MAGRUDERGRIND To Release New Album II February 12, 2016 First Song Streaming via Noisey; Artwork and Track Listing Revealed

bf9e5324-d3d8-412e-82ae-0381e7ce2c6cOne of extreme music’s most distinctive modern acts, MAGRUDERGRIND have returned following a 6-year hiatus.  The band plays a punishing hybrid of grindcore, powerviolence and hardcore punk. Formed in 2002 in Washington, DC and currently based in Brooklyn, NY, MAGRUDERGRIND combines visceral lyrical content with a relentlessly abrasive sonic aesthetic. Owing much to the close-knit global DIY punk community, the band has since toured Europe, Asia, North and South America with the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Misery Index, and countless others.
MAGRUDERGRIND has teamed up with Relapse Records for the release of their new album II, on February 12, 2016. Again the album was recorded with engineer Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails).
II is a savage manifesto of scathing political and personal revolution and unquestionably MAGRUDERGRIND‘s most crushing and accomplished material to date.  II is can be pre-ordered in digital formats HERE and physical formats HERE.  Along with the artwork and track listing the first single “Sacrificial Hire” is available for streaming via Noisey HERE.
MAGRUDERGRIND will head out on a European tour with Primitive Man beginning February 26th in Tillburg, NL and running through March 27th in Antwerpen, BE.  A complete list of dates can be found below.  North American dates will be announced soon.
MAGRUDERGRIND released their debut Rehashed on Six Weeks Records in 2007, followed by their acclaimed eponymous sophomore effort in 2009 on Willowtip Records. Magrudergrind, engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Torche) and mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Phobia) sent the band into 2010 with notable appearances at Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest and Obscene Extreme Festival. This was followed by the EP Crusher in 2010, initially released on Scion Audio/Visual and in 2012 MAGRUDERGRIND was approached by HBO for a cameo on the show Veep featuring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, appearing in the show’s fifth episode.
