Grandaddy - El Caminos in the West

Story by Jack Foley

GRANDADDY release a sublime new single, El Caminos In The West on August 25, taken from the band’s critically-acclaimed, top 25 album Sumday.

The track comes on on 2 CDs and enhanced CD/DVD featuring new and live tracks, as well as the hysterical new video to El Caminos, which features five 11-year-old female Grandaddy impersonators resplendent in stick-on beards and trucker caps.

The girls scissor-kick their way through the tune, while Grandaddy wile away the hours on a cruise oblivious to the chaos the girls are causing in their absence.

The track listing across all formats is as follows:

El Caminos In The West
Beautiful Ground (Live – XM Satellite Radio)
My Little Skateboarding Problem

EL Caminos In The West
Now It’s On (Live – Colin Murray Radio Show/BBC)
Derek Spears

In what is proving to be an excellent return for the band, Grandaddy played and experienced their first Glastonbury and loved it earlier this Summer.

They spent two days taking in the madness and managed to get drummer, Aaron, onstage with the Polyphonic Spree, clad in a red robe.

Now, the band head off to the States for the first leg of a US tour, before returning to Europe to make more friends at the Lowlands and Pukkelpop festivals (among others).

They then return to the UK for warm-up shows at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms on August 20, and Stoke Sugarmill on August 21, before playing Reading and Leeds Festivals on August 22 and 24, respectively.

Grandaddy also squeeze in a show on August 23, at the Edinburgh Liquid Rooms.

Having played several shows in an arm-sling and sitting down, guitarist Jim Fairchild is now fully recovered after his recent collision with an 18-wheeler production truck.

(Rumour has it the truck is still feeling a little off-colour!).
