Biography

Originating from Wisconsin, now in Colorado, Gription offers up their latest CD. Last in Line is proudly produced and mastered by Blasting Room Studios. Headed by Bill Stevenson - the same musical master who’s enticing, rhythmic beats are the backbone of big bands such as Black Flag, Descendents, Lemonheads, and Only Crime, and Jason Livermore – ‘the man’ credited for his recent work with NOFX and Rise Against. It’s a unique house-blend of artist and production that’s spiced with new rock elements, notes of free thought and mind, featuring a twist of fist-raising tunes. Enjoyed by many and pairs well with several types of food.

Gription’s mission is to ignite a new music nation. To introduce new rock sounds - stemmed from legendary roots. Music that’s been professionally tailored for the currently anticipating and awaiting public ear; because, today’s pop music scene has become mediocre, boring – and dangerously all-encompassing. No more should music fans be coerced into one direction, one wave of thought. Gription proposes: Think outside of the box, search around the box… take the box home with you – fill it with questions and feed it the truth. America’s generalized press, policy, and plastic pop media attempts to label, restrain, and assimilate you. They answer back: with requests for open-thought formation and auditory stimulation.

Since their inception, Gription has performed at many established venues, played for national music acts, and earned local support and recognition. As a band they are reliably consistent, genuinely passionate, comically energetic, and wildly imaginative. They have gained the skill, and confidence, to rock any, and all, audiences. Gription gives every show nothing less than their all, bringing rock excitement wherever they go.

The musical movement began in June 2003. Gription kicked-off in a Wisconsin riverfront community bursting with local attraction. Their music instantly captured the spirits of many die-hard rock music fans. The lyrics are thought-provoking, invigorating, and fun. The harmonies and beats are stimulating, resonating, and toe-tapping. The performances? Captivating. Gription’s fan base developed naturally and swiftly, and is now commonly referred to as the “Gription Army”. They were highlighted on 93X (93.7 FM) in Minnesota and recently on 95 GMO (95.9 FM) in Wisconsin. Gription was also publicized by local press in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008.

Gription arrived in Colorado in 2006 to bring you original music with a welcoming intensity. They have rocked at many established venues along the Front Range including, but not limited to, The Fox Theater in Boulder and the Soiled Dove in Denver. “Music is more than just a part of our lives. It has become engrained into our soul as the only true form of expression we can find.” (Vince)

Driven by their vision, Old Habits Die Hard was shortly released in 2007 – a record production created entirely by Gription. It caught the local ear and their original tune “Draft Dodger” was featured on Colorado’s 99.9 The Point FM during the “Locals Only” show. 94X (104.3 FM) named them Artist of the Week. Gription’s songs have also been played on 93.3 KTCL Modern Rock in Denver and 99.5 The Mountain FM.

2007 also marked the partnership of Gription and Syntropic Music, LLC. – an indie record label based in Boulder, Colorado. Thanks to the dedicated work from Blasting Room Studios and Gription, in conjunction with Syntropic Music, LLC., we are proudly releasing this year’s musical sensation for the listening nation – Six Cylinder Crush. Six Cylinder Crush is Gription’s hottest single off their newest cd Last in Line.

Lyrics

Six Cylinder Crush

Written By: Gription

Loose cannon lovin’
You know this ain’t nothin’
but a quick fix
for everlasting longing
I got this deepened desire
I gotta find a gun for hire
But I'm lost once again
without a good lie or a master plan

But I got a
six cylinder crush
How come one touch just wasn’t enough?
And she held her gaze on me for far too long
for far too long

It was great to know you
but I got to get going
from my stalled life
and all this wasted time
It was great to feel her
Oh so close
but never near enough
for me to jump
before the shots rang out

But I got a
six cylinder crush
How come one touch just wasn’t enough?
And she held her gaze on me for far too long
Her hands rest on her thighs
Another shot from those hell bent eyes
And I just let this go for far too long
for far too long

Last in Line

Written By: Gription

Got a freeway
Get a bypass
Twenty-one guns ‘till the danger’s past
Got a modern
Million dollars
Still you’re feeding from the bottom
Under belly
Starts to redden
Bringing the noise
right to your door step
We’re bringing the noise
right to your doorstep

You’re last in line
to seal the deal
A clever backhand
that no one feels
You’re last in line
You’re last in line

Got a freeway
Get a bypass
Never lose sight
Of the golden calf
Generation lost a nation
Now I think it’s time
That we take it back
Under belly
Starts to redden
Bringing the noise
right to you door step
We’re bringing the noise
right to your doorstep

(Chorus)

We’re bringing the noise
right to your door step

(Chorus)

You’re last in line
It’s a clever backhand
that no one feels
You’re last in line
You’re last in line

Broadcast Battleground

Written By: Gription

Tune in and set it off
start a revolution but don’t break the law
And I say it’s time that we make them all believe
No weakness will be allowed
Jump in head first come and join the crowd
we got ourselves a new list of…
A new list of demands

Through a visual explosion
let's set the wheels in motion
Cause a panic
make an outrage seem benign
Through a little broadcast power
we'll control the hours
But soon we'll set
the whole damn world on fire

(Chorus)

There’s diamonds out in the ruff
breaking chains just wasn't enough
Cause a panic
make a disaster disappear
Now that the genocide is hidden
let's see who lives we're living
Gather round we'll trade your white lies for denial

(Chorus)

And we got'em right here
In the palm of our hands
