nick and Pete Furgiuele, along with Pete DeLorenzo and Matt McCalvin have continually built momentum, crisscrossing the country and honing their chops on rock and roll’s frontline. Crafting an art-damaged and intense presence, the group’s sound falls somewhere between The Animals, Motown and The Kinks. On stage, Gringo Star explode – never ones to hang on to the same instruments for too long, each member of the group sprints and hurdles from station to station, swapping out guitar for bass for drums for voice, keyboard for accordion, kazoo for tambourine. As a result, the band’s multifaceted musicianship culminates in dense and cerebral rock mantras that are hard-wired to the head and heart. 
Catch them on tour in the next few weeks!

“With their excellent debut album, All Y’all, this Atlanta garage-rock band validate the CMJ buzz.” Spin.com

“This Atlanta, Georgia foursome add layers of rural lilt to their Brit-ish pop, garagey grit to others, while sneaking out slight-psych guitar blasts and gang yalps when least expected. If not the wheel rebooted, their self-titled full-length on My Anxious Mouth is stunningly seasoned for a debut.” CMJ.com

“A little scuzzy, a little jangly and a lot awesome” Blender

“A tapestry of jangly guitar and multi-part vocal harmonies, and ranges from psychedelia to garage rock to surf pop. A bit off-kilter and more than a little charming, it’s Atlanta pop at its best and communicates as well as any recording could what it’s like to see the band live. No song better represents the band than the title track (and first single), ‘All Y’all’: It’s anthemic, hook-filled and catchy as hell” Paste

“All Y’all” is an exuberant rush of early Kinks guitars, tambourines, handclaps, multi-part harmonies, and bits of tinkly piano, all catchy.” Pitchfork

” I would mark All Y’all as one of the most exciting albums of the year, and, probably the best debut release.” Blurt

“They’ve got a killer name and killer tunes. Gringo Star are definitely a band on the rise.”
