They lure you in with short and sweet, grungy alt rock songs. Lyrics reflecting experiences at bars and concerts. Local favorite The Jaggernauts are here to party! It’s been a few years since their last album Safe was released in 2014 and they’re ready to share their newest creation. Whispered Stories From My Grandmother’s Lips tells tales about playing tabletop games all night in the garage, partying the night away, and of course, the mythical creature Chupacabra. The album grabs you with short upbeat songs and progresses into some longer pieces that distill the same peppy energy. The band has been eager to share these songs and perform them for the Eau Claire scene. They performed a special one-night-only release show The Mousetrap on Oct. 28 to introduce their new music. We don’t see much of The Jaggernauts these days, so it made for a fun night of partying and music – fitting for the album. If you’re looking to relive the experience or you didn’t get a chance to rock, check out their songs on Spotify. Then you can shout, dance, and party as much as you’d like.
