    Grinder Blues to Release Debut Album in August - Find out who, what and when!

    Megaforce Records will release Grinder Blues' self-titled debut album on August 19.

    Who are they? Glad ya asked. They are the powerhouse trio that teams King's X legend dUg Pinnick with two gritty, hard rocking (and Emmy Award-winning!) roots music MVPs: Jabo Bihlman on guitar and vocals and Scot 'Little' Bihlman on drums, percussion and vocals.

    Grinder Blues is like a shot of adrenaline to the heart of the genre. It's 10 original, high-voltage songs sizzled with daredevil virtuosity and rock with unrestrained energy, blasting a sound minted in the urban canyons of Chicago and the swamps of rural Louisiana during the 1950s into the present thanks to rumbling guitars, freight train rhythms and bass legend dUg Pinnick's virtuoso licks and elegantly gritty rock 'n' soul voice.

    This is gonna be goooood!

    "The idea for the music was to stay away from the clichés and rock out," dUg explained. "If we felt like we were heading into any songs that seemed like standard blues lyrically or musically, we made it a point to veer in the opposite direction."

    Will you get your Grinder Blues on this summer?
