OLD GRAY – “Everything I Let Go & The Things I Refuse To” [EP] (2012)

Breathe in; breathe out. Take a moment to settle yourself, then forget all that noise. We have 4 emotional, loud, make-you-think tunes from OLD GRAY (It’s A Trap Records). Their newest 7″ is a thoughtfully brazen and aggressively youthful foray into what it’s like to feel like you’ve lost it all, even if you’re only 23. Some of that might already make you rethink jamming this, but stop. Old Gray make it all seem interesting and so cathartic that you’ll probably fire your overpriced therapist and hire these band dudes – Blake Solomon (

Here’s more about the release:

While it’s certainly open to interpretation, for us, this album is about moving on, in more ways than one. We’re moving on from past problems, from past regrets, from past memories. We’re moving on from our old sound, from midwestern emo, from high school. We hope these songs make you feel as cathartic listening to them as they made us feel when we wrote them.

If you are interested in our explanations behind each song, simply click on the individual track titles- we explained the thought process behind the majority of the lyrics.
