The news follows the release of Escuela Grind‘s barnstorming new album Memory Theater, released September 2022¬†via¬†the band’s new label home of MNRK Heavy.

Order Memory Theater now here:

Produced by Converge guitarist/ God City producer Kurt Ballou, Escuela Grind‘s Memory Theater features nine¬†tracks of sharp, scorching underground music that rage¬†and rip¬†in equal measure.¬†Escuela Grind excel at¬†stitching¬†together a new metallic hardcore monster, borne from the rotten corpses of grind and power violence and littered with gleefully unhinged blasts of percussive bombast and chaos.

The music might be terrifying, but the overwhelming spirit behind Escuela Grind is a message of empowerment. As it destroys musical boundaries, the quartet attack¬†the idea of ‚Äúgatekeeping‚ÄĚ with equal ferocity. Any time Katerina Economou (vocals), Jesse Fuentes (drums), Kris Morash (guitar), and Tom Sifuentes (bass, touring) convene, an aural apocalypse will ensue.¬†

Memory Theater,¬†Escuela Grind‘s¬†sophomore album, is seven minutes shorter than Slayer‚Äôs¬†Reign in Blood,¬†but with a few songs running past the three-minute mark, it‚Äôs downright epic by grindcore norms. Delivering on the promise of several split records, a handful of EPs (including¬†GGRRIINNDDCCOORREE¬†and¬†PPOOWWEERRVVIIOOLLEENNCCEE, both released in 2020), and the full-length, Indoctrination, the nine songs on Memory Theater¬†offer a near-psychedelic trip to the genre‚Äôs soul.¬†The album title references a specific historical concept, constructing a ‚Äúspace‚ÄĚ from one‚Äôs internal ideas, knowledge, and perception. An architect by trade, Economou explores philosophy, politics, and experiential experimentation, building a kind of structure amidst the band’s musical cacophony.

Escuela Grind, who¬†performed as one of the featured acts at the 2022¬†Psycho Las Vegas¬†festival, are¬†currently in the midst of a U.S. headlining tour. The 23-city Forced Collective Introspection” tour launched on September 3 in Salem, MA and includes performances at New England’s¬†RPM Fest, Illinois’¬†Full Terror Assault¬†Open Air, and Cleveland’s¬†Hacked Up for BBQ¬†death fest.
