WHO IS THE NEXT NIRVANA?



That is the big question. But who actually will be the next Nirvana?!? No one. That’s impossible. No one will ever be Kurt Cobain and no one will write those songs again. But that phrase “The next (fill in the blank of any great past band)” has been used over and over again because we’re all searching for that next great band to call our own. The type of band that inspires change. That type of band ignites a new movement. The type of band that stirs your soul. Where is the next great band going to come from? Aberdeen? Seattle? Glasgow? Who knows.

But one thing for sure is that Nirvana influenced enough musicians that anything even close to Nirvana grabs the attention of music lovers who miss - or were never there because they were not born yet - the first grunge movement.

Some of the staff at the new indie label Grunge Pop Records saw Nirvana at their first show in Seattle. They saw and experienced Nirvana before they had even recorded their debut BLEACH. No one knew how important they would become, nor believe they would go from playing to almost no one - and in three short years - to becoming the biggest band in the world; and making the term “grunge” a worldwide sensation.

Well, it’s going to be the thirty-year anniversary of Nirvana’s NEVERMIND come this September 24th, and all hell is gonna break loose globally. Grunge Pop Records is already on the move to find and introduce to the world the next wave of grunge bands and they’ve already found some bands with many more to come.

PRINCE OF LILIES Single/Video out July 15, 2021

Debut Album VENT out Sept 24, 2021

7” Vinyl Split Single out Winter 2021


Sounding like they could have come out of Seattle in the ’90s, Prince Of Lilies are busting out raw, distorted, four-chord epics equal parts old school and new. Being heralded by the UK press as “Nirvana meets Hüsker Dü” and “The sound of Kings Of Leon being abused by Nirvana”, Prince Of Lilies fuse grunge, punk, and thrashing garage rock.
 Their forthcoming debut album VENT, recorded in just two days by Steve Albini, (Nirvana, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, Pixies, Fugazi), is the kind of album that lets you believe in the power of passionate rock music again. 
Echoing the likes of Nirvana's debut record or the early Soundgarden, Tad, and Mudhoney material - or anything for that matter on the early Sub Pop catalog - these are dynamic pop songs with a hardcore edge, replacing slickness for a gritty live feel and punk attitude.
