Escuela Grind expand US summer tour dates

Escuela Grind

Escuela Grind have recently been touring in support of their latest LP 'Memory Theater' heading out on a seven-week tour across North America making special guest appearances supporting Greg Puciato and The Acacia Strain, as well as headlining their shows.

The nine-track LP titled 'Memory Theater' which was released last September via MNRK Heavy received a positive score of '8' in our review, calling the album "sonic camaraderie, energetic and purposeful." The band's expanded tour dates can be found below.

Vocalist Katerina Economou commented on the record:

"On the new LP, we wanted a fantastical architectural theme, as the Memory Theater is meant to symbolize this internal building, composed of infinitely-expanding, constructed rooms. We wanted the artwork to show that each song is a 'room' within the mind. And each room contains symbolic objects of all ideas.

Sound-wise, we realized how important the physical aspect of our live performances is, and how we wanted our riffs and grooves to make people move. We demoed and composed these songs multiple times to get them exactly the way we wanted them."
