UK/US Tour Alert: Gringo Star

Atlanta's Gringo Star are heading across the pond for a spell, to tour in support of their recent release, 'All Y'all'. Joining forces with the Black Lips on certain dates, Gringo embodies the rawness of the Lips, but stays delicate with harmonized-choral choruses. The above video for "Come On Now" is gritty, garage-rock-pop, something reminiscent to shaving your Mo-Hawk or your chest hair.
