Greybeards have announced details of their highly anticipated sophomore album. Titled 'For The Wilder Minds', the Swedish rock band have delivered on the promise of their debut and crafted a music collection brimming with killer atmospheric rock songs, with an alternative vibe and steroid infused pop licks.
Lead single 'Fast Asleep' sets the tone for Greybeards new album; melodic hooks with deep grooves, powerful musicianship and vocals, thought provoking lyrics and a chorus that will stick in your head for weeks to come. The same can be said for all the tracks, with 'Peace Of Mind', 'One In A Billion', and 'Cold December' particulary showcasing the talent of this young four piece rock band from Gävle, Sweden.
