“It’s not called ‘Gravez’ for any real reason but may refer to the impending lurk of death,” reveals singer/producer Dan Lee enigmatically. “Some of it is about instances in life, some of it general imagery, or nonsense.”

Seamlessly following on from last LP ‘Tosta Mista’, the new record is a continuation of the spontaneous, lively, heavily splintered guitar sound that has secured Hooded Fang as nominees for Canadian Mercury equivalent, the Polaris Prize. Yet whereas ‘Tosta Mista’ was a danceable take on real life’s ups and downs, ‘Gravez’ is a skewed, off-the-wall piece of moving punk pop fiction blurring the boundaries between what’s real and fake, each track powering along like an interstellar joyride through The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
