The Grey, Kill Chicago’s first full length album is the culmination of ten years of performing, and a life’s worth of experiencing the mixed blessings of the Maritimes. Songwriter Greg Webber (vocals/guitar) grew up in Fredericton, New Brunswick. He’s seen friends and family make that tough decision, familiar to all Maritimers, to look for work out West. The Grey embodies those experiences: the heartache that comes with leaving, the hardship it brings to relationships, and the compromises that are endured. This is no coal miner’s ballad though; The Grey takes that message and lashes it to some full-blooded, punk inspired, electrified blues-rock.
Greg has seen his share of the country, and then some. But true to his ideals and his Maritime roots, Webber returned to his native Fredericton, and a successful collaboration with friends, and fellow Frederictonians Matt Bowie (bass), Zach Atkinson (drums), and Dillon Anthony (organ, pedal steel). In their year performing as a full band they’ve seen praise, and standing room only shows, their showmanship and skill for high-energy rock and roll garnering them instant acclaim.
In September the band will be featured on US-based Relix Magazine’s compilation CD along with Gary Clark Jr. They’ll also be hitting the stage at Fredericton’s Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival, opening for East Coast rocker Matt Mays on September 17th.
The Grey will be released September 7th, 2015 as 150 gram vinyl/digital download. It will be available for purchase from Backstreet Records (Fredericton/Saint John), Spin It Records (Moncton), Back Alley (Charlottetown), Taz Records (Halifax) and online at killchicago.com.
