Five best friends from a blue-collar Americancitygot together and started a band. They took intimate-urban stories of broken hearts, bad drugs, blissful sex, and busted dreams and turned them into one alternative rock cult favorite after another. Then, they crossed into the next dimension with a bold depiction of the big sound they’d always hinted at uplifted on a high of gospel harmonies, horn solos, and the kind of lyrics you get tattooed in places you want people to see(and places you don’t want people to see). This is the story of Grayscale so far and how they got to their third full-length album, Umbra[Fearless Records]. After racking up 50 million streams and receiving praise from Forbes, Billboard, and more, the proud Philadelphiaquintet—Collin Walsh [lead vocals], Andrew Kyne [guitar], Nick Ventimiglia [bass], Dallas Molster [guitar], and Nick Veno [drums]—open up themselves and their sound throughout these eleven tracks.
