tgc

The Grievance Club a four piece rock band out of Kent, Ohio just released a new music video for their song “In Color & Tone.” The band consists of Kevin Cappy (vocals/bass), Harrison Mills (vocals/guitar), Steve Perrino (guitar) and Dan Roberts on drums. The Grievance Club is one of those bands that can easily play a house show and throw down but as well as play a wedding and win you over with their vocals and meaningful lyrics. They’re one of those bands that can play a range of shows whether its rock or metal.

Check out their music video and lyrics below!

Lyrics:
Lost grip of all my vices;
my fingers twisted pinching the thread.
The colors turn and sway inside my eyes,
No balance to be found ahead.

So you can crack the shell
Strip the skin
and waste away…
Way beyond the shoreline, find me at the bottom
grasping tightly for the tide.

Strip away the skin
Shed the rot within
the bones,
Amend and start again.

I’ll draw mountains if you pull the waves.
I’ll find a way to measure life beyond the ways that I sway
through cyclical days.

And in the cold of a winter’s day,
I hear them speak in such clichés.
I see them bury their flasks and put salt in the gash,
and make amends with their enemies.
Because I know what I deserve, but I forgot the golden rule.
Our sights set on the safer things,
it’s a symptom of security, the common fool.

Sleeping in until the winter sun goes down.
Color days in monotone.

Hold me over
Don’t let me under the waves.
Hold me over, so you can settle the sway.

Erase the gray
Color me in tone.
Settle the sway.
Color me in.

Rock on the Range 2017 Line-up Announced

rotr-pic

Its the year of festivals! Ohio’s famous music festival recently announced their 2017 line-up! Rock on the Range is located in Columbus, Ohio at Mapfre Stadium. This killer three day rock music festival began in the summer of 2007. Previous performers included ZZ Top, Evanescence, Slipknot and many more.

Each year dedicated goers of the festival often referred to as “Rangers” anticipate who is performing this year. After celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2016 there was some criticism on who should have performed. One big name that was brought up is Metallica. Why weren’t they there for an epic celebration of the festivals existence? Well, you won’t be disappointed this year as Metallica has officially been announced as one of the headliners!

The headliners this year include The Offspring, Korn, Soundgarden and the ever so exciting, Metallica. Other notable performers are Primus, Seether, Chevelle, Bush, Alterbridge, Motionless in White, Attila, Pierce the Veil, Skillet, Gojira, In Flames, Sum 41 and many more. There have been one notable change to the festival this year which has caused some slight controversy. There are no more paper tickets! The festival has announced that it will be mailing unique wristbands that contain a Radio Frequency Identification Chip that will allow quick and easy access to the festival. This band will give everyone access that is unique to their ticket purchase.

Make sure you get there early as the festival starts at 11am each day (that’s almost 12 hours of headbanging music per day). Food, alcohol and of course band merch will be available each day (you know you want another band shirt for your collection). ATM’s are available throughout the grounds as well as a medical tent. Showers are even available (phew).

Even though this festival is six months away it has already sold out on camping packages and weekend field stadium general admission. Better hurry and plan for the greatest festival of the year.

Rock on the Range takes place on May 19th, 20th and 21st.
