Earth Groans Releasing "Renovate" EP

Solid State Records has announced the signing of South Dakota quartet Earth Groans, with "Renovate" coming May 12th, 2017.

“We want to be a ministry first, and a band second,” says vocalist Jeremy Schaeffer. The debut EP "Renovate" consists of five songs of chaotic and dissonant metallic hardcore that's deeply introspective.

The genesis of Earth Groans was during a deeply tumultuous period in Schaeffer’s life. As he details “I was going through what a lot of young people go through as they grow up. A lot of things I thought I was enjoying just turned out to be empty. Things in my life both professionally and personally just weren’t fulfilling to me anymore. That’s what 'Renovate' is about, doing work on yourself and getting down to the bare foundation. For me that foundation is my faith.”

Rounded out by Brady Mueller (drums), Zachariah Mayfield (guitar) and Kaden Burton (bass), Earth Groans has toured relentlessly.

As Schaeffer relates: “South Dakota gets skipped a lot on big national tours. As a result we don’t have a huge scene for our style of music but we love playing shows anywhere. When people complain about their scene and say it’s kind of dead, we say the scene isn’t dead until we are.”

Case in point, Earth Groans will be embarking on the "One Dollar Brawler" headlining tour and this entire Midwest run (5/13-5/28) will just cost $1.00 to attend.
