Grass Is Green ready Vacation Vinny, tour (2013, 2014)

Grass Is Green is set to release Vacation Vinny on January 14.  Over the past few years Boston’s underground and experimental rock scene has grown stronger and increasingly strange with every passing season and Grass Is Green have been a fixture of it all since 2010. After spending much of 2012 and 2013 on the road in support of last year’s Ronson, Grass Is Green will release their vibrant new record Vacation Vinny via Exploding In Sound Records (Palehound, Porches, Ovlov). The band recorded their new album at Gravesend Recordings in Brooklyn’s Silent Barn with producers Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez (of Ava Luna). The album was mixed by Fader, Hernandez and Grass Is Green’s Michael Thomas III and mastered by Michael Siegel.
Today, Stereogum premiered the album’s first single, “Vacation 2.0” stating the song, “jerks and jumps its way through three thrashy minutes” and “it’s smart as hell but you can still most to it”.
