Growing up on 90's alternative rock like Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, and The Lemonheads, songwriter John Russell wanted to scratch an itch that had been around his whole life. After digging into writing a bit more, he decided to expand Gnawing into a full band project, revisiting the band's original EP and growing their sound as a trio. Adding Richmond natives Christian Monroe and Chris Matz, Gnawing found a new energy with new ideas.
After signing to Refresh in 2019, Gnawing released a 7” and EP, Shaky, in April of 2020 just as the COVID-19 pandemic took over. With cancelled tour plans, the band found a new home online, performing on numerous live streams and chatting on podcasts. They also took the time away from the road to focus on writing and recording what would eventually become the band's debut album, You Freak Me Out.
Engineered by Allen Bergendahl at Rabid Ear Studios, Richmond, VA. Addt’l recording done by Christian Monroe at Lakeside Mini Storage in Richmond, VA. Mixed by Allen Bergendahl and Gnawing. Mastered by Justin Pizzoferrato. Additional performances by Wes Hamilton, Ali Mislowsky.
