Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse Announce Album/New single & Video

Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse are happy to announce the release of their 3rd studio album, “Hot Nostalgia Radio” with the release of the first single, “Satisfy Your Queen”.

The California-based Roots-Rock band have been gaining momentum across the UK and Europe for their acclaimed genre-bending music and epic one-of-a-kind live shows. Beaux Gris Gris expand their eclectic nature once again with a 14-track new album, celebrating and paying homage to classic songwriting and crossing the genres that inspired their development as artists.

Kicking the party off with a bang, BGG&TA presents their scorching rock single, “Satisfy Your Queen”. A classic Rock n’ Roll underpinning, bluesy riffs and an empowering chorus, the song kicks up a heavy fuss out of the gate and doesn’t let up till the final note.

True to form the album might be hard to categorize, as the title suggests, it never strays away from being easily accessible. Front woman and songwriter, Greta Valenti explains: “We’ve had over 4 years to write this album. The last album was recorded in 2019, pre-pandemic and then we had to sit on it for two years. I had over 100 songs ideas waiting to go, but I really wanted this album to represent classic simple songwriting that strikes a chord within your soul. Every song should be a banger in some way, and these songs are really an evolution of who I am and who we are as a band. They’re not complicated on the surface, but I hope these songs make you feel and are added to the soundtrack of your life – fitting seamlessly with the songs you already know and love.”

Greta adds, “So even though the songs may veer from Rock to Blues to Soul to Americana-Country to Singer-Songwriter, they are still essentially 3 to 4 minute pop songs. Our fans aren’t genre-specific and neither are we. They just like good songs and wanna have a good time. And so do we.”

“I think our approach harkens back to when bands like the Beatles would write a bunch of different style songs, be it country, or psychedelic, or whatever they did they would always sound like the Beatles”, guitarist Robin Davey adds. “We certainly don’t sound like the Beatles, but I hope that no matter what we do we are still easily identifiable as Beaux Gris Gris”.

Beaux Gris Gris & The Apocalypse hit the road in support of the new record with a 19 date UK tour in April and May. It’s the bands most extensive UK tour yet with a number of shows already sold out. “Satisfy Your Queen” single and music video (created by Valenti & Davey through their creative agency, GROW VISION) is out on all streaming platforms worldwide starting Friday, Feb 23rd, 2024. Produced by Greta Valenti & Robin Davey. Mixed by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Feeder, Skunk Anansie).
