ALBUM RELEASE // Greylag Self-Titled Debut Album Out Now Worldwide, EU Tour Starts Nov. 11th




“They seem like an antidote handed down from God to shut up certain people who like to complain that they just don’t make rock bands like they used to”

Stereogum [“Band To Watch”]

Portland-based trio Greylag joined the Dead Oceans family back in July. We first got a glimpse of the band at this year’s SXSW and today their self-titled debut full-length LP, Greylag, is out now worldwide on Dead Oceans (UK release Nov. 3rd). 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).

Greylag is out now via SC Distribution (deluxe bundle) iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.

Critics agree:

“Another’ is the first track on Greylag’s tremendously appealing self-titled debut (due out October 14), and it sets the tone for the record’s catchy and briskly strummed mini epics… the widescreen majesty of this music is decidedly rock”

Grantland

“the trio string together various bits of ’60s rock influences: mountain-man harmonies that echo Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, gentle acoustic guitars ala John Fahey and early-day Lindsey Buckingham, and even a tinge of Led Zeppelin swagger. The result is a resoundingly confident preview that is both earnest and sweeping.”

Consequence of Sound

“From its opening chords, the album…conjures up potent sounds of Led Zeppelin’s acoustic side”

The Oregonian

“Greylag’s wanderlusting, exploratory sound is a perfect fit for Dead Oceans”

Portland Mercury

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.”
