about

With their debut full-length album Can’t Slow Down, Graveltooth managed to capture lightning in a bottle as they balanced their talent as songwriters alongside the instrumental prowess and rock and roll attitude that has made them such an explosive live act. Chris “Frenchie” Smith, the Austin-based producer known for his work with acts like Built to Spill, The Toadies, Meat Puppets and a slew of local favorites, was the perfect pick to help Graveltooth harness their energy in the studio and the chemistry meant they were able to cut the album in just six days.

“We knew exactly what we wanted to do. We're trying to tap into that main vein of rock and roll attitude, so it felt right to do it quick and dirty and do it with a guy who knows how to make a rock and roll record. He did his homework and we did ours,” says Evan Bozarth.

The attitude of the music also comes from the songwriting, which is mainly helmed by guitarist Curtis Pierce who drew from his working class roots for lyrical inspiration. “There are moments of happiness and euphoria and moments of struggle. I'm a blue collar guy and this life isn't always going to be easy and you gotta struggle sometimes...these songs reflect the ups and downs of that lifestyle.”

You can hear these ups and downs in the pacing of the record, which jumps seamlessly from a place of confidence and rock and roll swagger on songs like the funky “Baby Love”, “Can’t Slow Down”, and “Dirty Little Secret”, to vulnerability and insecurity on songs like “Bottom of the Bottle” and the potent album closer “Every Good Woman”. Playing off both of those perspectives gives the record an ebb and a flow and a sort of humanity that ties all the songs together.

Graveltooth’s reputation in Austin is firmly established, and with the release of Can’t Slow Down they share their distinct, Hudson Bend-influenced sound with old fans and new around the country. Let’s just hope the rest of the U.S. is as ready as Austin to take a rock and roll trip with Graveltooth.
