For those who haven’t been following: Paper + Plastick Records has a new band, West Grand, giving off Midwestern cow-punk/punk rock and roll vibes set to release their debut S/T EP digitally on August 9. (Hey, that’s today!) West Grand is based around singer/songwriter Kyle Green (Break Anchor) who takes ownership over depression as an unrivaled motivator, if not heavy-handedly. Coming together with fellow-Break Anchorian bassist Chris Golan, and Shawn Gryzb on drums West Grand previously streamed “Here to Stay” on Dying Scene and today we’re celebrating the EP release with “Hostage Situation”. Stream “Hostage Situation” below.

Here’s a new group to get excited about. Recently signed to Paper + Plastick Records, West Grand is a Detroit post-hardcore, mellowed out punk rock and roll band that started out the way so many pornos do – with a couple best buds and a few recordings on a cell phone. Their self-titled EP will be available for download on the Paper + Plastick website in a week or so on August 9.
West Grand’s music goes well with late-7Seconds, Rites of Spring and The Get Up Kids. Almost Strokes-ish even, with Kyle Green playing host over (perhaps) a more stripped-down (nasally) Casablancas… and I definitely don’t mean that in a bad way. “Like his mom always said, ‘Honey, you write your best songs when you’re feeling down’, and we couldn’t agree more. Thanks Depression!! These songs are so relatable, we’ve all been there. We all grieve in different ways. For West Grand, this is our way.”
West Grand is streaming a new single off that 4-track EP ahead of it’s release. You can find “Here to Stay” exclusively here on the site, below.
