Gruntruck was a grunge band formed in 1989 in Seattle, Washington by Ben McMillan and Scott McCullum, both previously from Skin Yard. They only released two albums and toured with Alice in Chains in Fall 1992; as well as with Pantera in Europe, 1993, who were supporting Vulgar Display of Power. According to Sean Kinney, they were Alice in Chains' most supported band at the time, opening alongside the Screaming Trees for Alice's Dirt tour.
The classic line-up reformed in the late 90's for various shows and recordings that never properly surfaced. In 2000 the band had a very successful comeback stint in the Northwest playing many shows to audiences eager for Gruntruck, however, the band disbanded permanently in 2002 leaving behind rumors of a possible album of unreleased rarities that may or may not surface in the very near future. Ben McMillan died from diabetes on January 26, 2008.
I'm not a big fan but I wanted to get them discovered.
Not very many people know about them.
