Handgrenades Tunnels Release Party

One of Detroit’s most killer alt-rock bands since their formation in 2008, and arguably the best alternative band from Downriver since Sponge, Handgrenades has a reputation for performing great shows. The band’s highly anticipated fourth album, Tunnels, has a Nov. 4 release date, and the first single “Daily Routine” will please both ex-emo kids and alt-hipster fans alike. If you haven’t heard anything from their three previous albums (Easier, The Morning After, Three Cheers for The Wonder Years), then just imagine Arctic Monkeys, but less groovy and more dance-y. They definitely have a very indie, hi-fi feel about them, but it’s all energized, and their melodies are almost Monkees-esque thanks to the satisfyingly catchy nature of their refrains. Handgrenades can even sound, occasionally, like early R.E.M. circa Reckoning. The release party at the Loving Touch is going to be a pretty rad time, and their tour will start on Nov. 17. The show starts at 8 p.m.; 22634 Woodward Ave., Ferndale;; Tickets are $5.
