The new Grand Atlantic album ‘How We Survive”is currently being mastered in Nashville TN (USA) by Jim De Main; we expect it to be finished very soon and will be able to provide review copies next month. The fist single off the album (Tripwires) has been receiving widespread airplay on stations around Australia and over the internet. Rave Magazine described it as “urgent, sweaty and bass-heavy rocking”and concluded “judging from Tripwires, this might be the best time yet to catch Grand Atlantic.” You can do that if you’re in Brisbane or Toowoomba over the next few weeks, and the band will be doing a proper national tour next year.

In the meantime, here are some links to European reviews and airplay:

Yes, we know some of these are in not-english. The translations are funny and confusing but the reviewers seem to like tha band, so it’s all good…
