grandson – I Love You, I’m Trying Tour



FEBRUARY 28, 2023 – Platinum-selling alternative artist grandson has returned with his new single
“Eulogy” via Fueled By Ramen. Available today on all streaming platforms, “Eulogy” notably marks
grandson’s first new music since 2021.
Speaking about the new song, grandson elaborated, “‘Eulogy’ was written in the aftermath of a bad
mushrooms trip this summer, which led me to scrapping my album and admitting to myself and others
that I was struggling with fantasies of self harm. It’s easy to feel nihilistic or cynical about the future, and
there’s a strange comfort in indulging in the depressing absurdity of day to day life with the only people
in the world that understand you.”
On “Eulogy,” grandson leans into a laidback flow punctuated by confessional musings, existential anxiety,
and apocalyptic implications. His lyrical introspection gives way to an infectious refrain, “I’m not sure that
anything matters at all, it’s the eulogy—for you and me.” The song highlights his inimitable genre
alchemy, fusing alternative, hip-hop, and rock seamlessly, and paves the way for additional new music to
be released later this year.
“Eulogy” follows the release of grandson’s 2021 single “Drop Dead” featuring GRAMMY-nominated pop
superstar Kesha and Travis Barker. The track originally appeared as a solo effort on grandson’s debut LP
Death of an Optimist before being reworked. Rolling Stone proclaimed, “‘Drop Dead’ moves effortlessly
between atmospheric, pop-leaning verses and a straight-to-the-rafters arena rock chorus.” Additionally,
Variety christened it “an empowering call for perseverance in the face of hardship.”
Next up, grandson will embark on a massive global headline tour. Kicking things off with a two-month
North American trek, the first leg is set to begin on May 12th in San Diego, CA at the House of Blues and
visits major markets coast-to-coast. Featuring special guests K. Flay, Jack kays, and No Love For The Middle
Child on select dates, It rolls through Chicago, IL for a performance at the House of Blues on June 11th
before concluding in Hampton Beach, NH at Wally’s on July 11th. The upcoming tour will also see grandson
visiting Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Europe with support for those dates to be announced

@ Festival Date

grandson molds genres, sculpting rock, hip-hop, and electronic into a vision of alternative you’ve never
quite heard, seen, or felt before. Having amassed a staggering 1 billion streams and counting, the
platinum-certified Canadian / American maverick flouts boundaries only to achieve stylistic unity with
alacrity. He infiltrated culture as a sonic insurgent with a pair of EPs—a modern tragedy Vol. 1-2—and the
platinum single “Blood // Water.” In 2020, he continued to engage with his epically enigmatic full-length
debut, Death of An Optimist. He’s the rare outlier who can appear with Senator Bernie Sanders on a
livestream and contribute two songs to James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad Original Motion Picture
Soundtrack, namely “Oh No!!!” and “Rain” —also
remixed by star Idris Elba. Meanwhile, he’s impressively collaborated with everyone from Mike Shinoda
of Linkin Park and Steve Aoki to Travis Barker, Kesha, K. Flay, X Ambassadors, Whethan, Two Feet, and
DE’WAYNE, to name a few. Speaking of high-powered collabs, he impressively joined forces with Tom
Morello for “Hold The Line” and performed the latter on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with the
legendary guitarist. In addition, he has incited the applause of Rolling Stone, Variety, Billboard and many
more as he continues to quietly reshape alternative with more music and surprises in 2023
