Grayscale Release “In Violet,” Announce Nella Vita and More

Philly-based, pop-punk band Grayscale burst onto the scene with their 2017 album Adornment. Since then the band has established themselves by touring with bands like The Maine, State Champs and Real Friends; and acting as a clothing brand with limited merch releases, which sold out within a day. The band’s at the beginning of their career — but already making the most of it.

On July 1, Grayscale made a game-changing career move; they announced their sophomore release Nella Vita and dropped their second single “In Violet.” The track isn’t your run-of-the-mill, pop-punk song. Incorporating synths and pop melodies, “In Violet” is a clean track. Some regular pop-punk fans may have to warm up to the track, but once they do they’ll be singing along just the same.

The music video for “In Violet” follows a grieving mother on the day of her daughter’s funeral and when she looks into the casket her daughter’s gone. Suddenly her daughter appears at the back of the church and they reconnect for one last time, while the band plays behind them. The other funeral attendees get their “one last time” with someone they love as well, while purple smoke consumes everyone to bury them “In Violet.”

Fans only have to wait two more months for Nella Vita‘s September 6 release on Fearless Records, but the band has released the track listing and pre-order bundles on their website.

1. Just Right
2. Baby Blue
3. In Violet

The tour features support from Belmont, Bearings and Rich People. Tickets for Grayscale’s Nella Vita tour go on sale Friday, July 12 at 12 p.m. local time. VIP packages can be found here.
