Grooms Premiere “I Think We’re Alone Now”

GROOMS PREMIERE "I THINK WE'RE ALONE NOW" VIDEO. NEW ALBUM "INFINITY CALLER" AVAILABLE 9/3 ON WESTERN VINYL

It was recently announced that Grooms were the latest signing to the long-running Western Vinyl imprint, and now you can watch the video for the single “I Think We’re Alone Now” above.

On September 3, 2013 the Brooklyn-based band Grooms will release their latest LP, Infinity Caller. Harking back to the peak of boisterous guitar-driven indie rock in its heyday, the eleven-song record features many finely tuned layered guitars. With the departure of drummer Jim Sykes, the band has also expanded its line-up. Joining long-time members Travis Johnson and Emily Abruso, are Steve Levine (who is also a member of comedic/creative team Captain Hippo, and responsible for shooting the “Alone” video) and Jay Heiselmann (of The Immaculates and French Miami).

Travis Johnson’s OCD (a religion-centric form of OCD called Scrupulosity) has guided all of his adult life’s pursuits, from inspiring his initial interest in music to his current day job making guitar pedals at Brooklyn’s Death By Audio.  After releasing two albums on a prestigious indie label, the band still hadn’t gained enough traction to support themselves with their music and they were understandably ready to call it quits.  However, in 2011, impressed with their albums and live shows, author Michael Azerrad invited Grooms to perform at his Our Band Could Be Your Life show alongside St. Vincent, Ted Leo, Wye Oak, Dan Deacon, and WV alumni Dirty Projectors.  It was a huge opportunity for the band, and the catalyst for what would become their new album, Infinity Caller.
