Official press release:

New England extreme metal unit Escuela Grind will release its new LP, Memory Theater, on September 30. Produced by Kurt Ballou, the album -- the band's first for MNRK Heavy  -- features 9 tracks of sharp, scorching underground music that rages and rips in equal measure.

Today, Escuela Grind releases a video for the new song, "Forced Collective Introspection". Directed by Michael Jari Davidson (Alice in Chains), the barn-burning clip is an ode to the 1971 science fiction film, THX 1138, a work of sociological commentary set in a dystopian world where individuality and love are forbidden. The clip debuted via Knotfest.

Vocalist Katerina Economous on the new release:

We again teamed up with director Michael Jari Davidson to create the video for "Forced Collective Introspection. The video references 1971's anti-authoritarian movie "THX 1138", where the band is held in a white void by masked guards, and reduced to objectified numbers. Harassed in prison cells, the band makes their escape in a Shawshank fashion. The theme of the video runs throughout all of our music: we must resist and attempt to escape their control to regain our humanity.
