GRiZ, one of the most unique and exciting names in electronic music, and has just released a brand new song titled "Need This" to launch both a recap of his prevouis fall tour and the announcment of an upcoming nationwide run of shows being billed as the "Power In Numbers" Spring Tour along with Pretty Lights Music artist Michal Menert. The new song titled "Need This" that plays in the background for the video above is a "B-Side" from his recent Rebel Era album. The new single is just as incredible as anything on the album with some colossal bass swoops and soulful melodies.
This past fall, GRiZ turned heads by bringing his own custom production light rig for the first time with unbelievable success (As seen in the video above); shutting down packed venues from San Francisco to New York City on his "Rebel Era Tour". We hope you can make it out to at least one of these sure to be unforgettable shows; and read what Grant had to say about how the last tour impacted this new one:
"After seeing countless shows and finishing my first national headline tour I want to keep the show experience new and exciting by experimenting with different ways to present live music. I can't wait to get back out on the road to see you guys." -GRiZ
