THE GRISWOLDS RELEASE NEW SINGLE "ROLE MODELS" AND ANNOUNCE UPCOMING AUSTRALIAN TOUR 

The Griswolds release new single ''Role Models'' from their sophomore album HIGH TIMES FOR LOW LIVES and announce that they'll be once again hitting the road on tour throughout Australia.

"Role Models" features The Griswolds signature unapologetic energy, with catchy pop vocals layered over edgy synths, sharp samples and syncopated claps.
The track was written in isolation two hours north of Sydney and produced in Los Angeles with Grammy Award winning producer Andrew Dawson (Kanye West), the title of which is a tongue in cheek reference to toxic celebrity behaviour and the psychology of celebrity worship.

“It's a really strange and beautiful thing when people say they look up to you or you inspire them. I remember thinking one day "us? role models? Hell no, no one should be looking up to us” So I wrote down that lyric "we ain't your role models" - Chris Whitehall

2016's release of HIGH TIMES FOR LOW LIVES saw The Griswolds take inspiration from sources as diverse as Tame Impala’s ‘Currents’ and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’ creating an album which is draped in swathes of funk, R'n'B, hip-hop and electro. Having sold out nine dates on their US Tour already, make sure you see the Sydney four-piece perform their sun-soaked shimmery pop anthems across Australia this April & May.
