Grand Slam released an exclusive acoustic version of “Crime Rate”

Grand Slam are revealing a new exclusive acoustic version of “Crime Rate“. A version of the electric track from the band’s debut album “Hit the Ground”.

Grand Slam

Back in the post Thin Lizzy days, Laurence Archer wrote and performed with Phil Lynott as Grand Slam. Sadly, Grand Slam was cut short in its prime. With Phil Lynott’s untimely death leaving a hole in the fabric of rock music to this day. Laurence went on to make his name playing with UFO but always nurtured a long-term plan to rebuild the Grand Slam machine. And here it is — primed and ready.

The new band honors the traditions of the band’s history whilst also looking to the future. Classic tracks co-written by Lynott and Archer sit alongside a set of brand new songs that embody the same ethos of freedom, positivity and adrenalin that ran through Grand Slam in 1984. As such fans will get to hear Lynott co-writes alongside brand new material from a very special band steeped in rock history.

The debut album was released to widespread critical acclaim in November 2019. “Hit The Ground” is available on CD, LP, digitally and also on Limited Edition Gold Vinyl.
