Direct from the Warped tour, Divided by Friday join Complete Control to talk about surviving auto wrecks and internet haters with comedian Grant Cotter.
These young and dynamic artists all laugh over their less glamorous pasts, and learning to fit in with enormously powerful celebrities.
Divided By Friday, the four-piece rock band from Laurinburg, NC, has joined the Hopeless Records family! Made up of lead vocalist and guitarist Jose Villanueva, guitarist and vocalist Matt Morgan, drummer Al German, and bassist Drew Howard, this quartet is already armed with a four-track EP, The Constant, available now for download.
San Francisco Weekly describes Grant Lyon as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.” Born in Los Angeles, taken to Chicago for middle school, high school in Sacramento, college in Santa Cruz, Grant has been around. He is a practitioner of sophisticated immaturity – his comedy blends intelligent wit with pure silliness all while maintaining a relaxed surfer-dude personality. A history major in college, his infatuation with this nation’s past and present stands out throughout his show.
