GrimSkunk, one of Canada’s most enduring and hard-working independent psych-rock-punk bands, is back with their new album Set Fire.

Recorded by Gus Van Go and Werner F (Priestess, The Stills) in Sydney, the long-awaited follow-up to Fires Under the Road is first and foremost a journey to the other side of the world, where spontaneity and instinctiveness were foremost from start to finish of the creative process.

Grimskunk-photo-de-presse-2012Delving into the band’s rich history of sound, influences and inventiveness, the album captures the GrimSkunk spirit with pure, raw energy and emotion; a whirlwind of punk angst and outrage, and the hopeful, almost hippie idealism of those who dare to dream. As always, the band allowed their environment ‘down under’ to permeate and inspire their music, inviting local Aboriginal artist and didjeribone player Tjupurru to perform and create freely on two songs: Falling into Shadow and Set Fire to the Nation, lending a dark trance-like and distinctly Australian sound to the tracks.

Tonight Friday January 24 at the Tatts Hotel in Lismore.
