Grade 2 Share "Tired Of It" + Announce US Tour Dates

UK punk band, Grade 2 have released the music video for “Tired Of It” off their forthcoming record Graveyard Island, out October 11 via Hellcat. The track “addresses the modern issue of the severe lack of privacy the people have today due to current technology, social media, targeted advertisements, etc. We live in an age where businesses care more about the money they can make from selling personal data than the privacy of their users and we’re fucking tired of it," explains vocalist/guitarist Jack Chatfield. The video was filmed at Tim Armstrong’s Shiprec Studios just after wrapping the album. Check it out, here.

Graveyard Island, the band’s third album and Hellcat debut, was recorded and produced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong and mixed by The Interrupters’ Kevin Bivona, The album offers proof that punk rock is still as relevant in 2019 as it was in 1976. “Although we’re more than forty years on from when punk began, I actually think the times are very similar now to how they were back then,” says Sid Ryan. “The political climate today means that people see the worst in everything, which means that for us there’s a lot to write about. Everything in the country is pretty much turning to shit! There are certain parts of our record that would make sense were it released in 1976.”

The band has will hit the road on their first-ever US tour with a series of dates kicking off October 4 in Boston, MA and wrapping October 30 in Los Angeles opening up for British punk band The Adicts. For ticket information visit,
