Pure Grief are a brilliant, tongue-in-cheek, grunge/rock trio hailing from Caithness. Nominated for Best Rock/Alternative act at last month’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards, they’ve performed at the likes of XpoNorth and Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival as well as supporting bands such as Fatherson.
Their new double A-side Gossamer/Get It? Got It. Good is out on Friday with a launch gig the following day at Y-Not Bar & Grill in Thurso. Next month they co-headline a mini Scottish tour with Donnie Willow, visiting The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 14 December, the Tooth & Claw in Inverness on 15 December, The Tunnels in Aberdeen on 16 December and Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 17 December.
