By Jason Thomas

It’s been almost 11 years since the release of the last Grandaddy album, and our first taste of the forthcoming record was in the form of the super-Grandaddyish “Way We Won’t.” Well, Jason Lytle and the gang have shared another track, and what do you know? It’s a total jam just like “WWW.” If you’re looking to see the band live here in Chicago, there’s nothing on the horizon in our neck of the woods, just a few shows here in the States in San Francisco and New York, and a whole bunch of European shows after that.
