New England extreme metal unit Escuela Grind announces a spring North American headlining tour in support of its celebrated new LP, Memory Theater (read our review here). The three-week trek will kick off on March 29 in Montreal, Québec and run through April 16 in Morgantown, WV, featuring support from Massachusetts’ Bonginator. The run will also include an Escuela Grind performance at the 2023 Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, where the group will share the stage with Suicidal Tendencies, Incantation, and more.

The band comments on the news:

“Who’s ready to be ripped apart by endless hooks?! Touring Europe with Napalm Death is killer but we are also very stoked to be back in the States next month doing what we love. It’s going to be rad bringing Bonginator along for the ride too. See you out there. SKREEEEEE!”
