More About GRO:
This is the third full-length studio album for GRO, which includes Jamey Ice (guitar, banjo, mandolin), Josh Jenkins (vocals, guitar, piano), Joshua Wilkerson (guitar, vocals), Denton Hunker (drums, percussion) and Geoff Ice (bass, vocals).

Recorded in Oklahoma and Texas, ‘Under Fire’ was co-produced by Jordan Critz, Chad Copelin, and Jarod Evans and features 15 affecting, original songs. Elements of pop, rock and roots are bound together by GRO’s full-throttle energy and incredible harmonies. “Our primary purpose was just to make the most authentic and honest music possible,” says Jamey Ice. “We also tried to push ourselves to think outside of our traditional instruments. We used all sorts of random percussive instruments and unique drums; we used banjos, mandolins, baritone guitars, 12 string guitars, upright bass, accordion, lap steel, old vintage amps and old vintage guitars. We tried to push ourselves to explore more, even if it meant forfeiting safe and traditional structure and instrumentation.”

GRO’s sublime new single “Heart of Me” is available now. Click here for a free download.

The band will kick off an extensive North American tour on March 29 in Houston, TX, crossing the country with special guest Graham Colton. Tickets are on sale now at greenriverordinance.com.

GRO first gained popularity with their major label debut “Out of Our Hands” on Virgin Records in 2009. The album skyrocketed to No.10 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. From there, the sought-after band had two Top 40 radio singles (“Come On” and “On Your Own”) and saw their infectious pop rock songs spinning on more than 20 TV shows, with their music videos hitting MTV and VH1.
