Escuela Grind Drops New Track + Video “Always Watching You”

Escuela Grind + Rotten Sound to Join Forces for May ‘Europe & UK Domination’ Tour
Seven-week Summer European Tour and Spotlight Festival Appearances Announced

New England extreme metal powerhouse, Escuela Grind, today drops the new single/video, “Always Watching You“. Recorded at Salem, Massachusetts’ GodCity studio with producer Kurt Ballou (High on Fire, Cave In), “Always Watching You” is taken from Escuela Grind‘s as-yet-untitled new LP, set for an autumn release. Pre-order/save “Always Watching You” at this location.

Stream a video for “Always Watching You“, directed by Zack Perez for Astral Media, at this location.

“Most of “Always Watching You” was written in a practice space by Jesse and Krissy, and refined during soundchecks we had over the year,” offers Escuela Grind vocalist Katerina Economou“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 parasocial relationships, anxieties from social media, and an omnipresent algorithm are strongly observed in this song and throughout the entire album.”

In sync with the release of “Always Watching You” and as part of its seemingly unending live gauntlet, Escuela Grind will launch European tour dates with Finnish grindcore band, Rotten Sound, on May 3. The ‘Europe & UK Domination’ tour will launch in Berlin, Germany and run through May 18 in Ypres, Belgium.

“EUROPE! We’re coming back to crush a bunch of shows with our homies in Rotten Sound, plus a few SICK festivals like Incineration, Music Match, 0161 Festival and Vort ‘N Vis Festival,” says Escuela Grind. “We’re stoked to bring the Nike and New Balance-shod feet of Escuela Grind back to Europe to grind posers into jelly and go crazy with friends old and new. Plus we’ll have new music out and we’ll be playing even more songs from our NEW ALBUM! Come on out to these shows, grind your face off, two-step, stage dive, meet your new bestie, make an arch nemesis, get spin-kicked in the face by a 17-year-old drinking Radler, buy some merch. It’s gonna rule! See you there!”
