Grass Is Green - Vacation Vinny

Next January, Boston punk outfit Grass Is Green will accompany likeminded rockers Speedy Ortiz on their month-long tour of the US. Along with cuts off last year’s Ronson, Grass Is Green will also be sporting a brand new album titled Vacation Vinny. Due out on January 14th via Exploding In Sound, the 10-track effort was recorded in Brooklyn this past September with Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez of Gravesend Recordings/Ava Luna.

For a taste of the new LP, check out its closing track, “Vacation 2.0”. But don’t be misled by its name — it’s more a jagged and jarring crunch-fest than a calm walk along the beach, four minutes of sheer turbulence and swift kicks to the aural nerves. Listen in below (via Stereogum):
