It’s going to be a huge year for girlfriends (Travis Mills & Nick Gross) so make sure to catch them in a city near you – the band will be joining Avril Lavigne on her European tour starting next week! Check out the dates below.
With 93+ million global streams to date and roughly half a million monthly listeners on Spotify, the prolific pair conjure songs that are at once pleasingly familiar and warmly unique. Inspired by the style of caffeinated pop-punk that first shaped them, the group’s music is a vehicle for self-expression and catharsis, a means to process grief, uncertainty, and renewed vigor for life destined to connect with others who struggle.
SPIN called girlfriends’ self-titled debut “polished, impassioned, and commanding,” comparing their cross-genre appeal to MGK and Trippie Redd.
This announcement comes off the heels of the release of the duo’s brand new single, “Over My Dead Body,” out now via Big Noise. Produced by Andrew Goldstein (Machine Gun Kelly, Papa Roach, blackbear), the catchy track referencing the raw past of a toxic relationship brings a cathartic release with melodic emotional intensity paired with newly found freedom. Listen to “Over My Dead Body” now HERE.
As the exceedingly prolific pair known as girlfriends, Travis Mills and Nick Gross conjure songs that are at once pleasingly familiar and warmly unique. In less than three years, the duo created not one but two urgent, inspired, and original albums. They’ve already sold out the Roxy in LA; opened for Machine Gun Kelly; toured with Mod Sun and Grayscale; and played a festival with Twenty One Pilots. SPIN called girlfriends’ self-titled debut “polished, impassioned, and commanding,” comparing their cross-genre appeal to MGK and Trippie Redd. Fans streamed the first album more than 46 million times on Spotify alone, driven by songs like “California,” “Where Were You” (ft. Travis Barker), and “Jessica.” 2022 saw the release of standout singles like “High Again,” “Toaster For A Swim,” “Missing You,” “Pretty Mouth” and “Tattoo.” Their sophomore album (e)motion sickness was released in June 2022. Before girlfriends formed, neither Travis nor Nick were strangers to creativity or community. The brash rap songs Travis posted on MySpace as T. Mills led to a major label deal, Warped Tour, and diehard fans. He later became a host for Apple Music 1’s The Travis Mills Show and MTV’s TV Series Help! I’m In A Secret Relationship, with new episodes airing every Tuesday at 9pm ET. The show in its second season investigates relationships kept secret from loved ones to uncover the strange reasons behind them. Nick Gross, entrepreneur, CEO of Big Noise, founder of the Find Your Grind education platform and drummer of girlfriends and Goldfinger, founded the band with Travis in 2020. Both guys are equally enthusiastic about having another go at the style of caffeinated pop-punk that first shaped them. The group’s music is a vehicle for self-expression and catharsis, a means to process grief, uncertainty, and renewed vigor for life destined to connect with others who struggle. That’s something girlfriends will never take for granted.
