Preparing to kick off 2016 with a bang, Grizfolk will release their highly anticipated full-length debut album, Waking Up The Giants [Virgin Records], on Friday January 8 through iTunes. The digital pre-order is now live, and allows fans an instant grat download of the single “Troublemaker” as well as the four tracks off the previously released EP From The Spark. Additionally, the band has launched a pre-order through their online store for an exclusive vinyl bundle of the debut album, signed by the band, which is available here: http://smarturl.it/GrizfolkShop.

In support of the album’s release, the critically acclaimed Los Angeles alternative rock band unveils dates for their 2016 winter headlining tour, beginning Thursday January 21 at Voodoo Room in San Diego, CA. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now for fans who have signed up to the band’s mailing list: http://smarturl.it/RoadworthyList, and go onside to the public on Friday. Tickets go on-sale tomorrow. This month, they’ll be touring across Canada with X Ambassadors before returning stateside for a string of radio shows in December.

“When we all met in a studio in Santa Monica in 2013, little did we know that we would be writing our debut full length album Waking Up the Giants,” said Grizfolk. ”Looking back and listening to the album now that it's completed, it truly is a journal of memories and emotions that we've gathered these past 2 years. We can only hope that you'll enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.”

As “Troublemaker” continues to steadily rise at Alternative Radio, Grizfolk teams up with Vevo to premiere its music video later this month. The clip matches the track’s energetic upbeat bounce, soulful riffing, and massive chant with an appropriately explosive visual.

Critics are also enthusiastically responding to Grizfolk. Recently, Paste Magazine described “Troublemaker” as “a raunchy mix of electronic synth and guitar,” and Spin named them one of “Five Can’t Miss Emerging Artists at Voodoo Fest,” adding, “For those who love unapologetic, badass alt-rock staples but want something more, we give you Grizfolk.”

Recently, they gave a rousing and raucous performance during halftime at a Chicago Bears game on the legendary Soldier Field. “Troublemaker” is also included in Activision’s Guitar Hero Live.

Grizfolk are about to become your favorite new band. You might have seen them supporting Haim or Bastille, and they made their television debut earlier this year on the Late Show with David Letterman. They’ve got a bevy of festivals under their belts including Firefly Music Festival, Hangout Festival, Free Press Summer Festival, Boston Calling Music Festival, Voodoo Music + Experience, and more. In 2014, Grizfolk blasted on to the scene with their debut EP, From the Spark. Tastemaker Jason Bentley of KCRW proclaimed them one of his new favorite bands, and they appeared on “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” Spotify pegged them as an “Artist to Watch” in 2014, while they scored placements on MTV’s Catfish, Finding Carter, and Generation Cryo as well as The CW’s The Originals and Hart of Dixie. They also penned the end title sequence for the DreamWorks film Mr. Peabody & Sherman.

Brothers Boots and Cobo Copeland have been making music together their entire lives. From an early age, they self-taught themselves drums, guitar, and bass, filling their pastor father’s church with songs bathed in light and life. It’s the bond between Boots and Cobo that gives Knox Hamilton’s music a degree of familial intuition; a genetic thread of energy running between the two.

Knox Hamilton (comprised of Boots and Cobo and their longtime buddy and talented guitarist Drew Buffington) doesn’t make songs by mistake. Rather, they work hard at their craft, stacking gorgeous vocals on top of relatable lyrics and restless melodies. Every note, every chord, every lyric is intentionally created to wrap your mind in a warm embrace while still setting your soul free to wander the cosmos. One listen to the first single “Washed Up Together” from their debut album The Heights and you’ll agree the result is hard to argue with.

Before The Heights, the band released a 4-song EP called How's Your Mind that featured the runaway single "Work It Out." The addictive tune raced to the top of SiriusXM's Alt18 charts and reached "near-Adele levels on alt-rock radio" (Huffington Post), garnering KH the hard-earned respect of the indie rock community and over 7.9 million streams on Spotify. And that was just the beginning. Knox Hamilton is poised to break into the zeitgeist with innovative new songs filled with blistering electricity that still remind you of something real and familiar.

Creating music that nods to their small-town church roots while dedicating themselves to their far-reaching artistry, Knox Hamilton is a band built to last. And Boots, Cobo, and Drew are prepared to make that happen.
