DEAD IN THE DIRT: Debut LP Out This Week, Streaming At Invisible Oranges

The Blind Hole, the debut full-length studio effort from Atlanta’s straightedge/vegan grindcore activists DEAD IN THE DIRT, is now streaming in its entirety at Invisible Oranges/BrooklynVegan, as the record sees official release this week via Southern Lord. Taking DITD‘s downtuned, caustic riffs and pummeling blastbeats to their most morose and tonally oppressive levels to date, The Blind Hole kills off twenty-two tracks in less than twenty-four minutes, and though fueled by crushing distortion, the album boasts incredibly clear production values, recorded at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) in Chicago this April, and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, All Pigs Must Die, Baptists, Sleep).

Find yourself sucked mercilessly into The Blind Hole RIGHT HERE.

DEAD IN THE DIRT is currently touring in support of The Blind Hole, on their way to take part in the fourth annual The Power Of The Riff in LA this weekend alongside The Obsessed, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, Black Breath, M.D.C., Iceburn, Bastard Noise and more. They’ve also locked down a three-week Midwest/West Coast tour with Homewrecker and Harm’s Way in September. A full-on European tour for the Fall and more stateside live actions for the remainder of 2013 will be announced shortly.
