Spinefarm Records signs Toothgrinder

Metalnews Power of
Spinefarm Records is thrilled to announce the signing of New Jersey quintet Toothgrinder. The band is already incredibly active, armed with a brand new EP and a US tour that is happening currently. Toothgrinder will release its label debut in the form of the Schizophrenic Jubilee EP, which was produced, mixed and mastered by Taylor Larson (Periphery, Darkest Hour). 

For a taste of what’s to come check out “The Hour Angle” at Soundcloud here.

Toothgrinder will continue to push heavy metal into the future with their unusual song structures, torrents of riffs and scaled-the-bowels-of-hell vocal attack. But it's not all metallic fists and fury; the band's music is smartly crafted and it is sonically provocative. In fact, their music sounds like the result of spending too many Friday nights in July in bottlenecked, bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Garden State Parkway. You've got to let that frustration out somehow and it's as though Toothgrinder took their frustration out on their instruments.

Toothgrinder vocalist Justin Matthews said, "Toothgrinder were birthed from a brotherhood of musicians who wanted nothing more than to create aggressive energy and deviate from the status quo. The bond that five best friends initiated through childhood will forever last a lifetime. Through blood, sweat and tears, our family has taken on an endeavor that was never thought possible. Our perseverance and tenacity would not be shown to the world without our good friends in Outerloop and Spinefarm. We could not be happier." 

Additionally, Toothgrinder are on tour in the US with Periphery, The Contortionist and Intervals through October.

Toothgrinder are:
Justin Matthews – vocals/keys
Matt Arensdorf – bass/vocals
Matt Mielke – guitars
Jason Goss – guitars
Wills Weller – drums
