Exhumed commented:

“Despite the shuffling of lineups at the eleventh hour, we’re hella psyched to get out on the road and take you all To The Dead along with us. Furthermore, we’re very chuffed to welcome Escuela Grind to this tour. It’s gonna be a blast and we’re thankful for them for stepping up to make some noise with us on such short notice. And of course, we wish the Hulder crew a speedy recovery and all the best for their new album. See you casket-crushers, necromaniacs, and slaughtercultists out there on the road very fucken soon!”

Hulder added:

“Due to an unforeseen medical emergency within the live lineup, Hulder will not be able to join Exhumed, Vitriol, Molder and Castrator this Fall, and is to be replaced by Escuela Grind. This is not an announcement that is made lightly. We would like to extend gratitude to everyone involved in the logistics behind pushing forward with the tour as well as your continued support in the future.”

Escuela Grind Premiere “Forced Collective Introspection” Music Video

Escuela Grind have premiered a new video for their new song “Forced Collective Introspective.” This track is from the band’s new album “Memory Theater,” which will be released on September 30. Vocalist Katerina Economou commented:

“We again teamed up with director Michael Jari Davidson to create the video for ‘Forced Collective Introspection.’ The video references 1971’s anti-authoritarian movie ‘THX 1138,’ where the band is held in a white void by masked guards, and reduced to objectified numbers. Harassed in prison cells, the band makes their escape in a Shawshank fashion. The theme of the video runs throughout all of our music: we must resist and attempt to escape their control to regain our humanity.”

Escuela Grind Premiere “All Is Forgiven” Music Video

Escuela Grind have premiered a new video for their new song “All Is Forgiven.” This track is from the band’s new album “Memory Theater,” which will be released on September 30. The group commented:

“‘All Is Forgiven’ gives you another glimpse at the crushing power of our upcoming album ‘Memory Theater.’ The catchiness, the riffs, the dedication to blasts, it’s all there and we think you’re gonna really love it. This is a skull cracker for sure! We shot a really cool video for it with our friend Michael Jari Davidson, which you absolutely need to watch.”

Escuela Grind Premiere “Cliffhanger” Video

Escuela Grind have premiered a new video for their new song “Cliffhanger.” This track is from the band’s new album “Memory Theater,” which will be released on September 30. Vocalist Katerina Economou commented:

“‘Cliffhanger‘ is us branching out and including all of our influences into a heavy, danceable song. It’s a perfect representation of all the new things to expect from Escuela Grind. The lyrics are about the people that try to play both sides of the fence, play devil’s advocate and drag you down with them. It’s about fighting crab mentality. This is just a taste of all the killer stuff coming on ‘Memory Theater‘!”
