Grimelda (fka The Faps) is the collaborative art-punk meets freak-rock project of Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata. This new name, taken from their 2018 album, symbolizes a shift into further exploration – from punishing noise-rock anthems & blatantly ripping off radio hits to math-y future-punk ragers. Their loud-yet-catchy compositions and gregarious, interactive stage presence (often handing instruments to total strangers, for better or worse) has landed them alongside an array of notable acts like Single Mothers, TEKE:TEKE, Obnox, JOHN, the Dirty Nil, and Shannon & the Clams.

After a 10-year history of cross-Canada tours, 6 releases, countless festival appearances (Sled Island, Winterruption, FOCUS Wales), and more than a few food-fight mosh-pits, Grimelda have set their sights on global expansion, innovative musical collabs, and a live show that is even more refined and unhinged. Expect to be pleasantly annoyed and excited by a louder, weirder, and wilder duo that forever lurks in plain sight.
