New Jerseyâs psychedelic pop-rockers The Grip Weeds bring you House of Vibes Revisited, their highly acclaimed debut album, remixed, reissued and re-imagined for the 21st Century. Featuring an impressive blend of Beatle-esque sensibilities fused with rock edginess, the bandâs trademark lush harmonies and high caliber songwriting, the original release put The Grip Weeds on the map in the â90s. In addition to striking new mixes of the CDâs original 12 tracks, House of Vibes Revisited premieres previously unheard demos revealing works in progress and live tracks from 1994-1995, virtually doubling the length of the original â90s release. Extensive liner notes, interviews with band members, unreleased photos and an enhanced CD link to a special online âsecret attic spaceâ packed with additional material are an added treat for fans to explore.
Having already remixed and remastered their second album The Sound is in You in 2003, a âfresh coat of paintâ on HOUSE OF VIBES seemed a natural next step. The original multi-track tapes were transferred and remixed using modern digital technology in a way that would not have been possible even a few years back; the albumâs remix is a dramatic and sometimes astonishing sonic improvement, allowing listeners to hear the music as the band intended but couldnât achieve due to technical limitations in 1994.
HOUSE OF VIBES became not only the title of the bandâs album but also the name of The Grip Weedsâ recording studio, a full-fledged analog/digital facility stocked full of modern and vintage gear. Forerunners in pioneering the now ubiquitous practice of professional home studio recording, The Grip Weeds have produced and engineered all of their own releases there and those of many other artists as well. Most recently, Kurt engineered and co-produced Meet the Smithereens, a CD tribute to the Beatles by New Jersey's The Smithereens.
The Grip Weeds are singing and songwriting brothers Rick and Kurt Reil on guitar and drums respectively, guitarist Kristin Pinell and bassist Michael Kelly. Together, the Grip Weeds take elements like the harmonic purity and psychedelic spirit of â60s rock and the visceral power of early â70s classics into the modern era. Surrounded by their vintage equipment, this talented four-piece band records slices of perfect, radio-friendly guitar-pop- Psychedelic enough to appeal to record junkies and Sixties-retro fans, but edgy enough to fit seamlessly into a modern rock set. GIANT ON THE BEACH, the bandâs last full-length release, garnered excellent reviews and significant Triple A radio airplay. Several Grip Weeds tracks have also received airplay on Little Steven Van Zandtâs Underground Garage radio show, and one of these, âLoveâs Lost On Youâ, is featured on the Wicked Cool Records compilation, The Coolest Songs in the World Vol. 2...

"The natural progression from the Who to the Jam to Oasis - cool!" -Village Voice
"The Grip Weeds have a palpable group chemistry that so many bands boast of but so few actually possess." -Magnet
