Spinefarm Records is thrilled to announce the signing of New Jersey quintet Toothgrinder. The band will release its label debut in the form of the "Schizophrenic Jubilee" EP, which was produced, mixed, and mastered by Taylor Larson (Periphery, Darkest Hour).
The release date is set for November 4th. For a taste of what's to come check out "The Hour Angle" below. Additionally, Toothgrinder is on tour with Periphery, The Contortionist and Intervals through October. Spinefarm Records also had this to say:
"Toothgrinder will continue to push heavy metal into the future with unusual song structures, torrents of riffs and scaled-the-bowels-of-hell vocal attack. But it's not all metallic fists and fury; the band's music is smartly crafted and it is sonically provocative. In fact, their music sounds like the result of spending too many Friday nights in July in bottlenecked, bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Garden State Parkway. You've got to let that frustration out somehow and it's as though Toothgrinder took their frustration out on their instruments."
Toothgrinder vocalist Justin Matthews said, "Toothgrinder were birthed from a brotherhood of musicians who wanted nothing more than to create aggressive energy and deviate from the status quo. The bond that five best friends initiated through childhood will forever last a lifetime. Through blood, sweat and tears, our family has taken on an endeavor that was never thought possible. Our perseverance and tenacity would not be shown to the world without our good friends in Outerloop and Spinefarm. We could not be happier." More...
