GRIDFAILURE: Track From Further Layers Of Societal Collapse EP Premiered At Loudwire; Collaborative Track With Walking Bombs Streaming At Blow The Scene


A new track GRIDFAILURE is now playing at Loudwire, as the hostile alchemist announces the impending free digital EP from which the sample has been extracted. The outfit also declares several additional recordings nearing completion, including its second full-length.

The trials initiated as Teeth Collection have since taken a new direction, these recordings now encapsulated in the second GRIDFAILURE full-length album of the same name. Though the title of the series has transformed, the free EP series continues as planned, the first of which is in its final stages. Further Layers Of Societal Collapse presents several random recordings which see the outfit’s works which infiltrate further realms of biomechanical madness, meshing ghostly and fractured elements of dark ambient, power electronics, and industrial metal with the confrontational wrath of tectonic hardcore on a rudderless course where anything goes.

Loudwire unloads an early track from GRIDFAILURE’s Further Layers Of Societal Collapse into the masses through its Rumblings From The Underground column, offering “Woodlands Of Self-Impalement” for your auditory displeasure. The write-up issues, “’Woodlands of Self-Impalement’ is seven-and-a-half minutes of brooding, ominous torture that begs for something catastrophic to happen, but it doesn’t — it just lurks in the shadows as you frantically survey your surroundings, just waiting for the axe to fall, pissing yourself with nervous anticipation. True apocalyptic nihilism at its electronic worst (that means best for all you uninitiated)!”

Stream “Woodlands Of Self-Impalement” through Loudwire at THIS LOCATION.

GRIDFAILURE will offer Further Layers Of Societal Collapse as a free download on October 30th through Bandcamp HERE.

Teeth Collection will be issued before the end of the year. Additional looming GRIDFAILURE recordings include a split with Richmond soloist Never Presence Forever, as well as multiple additional EPs, splits, collaborations, compilation tracks, videos, and more.

GRIDFAILURE is the auditory harvest of David Brenner (Earsplit, ex-Theologian, ex-Heidnik), who abuses dozens of instruments, brewing a haunted apocalypse aura wrought with unhinged vocal exploration in full DIY unaccountability The outfit’s Ensuring The Bloodline Ends Here debut was released in May via The Compound Recs. Orders for the alluringly economical eco-wallet CD receive free GRIDFAILURE paraphernalia HERE; digitally the album can be found at Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and most others.

DIE CHOKING: Intense New Video For “Dead Figurehead” Playing At Clrvynt; Band Confirmed For Maryland Deathfest, 1Fest, And More

Philadelphia’s unhinged grind squad DIE CHOKING has just issued the first official video from their lauded and unstoppable III LP through an exclusive premiere at Clrvynt, and as always, announces another round of upcoming live actions.

The rapid visual deployment for “Dead Figurehead” is as intense and warped as DIE CHOKING’s auditory explosiveness on the track. A whirlwind of international leaders and political propaganda is delivered through a white-knuckled ride through a world of radical dementia, the video directed by Mitchell Luna (Maruta, Noisear) and Josh Mahesh (Heikousen, Fraud).

DIE CHOKING issues, “‘Dead Figurehead’ is a fuck-off to intolerance and pushes against the rising neo-fascism we are seeing in the US right now. There is a transparency and widespread popular criticism of American politics that we haven’t really seen since the 1960’s. The current candidacy has been an eye-opening mirror for Americans. In the end, it seems elected politicians are frequently not the leaders we want or need. Unfortunately, they may be the leaders we deserve.”

Heavy music portal Clrvynt has hosted the premiere of the new “Dead Figurehead” video, stating, “Despite the ample gross-outs, DIE CHOKING‘s latest video isn’t about shock value — it’s about waking the hell up and smelling the sweet, rancid fumes emanating from our collective dumpster fire, which grows stronger by the day.”

Following DIE CHOKING’s first European tour early this year alongside Paris-based Department Of Correction, the tour will now repeat itself on US shores. DOC will head into the country mid-October to join up with DIE CHOKING for a week-and-a-half of tour dates down the East Coast, which comes to a finale at the massive The Fest 15 in Gainesville, Florida with the likes of Fucking Invincible, Coke Bust, Braid, Night Birds, and dozens more. The tour is surrounded by and includes a rash of shows with the likes of Noisear, Gadget, Pyrrhon, Trap Them, Yautja, Cloud Rat, and many others. DIE CHOKING will also take part in the multi-state 1Fest in January, including successive shows with Cloud Rat in New York City, Syracuse, and Boston. The band has also been confirmed for Maryland Deathfest 2017, set to appear with the likes of Autopsy, Insect Warefare, Siege, Warmaster, PLF, Iron Lung, and more.

One of 2015’s most unstoppable albums, DIE CHOKING’s III was initially released on limited vinyl through New York City-area-based The Compound Recs. after which it was licensed for release on CD through Poland’s Selfmadegod Records. Brand new merch designs and more are available through DIE CHOKING right HERE, vinyl and CDs can be ordered through The Compound HERE, and the CD is available in Europe through Selfmadegod HERE.
