News: Escuela Grind Release ‘Distant Disruptor’ Flexi

Escuela Grind have released new track “Distant Disruptor” as part of the Decibel Magazine flexi series, and it’s available for purchase now.  The song, which will not appear on the band’s forthcoming record, was recorded at Salem, Massachusetts’ GodCity studios with producer Kurt Ballou.

Decibel Magazine say:

“New England master blasters Escuela Grind will melt faces with a new full-length LP on MNRK Heavy this fall, but since your face can’t wait until then, we’re bringing you a brand-new track courtesy of the Decibel Flexi Series! Exclusive track ‘Distant Disruptor’ delivers 75 blistering seconds of rabid deathgrind and will not be featured on the new Escuela Grind record! This lil’ ripper isn’t available anywhere else, but you can jam it now.”

Lest we forget, Escuela Grind recently dropped the first single/video “Always Watching You” from their new LP set for release this Fall via MNRK Heavy. The video was directed by Zack Perez for Astral Media.

Escuela Grind vocalist Katerina Economou comments:

“Most of ‘Always Watching You’ was written in a practice space by Jesse and Krissy, and refined during sound checks we had over the year. I’ve had this desire to write a song where I could portray the obsessive stalker girl archetype through lyrics for a while. Although not physically threatening, it’s really interesting that society is so terrified of this stereotype. In ‘Always Watching You,’ I wanted this fantastical, ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’-style imagery that was rooted in the gore and horror of death metal. Themes of para-social relationships, anxieties from social media, and an omnipresent algorithm are strongly observed in this song and throughout the entire album.”

Escuela Grind are deep in the mix of a seven-week summer tour of Europe that launched on June 21 in Lubbock, DE.
