A quick description of the sound could be “Hard Indie Rock” – perhaps Queens of the Stone Age mixed with Yeah Yeah Yeahs. What’s so special about the music? It has, even in the most dark intense moments, an embedded smile – a wish that the sound touches your heart in a way that makes you feel happy to be alive and good about who you are. In the meantime, the music is purely designed to get your heart pumping, your feet dancing, and spark a musical love affair with the band for life. Related by blood and the deepest of loyalty, and perhaps unique enough to be the only band of it’s type, Grown Up Avenger Stuff combines a deep love for music with a natural talent for building songs that connect with heart and yet are just plain fun to enjoy. Formed in 2009 in Charlotte, NC, the band, through an approach of uncompromising high energy live shows and unapologetically growing their fanbase, has been building popularity and ever reaching toward their goal of “saving the world one song at a time.” In love with the road experience of meeting new people and spreading music, 2013 saw seen Grown Up Avenger Stuff touring through the US Southeast, including 9 shows at SXSW, and the highly popular Launch Music Festival in Pennsylvania, in support of their critically acclaimed self produced CD release of Sparkleton. (Available at iTunes, Amazon, etc.. and of course at every G.U.A.S. Show!) Summer 2012: Chosen out of over 400 bands to represent US in Canada tour, and then touring the US coast to coast including a spot at revered music festival Bele Chere, the band spent the rest of the year relentlessly growing fans and touring to promote their 2012 CD release of Alive (Available at iTunes, Amazon, etc.. and of course at every G.U.A.S Show!)
