ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Portland Based Greylag Joins Dead Oceans, Shares Single “Another”, Self-Titled Album Out October 13th




“Greylag have that special something. The Portland trio plays a virtuosic Led Zeppelin III strain of folk-rock that could easily… win them fans across many musical subcultures.”

- Stereogum

Today we are extremely proud to announce Portland-based trio Greylag has joined the Dead Oceans family. We first got a glimpse of the band at this year’s SXSW and have been jamming to their tunes on full blast here at Dead Oceans HQ ever since. Today, we we are excited to announce Greylag‘s self-titled debut full-length LP, Greylag, out October 14th, 2014 on Dead Oceans. Recorded with Phil Ek (Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, The Shins) at Seattle’s Avast Studio, Greylag is a followup to the band’s 2012 seven-track EP The Only Way To Kill (Ninth Street Opus).

Premiering this morning via Stereogum, preview the new album with track “Another” above or here on Youtube / Soundcloud.

Greylag is composed of Andrew Stonestreet, Daniel Dixon, and Brady Swan, three vastly talented musicians with incredibly different yet cohesive musical backgrounds. As for their name, the band explains “It’s a wild goose, from which all domestic geese originate, so it’s the first survivor, and it’s still wild, and doing things its own way – the ‘lag’ part refers to it being the last bird to migrate. It sits back and watches. We love the connotation.”

Stay tuned for more details and tour dates to be announced. Click read more for artwork and tracklisting.
