"Under promise and over deliver.. "
OK, I as Matt from Electric Voice pointed out via a txt message this morning.. I lied. Grand Trine’s last official release is an original song “NEANDERTHAL MAN” which is being release on the very cool Electric Voice DOUBLE LP Compilation featuring us and Ariel Pink, R. Stevie Moore, Roland S. Howard (R.I.P), Jeff & Jane Hudson, d’Eon, Automelodi, Femmineli & many others. How cool is it to share a release with Jeff & Jane + Roland S. Howard??? I don’t know. That’s bananas to me.
It started shipping today. Limited to 500. Someday it’s definitely gonna end up in the strange rare record Hall of Fame aka Ebay. It’s quite the ambitious art project for young Mr. Samways. Congrats to him for making it real.
So there’s two new GT records out within a month now that we’re dead after years of spinning our tires and releasing very little. I don’t claim to understand how the world works.
Happy New Year! (2 weeks too late)
I guess we forgot to mention that Bathetic Records+ William Cody Watson + Alex Zhang Hungtai have put together a concept compilation featuring the crew (our underground friends/family/extended family).
Interesting factoid: The cover art was shot by Alex on Mulholand Drive in California.

We are pleased to announce our next release is a 45” dedicated to the music of my estranged father. It will be out soon thanks to ALMOST READY RECORDS in Brooklyn, NYC. The Bohemians were a band who would later turn into the much more known & loved Montreal group The Haunted. They were apparently the first group in Montreal to grow their hair long. Our cover of the B-side "Say It" has been floating around the internet for about a year but this release will also feature Shub & I doing our interpretation of “I Need You Baby” on the A-side. We took a few more liberties with this new cover and it sounds pretty messed up and crazy. I have been listening to the original single since I was a kid and it means a lot to me have an opportunity to pay homage to it. Pre-order info soon!
