Following up on the successful release of their debut album Self Titled last month, Black Tooth Grinn has made a second song available for free download. “Tickle” is the John Gill (Heartwood Slacks) penned follow up to “1969”, which found play on CBC Radio One and Caper Radio upon its release.

“The diversity of Black Tooth Grinn is an exciting part of seeing them play,” says local promoter Joe Costello of We Unite! Music. “Each member writes and sings their own songs with collaboration from the other members. It creates a wonderful group dynamic that especially shines in their live show.”
Black Tooth Grinn has been garnering attention for their magnetic live shows and earnest songwriting since forming in 2007. Coming from post-industrial Sydney, a town known as much for the remnants of industrial exploitation as it is for a deep culture of music, has influenced the band to push a little harder to shine through the smoke and fog. Playing to sellout crowds in Cape Breton, they have perfected a unique sound that modernizes the old town New Orleans blues aesthetic with the huge guitars of classic rock.
Black Tooth Grinn will be at The Phoenix Nightclub in North Sydney on Friday, February 14, for a special Valentines Day show alongside Static in Action and northside youngsters The Wazzo. The band will be in Sydney on Saturday, February 15, at the Fox Den in Ashby and will feature a collaboration with rising country star Jordan Musycsyn called THE ELECTRIC GRUB. Both shows begin at 10pm and are $8 admission.
