Listenable Records is proud to release the stunning new sophomore full-length, Coming Back Again, from Brooklyn, New York-based psychedelic rock trio THE GOLDEN GRASS this April. A truly serpentine journey where the epic glory and might of ’70s psychedelia, the sun-drenched warmth of Laurel Canyon’s golden country/folk era and sheer blues-based Southern rock boogie give way to exploratory landscapes, lysergic prog arrangements and a swinging jazz touch, the six-track follow-up to the band’s 2014 self-titled Svart Records debut, was tracked by Jeff Berner at Galuminum Foil Productions.
“Our new album is definitely the most adventurous and sonically exploratory music we’ve ever made,” comments the band of Coming Back Again. “At the same time, it is our most melodic and vocally/lyrically focused as well. The overall feel is like an upbeat psychedelic heavy rock ‘n’ roll journey, with dense progressive arrangements that really transport the listener through all of the sonic dimensions of THE GOLDEN GRASS universe. It’s quite a fun record; it really swings. We’re super proud of how it was produced and the flow of the album is a real trip. Most importantly, the energy within the group really explodes from the speakers. As far as the progression of the group since we formed, this record is the perfect statement of where we are right now, and we couldn’t be happier to share that joy with our listeners! Keep on grassin’…”

Influenced by the likes of such American rock legends as The James Gang, The Allman Brothers and Grand Funk Rainroad, the soulful British psych/mod of The Move, The Pretty Things and The Action, and the heavy umph of Budgie, Blue Cheer and Blackfoot, THE GOLDEN GRASS synthesizes their influences into a seamless, memorable, and high-energy performance that screams from the past but is a welcome and much needed presence in the now.
The UK’s Classic Rock Magazine gave their debut an 8/10 score crowning it, “a boogie-heavy anthem…this is rock at its most classic,” Shindig’s 4/5 review lauded the band’s, “rootsy psychedelia infused Southern country-rock that actually leaves you smiling,” while Kerrang’s 4/5 rating hailed their, “sunburst anthems, rainbow brightness and heat-haze psychedelia.” Iron Fist gushed, “THE GOLDEN GRASS stand tall and proud for one damn reason; sincerity.” Added The Obelisk, “There have been comparisons to classic rock acts from Hendrix to Creedence Clearwater Revival to Blue Cheer to Led Zeppelin to Blue Öyster Cult, but none of them quite captures the entirety of what THE GOLDEN GRASS are doing…because, as in the best of cases, they’re taking the influence of these landmark acts and creating something of their own from them. And the result is a sound that bridges a gap few these days even dare approach. Get heavy, get happy.”
In support of their forthcoming new album, THE GOLDEN GRASS will embark on their third European tour this coming May which already includes an appearance at the legendary Freak Valley Festival
Coming Back Again will be available on CD, limited edition colored vinyl and digitally on April 15th in North America and April 22nd in Europe with preorders, track teasers and tour dates to be unveiled in the weeks to come.
