Listen to New Three-Track EP, Bangers[1].Zip HERE

Just two months after the release of Ride Waves, his most creative and collaborative studio album to date, GRiZ returns with three new tracks today via his Bangers[1].Zip EP – “Voodoo (feat. SUPERLOVE)”, “No Bad Trips”, and “Ice Cream”, all reminiscent of his heady bass sound with shades of reggae and dub step. For those who missed him on Season One of his Ride Waves tour, he also revealed a Season Two run across 18 cities in the US this fall, touching down in DC, Nashville, LA, SF, Chicago, double nights in Atlanta and more. Tickets for all live dates are available HERE, while the EP can be heard HERE.

GriZ’s Musical Journey

GRiZ’s musical history has seen him take a sonic journey through future-funk, glitch-hop, dub step, soul and beyond, with this next batch of releases staying true to his eclectic style. The lead track “Voodoo (feat. SUPERLOVE)” is a feel-good reggae jam, sliced up by heavy dub step drops and lyrical references to black magic and shamans. “No Bad Trips” follows in the same vein, with the prevalence of a signature funky horn section and cuts of head-banging sub-bass frequencies.

Fans may recognize “Ice Cream”, a track he has been previewing across Season One of his tour. At Detroit’s Movement, GRiZ waded through a massive crowd in Hart Plaza with a mobile ice cream cart, passing out treats to fans as the track looped over the speakers.

This next leg of his Ride Waves tour will see GRiZ take on massive venues like Boston’s Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion, Chicago’s Navy Pier at Festival Hall, Seattle’s Paramount Theatre, LA’s Hollywood Palladium and Berkeley’s Greek Theatre. Before embarking on Season Two this summer, he will return to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater for his fifth year of sold-out double-headers, performing foundational favorites from his 2010-2017 catalog on August 30, and a special Ride Waves / new music showcase on August 31.
