Baltimore’s NOISEM has announced Cease To Exist U.S.A. — a widespread spring tour across the country — in support of their third LP, Cease To Exist, which saw release in March through 20 Buck Spin.
NOISEM’s Cease To Exist LP was recorded at Developing Nations by Kevin Bernsten (Integrity, Full Of Hell, Magrudergrind), mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Integrity, Black Breath), and completed with artwork by Ethan McCarthy/Cool Ghoul Ltd. (Primitive Man).
Following their East Coast run supporting the album in March, NOISEM now takes the album’s scorching songs out across the country with more than a month of solid touring on Cease To Exist U.S.A. The action starts May 5th when the band supports Ringworm at their hometown record release show in Cleveland. The tour rips through the Southeast and across to the West Coast where they meet up with Call Of The Void for a set of shows, after which NOISEM teams up with Organ Dealer to tour back across the East Coast. See all confirmed tour dates below and watch for updates as the routing expands.

NOISEM returns from the dead with Cease To Exist; leaner, meaner, with a new label and new life. After heavy momentum with their second LP, Blossoming Decay, and subsequent touring including the 2015 Decibel Magazine tour supporting Carcass, Gorguts, and The Black Dahlia Murder, the band seemingly disappeared. However, 2018 saw them return in new form, ready to resume their place among the most promising young bands in metal. This was met with a late-2018 non-album single, “Sin Rash,” released through the Adult Swim singles series.
Keeping with the tradition of the most classic grindcore albums, Cease To Exist is an immediately aggressive attack of confrontational energy, pushing the pace with a withering ten tracks over twenty-two minutes. An eruption of grinding blastbeats, unceasing death-thrash riffs, and an acidic vocal snarl to rival prime Jeff Walker, Cease To Exist quells any notion that NOISEM would ease up with time. If nothing else, the band’s third LP is their most seething, vicious, and inwardly dark album yet. Cease To Exist displays a cacophony of grind, death, thrash, punk, and hardcore, seamlessly blended, blistered, and set ablaze. With Cease To Exist, NOISEM makes a full circle statement of intent; a savage declaration in the face of an ever more bleak future. Fans of early Carcass, Repulsion, Napalm Death, Exhumed, Nasum, Terrorizer, Mammoth Grinder, Black Breath should get on board.
