THE GRATES

Photo Gallery: The Smith Street Band + The Grates + DEAFCULT - Crowbar, Brisbane (22.07.15)

The Smith Street Band join Brisbane stalwarts The Grates and newcomers DEAFCULT for a "secret" pre-Splendour In The Grass party!

the AU interview: The Grates (Brisbane) talks about 'Team Work Makes The Dream Work' National Tour

the AU review's Johnny Au sits down with Patience Hodgson and John Patterson from The Grates and talk about their upcoming "Team Work Makes The Dream Work" Australian Tour. Patience and John talks about the plans for the tour, John's broken arm, having Straight Arrows and Pleasure Symbols as their support acts, Patience getting back into touring shape after a long break and playing at Splendour In The Grass festival (their 5th appearance).

the AU interview: Patience Hodgson of The Grates talks their return to live stages, becoming a mum, Splendour & more!

Since releasing their fourth album Dream Team in November last year, Patience Hodgson and John Patterson of The Grates have been busy with the birth of their new daughter, along with managing their own record label and the couple’s cafe/bar, the Southside Tea Room. Now the band have just released a new music video for their track "Call Me" and are set to perform this and the rest of the album live for the very first time starting with the Splendour in The Grass festival in July before a run of east coast shows.

Music Video of the Day: The Grates "Call Me" (2015)

The Grates turn up the romantic ~sexy~ levels with their new music video for "Call Me" - when the thumbnail is Patience Hodgson staring seductively down the camera, rose between her teeth, you best know you've got to get that champagne on ice. As we get closer to the Brisbane trio's new run of tour dates that will bring them not only to Splendour, but venues down the coast for the first time in quite a while, this is classic Grates and a perfect little gift for fans who are only getting more eager to see them back onstage doing their thing.

The Grates announce Splendour in the Grass sideshows!

Following their anticipated return to Splendour in the Grass much-loved Australian band The Grates will be running up and down the East Coast on a limited three-date tour.

The talent-rich sunshine state celebrated another fantastic year of music and creativity at the Queensland Music Awards at Brisbane Powerhouse in New Farm on Monday Night, with big wins for Violent Soho, Sahara Beck, Bobby Alu, The Amity Affliction and Airling.

The Grates, Sheppard, DZ Deathrays, Airling and more announced as Queensland Music Awards finalists!

The Queensland Music Awards are coming around again for another year, with QMusic announcing the list of finalists selected for the 2015 awards. Over 40 judges from Australia and abroad have been listening to a whole range of music from Queensland artists and as the final list dictates, the diversity within the music community in this part of the country is well represented.

Single Stream: The Grates "It Won't Hurt Anymore" (2015)

The Grates showed that they definitely hadn't lost any of their edge in the time they'd been away, with their latest album Dream Team. There's something heated and hazy about some of the music on the record, a yearning for garage days gone by, but on the flipside, the Brisbane trio demonstrated that raw attitude and musical capability that first propelled them into the hearts and CD players of many in their early days.

Album Review: The Grates - Dream Team (2014 LP)

Even though The Grates are noted as Indie or Alternative Rock, their origins come to us in the ways of a traditional rock and roll band. They started as locals in Brisbane, who after getting some airtime on the radio, completely blew up. They come to us now with their fourth studio album, Dream Team.

Album News Weekly: 26th November 2014

In This Issue: This week is headed up by some big names with the return of The Smashing Pumpkins and The Grates, some UK rock and electronic exports, a mixtape featuring HAIM, and an artist that spent the year supporting Eminem.
