2013 has an even better projection for the band, kicking off with the news that they will join Tame Impala on their USA tour through February and March, returning home in April just in time to release their debut LP, What Would Christ Do??
What started out as a bedroom based recording project for founding members front-man Cameron Avery and guitarist Clinton Oliver, is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with on the local and international stage thanks to their passionate and ever growing fan base, intense live show and solid Triple J (winning the Unearthed performance slot for Big Day Out Perth 2012) and community radio support.
The Grow will headline their own national album launch shows mid 2013, stay tuned for details.
“Avery was like an evangelical preacher trembling under the weight of God as he was shaking, thrashing, and staggering around the stage, “growling” (there it is) like a man possessed.” – Drum Media
“Combining stripped-down rock’n’roll and primal blues-based riffs with dashes of thrash, chaotic rockabilly and psychedelic rock, suitably played with psychotic menace, the quixotic sextet pulsated through their 40 minute set, every note a perfect thrill, each shriek depraved.” – Xpress Magazine
“Grimy, sexy, confident blues rock that will leave the taste of iron on your tongue.” – Beat Magazine
“The double-team drummers made as much racket as humanly possible up the back, their vocalist/guitarist was howling like a double shot of a nail through the foot and a woman who done did him wrong. It was mesmerizing, not to mention downright exciting… Absolutely fantastic” – Fasterlouder.com.au
