Good news about live shows is few and far between at the moment, but Grayscale are coming in clutch with something to look forward to! Our favourite pop-punk-and-beyond-ers have just announced a handful of shows for May 2021 that we can only hope comes with an appearance at Slam Dunk and maybe even new music.

We were gutted to miss their cancelled 2020 dates, scheduled for London’s Camden Assembly and Birmingham’s Academy 3, but silver linings abound – not only is London’s date upgraded to the iconic Underworld, but Manchester and Glasgow get to join in the party too! It’ll be Grayscale’s first time headlining in the UK as well, so they’re guaranteed to get a welcome to remember.

We love Grayscale’s high-energy style, drawing as much on the irresistible hooks of pop as they do on the raucous excitement of punk, and they definitely wowed us when we caught them out with Real Friends last year. For their return to the UK in 2021, however, they’ve got a pocketful of reimagined tracks from the wonderful Nella Vita that strip it down into something altogether different – we can’t say we’d complain about getting to have a boogie to the trumpet break in the new version of Baby Blue or swaying along to the dreamy acoustic Painkiller Weather!

Grayscale are a band with vivid drive and nowhere to go with up, so we know for sure that this tour is the first of many. Tickets are on sale now, and there’s no doubt they’re flying out, so don’t hesitate if you want to be a part of Grayscale history.

Tickets are available here.
