"Griffon Debut EP"

In almost every meaningful sense, Griffon are a throwback to a time where deeply lyrical songs were well written... This...is a record cut free from commerciality's constraints, drifting along pop's converging currents filled with pop vocals and heavy melodic chords.

"I'm an old, cantankerous, jaded, and easily-bored music addict, and MA's Griffon… have yet to inspire a single yawn. Great energy, solid songwriting, and one of the easier to deal/ work with bands I've yet to encounter. Aside from an intelligent incorporation of melody, they've also got an aggressive edge - but without the repetitive, drop-tuned, single note chuggin' that everyone and their grandmother's aggro-rock/metal/alt band now employs to death."

Bio


Releasing their third EP, Sirius B, in April of 2012, Boston, MA’s Griffon is proud to be more than just a rock band. Launching their Griffon Lives Life charity in late 2008, the group has helped raise $400 for the Massachusetts Advocates for Children. Currently, they have collected more than 15 bags of clothing and goods for Youth On Fire, a daytime youth shelter.

Encompassing more than the "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" cliché, Griffon elects to use their music as a vessel for empowerment. The Weight of Water propels forward with powerful rhythms and varied song structures, which accompany their unique lyrics. From the seeking declaration of “Hey! What is my name?” from album-opener “Awakened” to tales of personal discovery in “Bury Me” and “The Revenant,” the band’s positive message is clearly identifiable.

Griffon takes the moment to include a revitalized and hard-rock take on Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses at Night” in the midst of their latest album. The fist-pumping swagger of “Freedom” brings the disc to a close, embodying Griffon’s message: “freedom is a hand, and it’s reaching out to me.”

Always building momentum and growing their dedicated and passionate fan base, Griffon takes each chance as a unique opportunity. Just like the lyrics in “Bury Me,” Griffon asks of their listeners what they ask of themselves: “When the moment calls my name, will I take it?”
