They’ve got a new death metal-focused EP coming on January 12 via MNRK Heavy, but Escuela Grind ain’t satisfied with just putting that out and walking away from the project. Not even for a second did they consider not taking that shit out on the road to fuck their fans up just a little bit. So as DDEEAATHHMMEETTAALL makes the rounds, the New England-based act will be traveling North America and throwing down over the course of 39 stops and five weeks.
Set to kick off on January 10 in Middletown, New York and coming to a close on February 17 in Boston, the tour will feature supporting acts Take Offense, Come Meirda, Slow Pulse, Bonginator, Frog Mallet, and Brat at various stretches of the tour.
Escuela Grind vocalist Katerina Economou said her bandmates and she are ready to bring about a reign of chaos across the continent.
“AMERICA! We are coming to crush more poser flesh under our New Balances and Nikes under the command of Big Homo. We are so thrilled to have a wildly diverse range of bands touring with us and there’s a bunch of cities we haven’t been to in a while, so we’re stoked to throw down with all of you.
“We’ll be playing a bunch of new material, including our new EP, and stuff from the upcoming album. This is your chance to hear the new shit before anyone else. We’ve been grinding hard on the road all year, and this is our first headliner since last April so expect a wilder, more skull cracking Escuela Grind experience.
“Be there. Karate kick your friends, get crushed in a wall of death, stage dive onto a teenager and show up with a black eye and broken nose at work the next day. This is going to be fucking wild. This is grinding deathviolence for the girls, the gays and the theys…and the lifers. See you there.”
As for where they’re at today, the band is currently on tour in Europe supporting the great Napalm Death.
DDEEAATTHHMMEETTAALL will be released on January 12 via MNRK Heavy, but you can preorder your copy today.
