“The Swedish Motel” Streaming Link:

On July 14th Grease Coast Rock N' Rollers, Andre Pettipas and The Giants are set to release their new single, «The Swedish Motel.» The first single since winning the 2017 Q104 Homegrown challenge which prizes included $5000 in recording from CodaPop studios in Halifax.

Infectious rock n' roll groove laced with a reggae backbone; «The Swedish Motel» takes you for a spin from gig to gig in a 70's Volvo Station Wagon. A tune about the tight-knit musical community, trials and tribulations of «making it» as a musician.

Co-Produced by Jon Landry (The Stanfields) and Jason Jenkyns (CodaPop Studios).

The band will be touring in support of the new single with dates in New Glasgow, Pictou, Truro, Toronto, Hamilton, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Winnipeg and more TBA. They also have opening slots on Nova Scotia dates with The Trews, Matt Mays and Wintersleep. Following their Canadian dates the boys will be heading to Orebro, Sweden to showcase at the “Live At Heart” festival/conference. During this time they will also be finishing shooting scenes for the music video to be released late September.

“The Swedish Motel” is available now on all major streaming platforms across the world.

Hailing from Nova Scotia, Canada; Andre Pettipas and The Giants bring you sing along anthem songs with ear worm hooks that will reel you in and release you into a musical wave of their signature “Grease Coast Rock N’ Roll.” No frills rock n’ roll heavily influenced by 90’s rock/pop mixed with classic rock lovability.

Brothers, Andre and Travis Pettipas join long-time friend, Marcus Cosh to complete the harmony driven trio. Their live show is full of antics that will keep your head out of your cellphone and engaged on the stage.

Picture Tom Petty meeting up with The Black Crowes for a writing session but Axl Rose crashes the party and gets his two cents in whenever he can.

There is only one word that comes to mind when you see Andre on stage… showman. Musical talent aside this young man has presence that is reminiscent of a young Brian Setzer, working the stage and the room with an irresistible charisma. It’s not all theatrics with these boys though, they do have the musical chops to go with it." — B Lynn Hartling//Canadian Beats
