Old Gray was an American emo band from Hooksett and Auburn, New Hampshire.

History[edit]

Old Gray began in 2011. The band was formed by Cameron Boucher, Charlie Singer, Zane McDaniel, and Raphael Bastek. In 2013, Boucher would form punk band Sorority Noise in which would later feature Singer. Due the prominent rise in popularity of Sorority Noise, Old Gray would often have to take long periods of inactivity aside for some one-off shows. Since then, they have released two full-length albums, three EPs, six splits, and two singles. Their debut album, An Autobiography, was released in 2013.[1][2] Their second full-length album, Slow Burn was released on December 9, 2016 via Boucher's Flower Girl Records.[3]

In April 2018, the band announced their final shows but cancelled them due to the mental well being of Boucher after a third party claimed they had sexually assaulted a friend of theirs. In December 2018, these claims were refuted in a joint post by both Boucher and the person involved, saying that "they were pressured into making this statement" and that "anything that did occur was not purposeful or malicious." [4]
