Isle of Wight punks GRADE 2 herald their forthcoming album with a new video.
The infectious, anthemic release-valve 'Under The Streetlight' is taken from the band's self-titled third album which is due out on 17 February.
“Even though there are times when life can feel stagnant or things aren’t going to plan, there will always be people there to support you whether it’s mates, a partner, or your family," say the band.
The band's second album for Tim Armstrong's Hellcat label, following on from 2019's Graveyard Island, the new album found the trio back at the Rancid guitarist's Ship Rec Studio in LA. "Returning to Ship Rec Studio resparked that magic dynamic," says guitarist Jack Chatfield. "When we're in there I feel like we reach our full potential. Tim would offer tweaks and tips for some songs, while others he'd compliment the first time we’d play them."
Grade 2 is available to pre-order here.

March 10th, 2023 – Louisiana, Bristol
