SPIN PREMIERES TRACK FROM GRANDADDY FRONTMAN JASON LYTLE

Spin.com is debuting a brand new track from Grandaddy front man Jason Lytle’s new solo album Dept. of Disappearance. The track is a melodic and bittersweet anthem entitled “Get Up and Go” and can be found here:http://www.spin.com/#articles/grandaddy-jason-lytles-get-up-and-go-premiere The new album comes out this October 16th via Anti- Records.

As a solo artist Lytle has created a catalog of unique and emotionally evocative records. Dept. of Disappearance is the anticipated follow up to his acclaimed 2009 album Yours Truly, the Commuter. The new album plays like an emotionally resonant soundtrack for a non-existent cinematic masterpiece. On it the sometimes reclusive, always intriguing musician has deftly infused the toil of ordinary existence with a sweeping sonic beauty.

Early Acclaim for Jason Lytle’s Dept. Of Disappearance:

“Antique synths in varying states of dilapidation spring into life… and rarely does the comfort of sadness feel so apt” - Mojo

“Inventively employing computer “tweakery”, Lytle concocts synthesized symphonies and celestial chorales, with emotionally charged results”. - Uncut

“Lytle’s melodic warmth provides a protective layer against the heartbreak and horror” – Q Magazine

Jason Lytle will be performing songs from Dept. Of Disappearance live on a headlining tour of the North American West Coast starting this October. Sea of Bees will be joining him on all dates.

Live Dates: 10-16 Barboza Seattle WA 10-17 Holocene Portland OR 10-19 Swedish American Hall San Francisco CA 10-21 Soho Santa Barbara CA 10-22 Casbah San Diego CA 10-23 The Bootleg Theater Los Angeles CA 10-24 Largo at the Coronet Theatre Los Angeles CA
