Stimpies join The Grogans for a new show at HABA as part of The Grogans’ NO THANKS tour.

Genre-expanding outfit The Grogans are a trio of best mates from Melbourne who explore nuanced manoeuvres in surf, punk, blues, garage, psych, rockabilly and reggae. Banding together in high school playing backyard gigs and weekly jam nights, seasoned musicians Quin Grunden, Angus Vasic and Jordan Lewis shared their first official release Cacteyed in the summer of ‘16. The EP’s instantaneous and lasting reception was matched by the band’s playful successor Twangs n’ Cans the following year. 

Their third EP Grogan Grove (2018) featured the outfit’s still lauded live favourite ‘Lemon To My Lime’ which has now clocked over four million Spotify streams and subsequently catapulted The Grogans to the top of the nation’s ones-to-watch list. That same summer, the boys kicked off their first national headline tour including festival slots at Melbourne Music Week’s CIVIC SOUNDS and NinchFest.

Cutting the ribbon on their debut album Just What You Want, 2019 saw the band perform at Loch Hart Music Festival and sell out multiple venues across the country including Howler, Workers Club, Yah Yah’s and Cherry Bar. In the year following, The Grogans dropped their self-recorded and mixed magnum opus Day / To / Day resulting in a completely sold-out National Tour of Australia.

The Grogans have supported the likes of Ocean Alley, Maddy Jane, Northeast Party House, Drunk Mums and The Chats and Hockey Dad across 18 dates on their 2022 Regional Tour. 

As well as festivals & showcases during 2022 including a Rolling Stone x Sailor Jerry Showcase, NYE on the Hill (VIC), Great Escape Festival (TAS), Drift Festival on the Mornington Peninsula & a free all-ages headline at Fed Square (Melbourne) playing to over 1000 people. 

The band have released three singles from their next album, taking the most recent ‘Inside My Mind’ on the road around Australia (Sold out shows at Corner Hotel – Melbourne, Jive Bar – Adelaide, The Aardvark – Perth), including their first international shows in New Zealand. 

With the announce of their forthcoming album Which Way Is Out, The Grogans have dropped the fourth single No Thanks (I’m Going Surfing). This playful track, both lyrically & sonically, showcases the bands plethora of song-writing capabilities yet again, differing from influences displayed in the previous three singles – all wrapped up in a 3-minute anthem. 

Which Way Is Out is the bands third studio album and is set to be released on 28th of October 2022
