GRiZ - Can’t Hold Me Down” (Ft. Tash of the London Souls) : Must Hear Collaboration + New Album Announce

GRiZ Can't Hold Me Down

GRiZ’s album is just around the corner! He’s announced the upcoming LP is titled Good Will Prevail and will arrive Sept. 23 via his own All Good Records. In addition to this exciting news, he’s been kind enough to share the project’s second single and standout track, “Can’t Hold Me Down” featuring Tash of London Souls, which is sounding different from anything we’ve heard GRiZ do the past.

The TSIS regular is fresh off “Before I Go”, alongside frequent collaborator Leo Napier, his first offering since his Chasing The Golden Hour mixtape last fall. "Can't Hold Me Down" embodies a raw, edgy approach as GRiZ receives an assist from Tash of London Souls, a New York Rock duo that have become known for their high-energy, classic rock sound. The unlikely collaboration finds hard hitting, classic rock guitar riffs and excited vocals placed in conjunction with GRiZ’s energetic sax solo and signature, gritty bass. 

Good Will Prevail’’s tracklist spans 13 tracks and includes the hit “Good Times Roll” (Ft. Big Gigantic) and recent single “Before I Go” (Ft. Leo Napier). His fifth studio album finds additional contributions from Sunsquabi, Brasstracks, Eric Krasno, and more. Much of the album was recorded while touring as he utilized studios everywhere from his Colorado home to New Orleans, Hollywood Hills, and Detroit’s iconic Tempermill Studios among others. 

GRiZ can always be counted on to spread a positive message, and that’s exactly what we have with “Can’t Hold Me Down”. Read about the song from GRiZ himself: 

"Politics, the news, senseless deaths... got me feelin' pretty helpless recently. I wrote Can't Hold Me Down as a piece of motivation for those who are feelin' down and struggling in their lives. 

I saw a live performance video of Tash playing and knew instantly we had to work together. I wrote the demo and sent it his way. What I got back was magic. Tash is perfect on this tune. 

Don't curse the darkness, be a light. Be the force that pushes others to keep their heads high and stay inspired. Stand up for what you believe in at all costs. Never give up on people.”

Win A VIP Experience to Electric Forest & Go Undercover With Griz on Forest Adventure + 2016 Artist Meet & Greets Announced

EF Meet & Greet TSIS Booth Throwback

We are only days away from once again being amongst the beautiful nature of JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan for Electric Forest's fifth edition. From the event's impressive lineup to the sheer fact that the festival sold out before the billing was even announced, it is fair to say this will be the festival's biggest year yet.

Festival attendees should also be on the lookout for a few surprise sets to pop up throughout the weekend, especially on Friday night for the TSIS' Secret B2B Sets! Additionally, we are excited to host our annual 'Meet & Greet' booth with some of your favorite artists who you will be able to take pictures with. We will have a professional photographer onsite, but we encourage selfies as well, pending on the artist's availability. All photos taken by our photographer will be uploaded shortly after the festival weekend.

Some of you may be asking, "But wait, what if I wasn't lucky enough to get weekend passes before they sold out?" Have no fear, TSIS is here. We are hooking up one lucky winner and their friend with weekend passes to Electric Forest. They will also have the very unique opportunity to meet up with GRiZ for not your typical meet & greet, they will actually throw on a costume and then frolic around the forest, undercover, of course. To top it all off, you'll be able to watch GRiZ close out the festival in style from the side of the stage.

Make sure to catch GRiZ in the forest this weekend as he has quite a few things in store including throwing an All Good Records Stage takeover in the Forest at the Observatory Stage on Saturday full of artists from the roster and guests and then on Sunday on the Sherwood Court Manic Focus, The Floozies and Sunsquabi play sets leading up to GRiZ closing out final hours of the funk filled weekend.

Good luck, and we will hopefully see you in the forest!
