'Nella Vita' is shaping up to be an incredible album already.
Grayscale are gearing up to release their third studio album 'Nella Vita' on September 06, and ahead of that release they've just dropped another taste of what we're all in for.
'Old Friends' marks the third track to be released off 'Nella Vita', and follows 'Painkiller Weather' and 'In Violet' which were both released earlier this year.

Inside the current issue of Rock Sound, we caught up with Grayscale frontman Collin Walsh about the new album, and what's inspired it.
“For me, music and lyrics and poetry, that is my outlet,” Collin shared. “I don’t talk about this stuff - that’s just how I grew up. I didn’t talk about feelings. When it comes to songs, it’s the purest way for me to explain something, the way that I’ve felt. ‘Painkiller Weather’ is a good example. It’s this real story about being in love with someone who is struggling with an addiction, but I put it in this happy- sounding vessel - a poppy, summery rock song. On this record there was so much more that I wanted to say, and sometimes in more explicit ways.”
He later continued, “I definitely don’t like the way drugs are glamourised in so many ways right now. It’s not done in an honest way in so much media and pop culture. People can talk about what they want to talk about, I stay out of people’s business, but this is me telling the story from an honest perspective. That’s just a way for me to cleanse myself of it, explaining this story of a person close to me, because it eats me up thinking about it. I have to find my way to talk about it and bring it to light.”
