Upstate New York/Western Massachusetts grindcore / powerviolence trio ESCUELA GRIND today unleash their “That Which Does Not Bend Must Break” single via Bandcamp. The special digital single comes in advance of the band’s upcoming US tour set to commence this Monday in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! See all confirmed dates below.

“That Which Does Not Bend Must Break” is a punishing rager of a track that Brooklyn Vegan crowned, “an 80-second dose of pulverizing grindcore with an apocalyptic message,” while Revolver Magazine wrote, “the minute-and-twenty-second ripper assaults the listener with discombobulating drum patterns and staccato guitar chugs, and then the ‘core comes in when vocalist Katerina Economou bellows, ‘Fuck the world/Your god isn’t real,’ with enough force to level an office park.”

ESCUELA GRIND delivers a cogent fusion of grindcore, powerviolence, and death metal with politically-charged lyrics inspired by modern contradictions, unrest, and personal growth. Since their formation in 2016, the hyper-powered trio’s knack for sonic decimation has captivated the extreme metal underground. Kerrang! Hailed the band’s “short-sharp-shock death-grind that would blow the wigs off of casual listeners,” while No Echo noted, “the group brings to mind the fast hardcore punk of the Slap a Ham Records and 625 Productions catalogs, all pushed through a focused delivery that keeps the attack on point.” ESCUELA GRIND was listed among Revolver’s Bands You Need To Know (2018) and has had music featured in the movie Honorkilling featuring Mercedes the Muse (TROMA films). With years on the road behind them and the ambition to take it even further in a post pandemic world, ESCUELA GRIND brings their unmistakable positivity and high-energy to each performance.
