MAGRUDERGRIND Premiere Video for “Sacrifical Hire” via Loudwire


Brooklyn grind/powerviolence trio MAGRUDERGRIND have revealed a new video for “Sacrificial Hire”, the lead single from the band’s new album II. The video can be streamed AT THIS LOCATION.

MAGRUDERGRIND announced their return after a six-year hiatus with the brand-new record II, set to be released on CD/LP/Digital via Relapse Records on February 12, 2016. Again recorded with engineer Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Nails), II is a savage manifesto of scathing political and personal revolution and unquestionably MAGRUDERGRIND‘s most crushing and accomplished material to date.

II can be pre-ordered digitally via the band’s Bandcamp page HERE and on physical formats via Relapse HERE.

Additionally, MAGRUDERGRIND will head out on a month-long European tour with Primitive Man beginning February 26th in Tilburg, NL and running through March 27th in Antwerpen, BE.  A complete list of dates can be found below.

One of extreme music’s most distinctive modern acts, MAGRUDERGRIND plays a punishing hybrid of grindcore, powerviolence and hardcore punk. Formed in 2002 in Washington, DC and currently based in Brooklyn, NY, MAGRUDERGRIND combines visceral lyrical content with a relentlessly abrasive sonic aesthetic. Owing much to the close-knit global DIY punk community, the band has since toured Europe, Asia, and North & South America with the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Napalm Death, Misery Index, and countless others.

MAGRUDERGRIND released its first full-length Rehashed on Six Weeks Records in 2007, followed by their acclaimed eponymous sophomore effort in 2009 on Willowtip Records. Magrudergrind, engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Torche) and mastered by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Phobia) sent the band into 2010 with notable appearances at Hellfest, Maryland Deathfest and Obscene Extreme Festival.

The EP Crusher followed in 2010, initially released on Scion Audio/Visual. And in 2012 MAGRUDERGRIND was approached by HBO for a cameo on the show Veep featuring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and appeared in the show’s fifth episode.

Now MAGRUDERGRIND has teamed up with Relapse Records and returns after a 6-year hiatus with the new album II. The band will take their anti-musical revolution to the global stage throughout 2016 to annihilate every listener in its path.
