Toothgrinder – Talking
About 'Phantom Amour'
Toothgrinder has a new record due out
November 10th-- “Phantom Amour” and the band has taken the
somewhat unusual step of heading out on tour well in advance
of its release. When I say somewhat unusual, I
mean that in the context of most bands. Most will not
hit the road nearly two months in advance of their next
release, but Toothgrinder isn’t like most bands as these road
dogs have established well-worn trails crisscrossing America
one tour after the next.
Toothgrinder has released several
videos to tease “Phantom Amour.” “The Shadow” dropped
September 8th, “Phantom Amour” on October 3rd and “Let It
Ride” on October 27th. Fans will notice that the new
record evolves slightly from past efforts in that it has more
of a groove. While the subtle change is noted, the band
hasn’t departed from their signature sound.
