The Grogans are gearing up to celebrate their third studio album WHICH WAY IS OUT in full swing, with a tour kicking off across Australia and New Zealand in February 2023 including some festival appearances at Ninch Fest and Temple Sessions Festival, with all tickets on sale now!

After a busy year with their first run of international shows in New Zealand, supporting Hockey Dad on their Australian Tour,  plus festival appearances at Wanderer Music FestivalBest Night Ever NYE on the HillThe Great Escape and Drift Festival, and a sold out international support with US band WAVES, WHICH WAY IS OUT was launched with sold out release day shows at HABA in Rye and an exhibition at Melbourne’s Record Paradise presented by Cousin Will Records commemorating all things Grogans. Alongside the tour announcement the trio are releasing a colourful claymation visual for feature track ‘LE FANGZ’, an exuberant and playful expression of the energy more familiar at The Grogans live shows.

Have you ever imagined a daisy inspired vampire creature? Meet the protagonist of feature track ‘LE FANGZ’ and the visual claymation component created by Willem Kingma. “Le Fangz tries to mellow you out and tell a story of an imaginary creature ‘le fang’ through a more lo/fi gritty ballad. This song actually accrued from this awful painting Quin did of these daisy looking vampire critters during lockdown. We were having a few beers on the grass just painting on big bits of plywood. After Quin had finished he wrote ‘le fangs’ on it as the title which ended up in our studio until it one day became the main character in a song.” The Grogans

The band approached me with the concept of creating a stop-motion music video that involved a daisy with fangs, as the song itself was based off a painting Quin had done of a flower with sharp teeth. I started making the models using plasticine and polymer clay. I opted to shoot everything as a flat lay, animating the models on top of green or blue paper which I later keyed out in the edit and replaced with my own backgrounds. After everything was edited together, I put the digital footage to a VHS tape which to me made it look like some freaky lost children’s program! – Willem Kingma

Tracks from WHICH WAY IS OUT have seen The Grogans collectively added to Spotify’s New Music Friday AU & NZ, Fresh Finds AU & NZLocal Noise, and Indie Arrivals and music video adds Rage and MTV. Whether it’s Quin’s rhyming lyrics and captivating vocals, Angus’ irresistible guitar riffs, or Jordan’s punctuated and propelling percussion, “We’re not exactly sure Which Way Is Out but, when it comes to The Grogans, we’re definitely all in.” – Bryget Chrisfield.

Get ready to scream the lyrics at the top of your lungs of some old favourites and these new gems, as the trio transcend the borderlines between heavy, cruisy, and acoustic tracks with their fresh twist on the classic Grogans sound.
