Music City Memo covers "Time to Prey"


NASHVILLE ­– On Friday, July 21, alternative electronic rock and pop artist Grimzlee will release his latest single of 2023, Time to Prey. Written and produced by Grimzlee, this song questions established narratives on fate, security and what comes at the end of it all.

With the electronic build up to crescendo and opening line, “Oh dear God,” preceding a heavy bass drop, listeners are immediately drawn into the track. Complimented by electro-rock drums, the lyrics draw listeners inside their own minds as they try to escape the sands of time and Reaper’s scythe. Grimzlee promises to welcome the listener when they are finished running from death, a promise we will all meet one day.

Time To Prey is about the need to live every moment you have in this world. Everyone’s time will run out and the reaper will be waiting for you. The question is, did you make it a life worth living?” says Grimzlee.

As a South Carolinian now based in Nashville, Grimzlee was born to break the musical box of Nashville’s country reputation. He draws influence from Foo Fighters, Asking Alexandria, Bring Me The Horizon, Slipknot, Deftones, Lil Peep, POORSTACY and more. Time to Prey is the newest single off his upcoming album, which is set for release in late summer. His previous single off the project, Miss Reaper, achieved 1.5 million Spotify streams. “Grimzlee is an extremely dedicated and reliable artist. I’ve always thought his biggest strength is knowing what will grab a listener’s attention, which is honestly what making music is all about. I’ve been working with him for years,” says Clayton Chewning, member of the metal band Atrial. Preview Time to Prey as Grimzlee holds your hand through existential dread. Don’t be scared, you’re okay (Where am I, what the hell is wrong with me?) Your heads on the end of my blade (I can’t really even think about it) Your tomorrows are taken away The end’s not romantic as they say You were here and baby next thing you’re gone (Where did it all go wrong) There’­s no need for you to cry Did you remember that you’ll die? Take my hand, I’ll be your friend Come now, let me show you the end.

About Grimzlee From the cicada-singing summers of Hartsville, South Carolina, to the rolling hills of Nashville, Tennessee, Grimzlee is breaking the traditional genre box associated with Music City. Grimzlee brings electro-punk beats with haunting melodies, crossing multiple genres with his unique sound. This “melancholy but hopeful” sound master grew up on the heavy bass lines of Metallica, Van Halen, and Asking Alexandra, and is highly influenced by Foo Fighters and Bring Me The Horizon. Fans find themselves headbanging along to tracks as they cross boundaries between alternative rock/pop, experimental post-hardcore and metal with pop punk homages. Music’s newest madman hit the ground running, playing in the metal band Atrial for four years before launching his solo project in April of 2022. In just over a year, Grimzlee has passed the 140,000 monthly Spotify listener milestone and over 1.5 million streams on Miss Reaper, a notable accomplishment for independent acts. To create a “nostalgic feeling that’s new,” Grimzlee self-produces to secure the perfect soundscape for every song. Follow Grimzlee online:

About the Carolina Cowboys: The Carolina Cowboys are based in Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C., where the team will hold its second Cowboys Days homestand on September 22-24, 2023, the eighth event of the 10-event 2023 PBR Team Series regular season. The Cowboys are coached by PBR co-founder Jerome Davis. Under the leadership of General Manager Austin Dillon, the 2018 Daytona 500 Champion, the team is owned by Richard Childress and Jeff Broin. From a one-man team in 1969, Richard Childress grew Richard Childress Racing (RCR) into one of the most-respected organizations in NASCAR, with nearly 400 team members supporting full-time operations in the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series. As a car owner, Childress, who was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2017, has earned more than 200 victories in NASCAR’s top-three national series, 16 championships, three Daytona 500 championships and three Brickyard 400 championships. Away from the track, Childress is a businessman, philanthropist and conservationist – he loves wine, the outdoors, supporting the military, and investing in America’s youth. Childress’ properties include the award-winning Childress Vineyards. He sits on the board of directors of Growth Energy and holds an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Northwestern Ohio. Entrepreneur and agriculturalist Broin is the founder and CEO of bioprocessing giant POET, the world’s largest biofuel producer. Broin and RCR have a longstanding partnership through NASCAR and worked together to upgrade the league to 15% bioethanol. About the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team Series: The PBR Team Series is an elite new league that features the world’s top bull riders competing on teams in five-on-five bull riding games during an 11-event season beginning in July and culminating in a team championship at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas November 4-6. During the 2022 season, each of the eight teams representing teams in Austin, TX; Fort Worth, TX; Glendale, AZ; Kansas City, MO; Nashville, TN; Oklahoma City, OK; Ridgedale, MO; and Winston-Salem, NC will host a three-day homestand. There will also be neutral site games in Cheyenne, WY and Anaheim, CA. To determine team rosters, the league held a rider draft on May 23 prior to start of the 2022 season among any bull riders who have declared for the draft during a league eligibility window. The PBR Team Series builds on the existing structure of professional bull riding with the same basic rules for judging and scoring qualified 8-second bull rides. Events will be staged in a tournament-style format with all teams competing in head-to-head matchups against a different opponent each day. Each game will feature five riders per team squaring off against another team. Full team rosters will be comprised of seven riders on the core roster and three practice squad members. The team with the highest aggregate score of qualified rides among its riders will be declared the winner of each game. The event winner will be the team with the most game wins across an event, with a special bonus round designed as a tie-breaker to determine final event standings. All PBR Team Series events will be carried on either the CBS Television Network, streaming live on Paramount+, CBS Sports Network, or RidePass on PlutoTV.
